Turns out Emily is a boy. That’s okay, his full name was Emily William since I wasn’t sure, but it was still a shock, though I don’t know why. It wasn’t like the cat had been playing with Barbies and wearing pink. In fact, Emily William is pretty comfortable being gender neutral, possibly because he’s been spayed. (We found out a lot at the vet’s.) Anyway, Emily is taking it in stride, much better than he took the trauma that was the cat carrier. He seems to have forgiven me now, but it took a while.
I knew you’d want to know.
We also found out his weight. That’s thirteen pounds of cat up there. I was impressed. That cat carrier was heavy.
