I Had To

Man with cat

“This has got to stop. You know this has to stop! I’ve been waiting for you for an hour.”

I stood as close to him as I could. “I’m sorry, it’s just that they look so lonely.”

He held me close, kissed my hair. “Yeah, I know, but they’re not your responsibility. And to be completely honest, you look like a lunatic standing there talking to them through the fence every day.”

I opened my mouth to respond just as I heard a meow from the cat carrier I’d hidden on my way in.

“No, you didn’t!”

“I had to!”
