“I like too many things and get all confused and hung-up running from one falling star to another till i drop. This is the night, what it does to you. I had nothing to offer anybody except my own confusion.”

There is something so poignant about caring for Coco, my aging cat whose body is wearing out, her life becoming smaller and fragile.
She can hear the birds, but I don't know if she sees them. The Bluejays swoop from the rain gutter onto the driveway and pick up peanuts, while I sit, Coco on lap, in a chair in front of the garage.
Each night now she endures "sub-q" fluids. A B-12 shot on Fridays.
One meow as the needle goes in, and then she is patient.
We are on borrowed time now together. Spending it with the birds.
