I went over to Garry's old apt for the first time in more than four months. I was afraid the cat, Nutmeg, an adorable stray kitty that his roommate adopted, would not remember me. She has hazel eyes, a mishmash of gray and sand in her coat, and she's one of my favorite animal creatures in the world.
But I let her sniff my fingers, and in a minute she was rubbing her furry head into my hand. Dear cat!
