Ruthiella What a great picture and so typically CAT: not on the tile not on the floor but precisely one the wood strip that separates them. I‘m so sorry you lost your cat family member. 💔 4y

Mentally I'm in a dark place and trying to read Woolf's diary isn't good for me. So, I'm taking my therapist's advice and switching to another book for my nighttime reading.
