i am eschewing kablpomo for catvember. this is due to two reasons: 1. this whole year has been a kablpomo (well, kablpoye) and 2. i really want to buckle down on my devil’s syrup book and get it finished.
so, we begin with gabby. gabby was my cat when i first graduated from college. she followed me everywhere and wouldn’t shut up. she slept on the dip between my hip and waist every night. she was with me for a year, dying from kidney something or eating a lily or paint chips or something. i got chasey almost two weeks before gabby died, so there was no going back on the cat thing.
