I am going to outlive my cat


When I was in my mid-twenties, I got my cat, Gatsby, as a kitten. He's 10 now. As a general rule, cats live about 10-15 years, then they die and you cry a lot. I had the thought today, "What if I don't outlive my cat?" When you get your first cat, you are supposed to outlive them. You are supposed to grieve, wait a bit, get another cat. Then repeat. Several times.

So, I decided that I am definitely going to outlive my cat. I am going to live long enough to outlive several cats. It will be sad, but at least I will be there.

Wait. Did Murphy take this photo? Because I don't think I did.
