“ We will get another cat, son.” My dad said. My cat Midnight was old and sick. He was in pain. My dad and I agreed that he had to be put down. I was in my forties.

I should have been man enough to take the cat who chose me over the other members of the family. I couldn’t do it. My dad took Midnight to the vet while I was at work.

We missed having a cat and dog
