A letter to Ruby, my son's cat.
by Anonymous

I felt the need to buy you a tin. I chose a vintage pattern, a cheap Orla Kiely copy: cream, flowers with brown stems and green heads. Its lid was mint green. There was a moment when I told myself it’s what you would have picked, that you’d like the flowers. I quickly quelled this lie. You didn’t have opinions on patterns or prints. The alternative had rabbits on, and deer. A joyful nature scene. It seemed unfair to bring other animals into this moment, even fake ones.

You are the first love that my boy has lost. I told him I was taking you to the vet, that you were unlikely to return home alive. I gave him the chance to say goodbye. He sat and held you close, fed you cheese.

All he asked was that we bury you in the garden. My chest ached. I’ll never forget the look of nervous hope when I collected him from school that day. Or how his heart sunk, his head sunk, his tears sunk, when I told him you were gone.

We sat on the couch and he held you in the tin, felt the weight of you. I let him peek inside, so he knew death was a solid thing. He asked if you would rot in the ground. I did not deny this, but the word rot was sour and sharp. There must be a kinder word, I thought, one less bound up with death. You would return to the earth, I said. Everything returns to the earth, eventually.
We had a little ceremony: there was music, we said kind words. We buried you with cheese and crisps, in the tin – lidless, so you could return to the earth. We ate cheese and crisps to rejoice in you.

That night my boy asked if there was a heaven. I wanted to give him a yes that he could cling to, but I could not. I told him that many people believed in heaven, but that I didn’t. I gave him the truth, which is all I had to give. I told him you were tired and your body ached, that your bones were slipping away from each other. I told him you were better off without breath, without your amber eyes open. I told him of your happy life, filled with love, and that death came when you were ready.

This morning, my boy distilled this letter to one line. I’ll miss Ruby, he said, she was so beautiful.

cat news

She named her cat "Brexit".
by Natalie O'Neill

(I've been alerted that the politician was simply making a joke about Brexit.... which IS a joke.)

A prominent French politician named her fickle feline Brexit because he can’t make up his mind whether to stay or bolt.

Nathalie Loiseau, the country’s minister for European affairs, said her kitty meows loudly by the door each morning — then obnoxiously refuses to leave when she opens it, according to Le Journal du Dominate.

“He wakes me up every morning meowing to death because he wants to go out, and then when I open the door he stays put, undecided, and then glares at me when I put him out,” she told the French paper, according to a translation by the UK Independent.

Her cat comment comes as a vote last week put the UK’s long-delayed decision to leave the European Union at a standstill.

This week, a vote could determine whether lawmakers will extend the Brexit negotiating period. But British Prime Minister Theresa May might reject the deal, made by the House of Commons, for the third time.

Loiseau, one of the top candidates for Emmanuel Macron’s party, is facing off against a far-right insurgency in upcoming European Parliament elections.
