April 2017. One of the most inhospitable animals I’ve ever come across is my cat, Bob. Many visitors to my home over the years will testify to this. He is averse to humans. But as he’s aged he’s begun to yowl early in the mornings, pacing the living room and kitchen, for no apparent reason. Except that he’s alone. As family and dog begin to appear for the day, he stops yowling. He may not play with anyone or even get too close except for an occasional head butt. But he is happy he’s not the only one awake anymore. I guess I see his point now that it’s daylight savings and I have to rise and shine before the sun. Misery does love company.
