I have this cat and, well, the problem is not that I dislike her or resent her pointlessness, but…
I’m just never home these days. I come in, tread on her, empty the poop tray, tread on her again, refill the food bowl, go to bed, and spend half an hour scratching her head before she will let me sleep. Then I get up, tread on the cat, and leave the house.
I don’t feel like I’m being a very good father, and wonder if maybe I should find her a new home. Any long-termers out there can do better than me at petting, feeding, playing?
