I was broke, and hungry too. Payday seemed so far away.
I just closed from work and was home alone. Except of course, my two faithful cats.
I looked at Michelle and longed for her to give me that glimmer of hope. That thought that everything was going to be alright.
Henry walked in, came close, looked me in the eye… then arched his back. I lifted myself off the bed, and arched my back too. Michelle nodded. I could see she was happy.
Henry started towards the kitchen. I followed… on all fours. Michelle followed too.
We got to the kitchen and Henry meowed. I did the same, just before he tugged at the cabinet door. I opened it. Then I saw it. The single thing that could take my hunger away. I helped myself, and gave them some too. We ate like one big family, right there… on all fours.
