And there is only a cat named Dulce to blame. She’s not mine, but I’m not sure that I can resist. I was going to hold fast to being a volunteer without a pet, but what am I supposed to do? I’ve got all this space and it would be pretty great to have a cat to share it with. Luckily the non-profit where I teach English to teens on Wednesdays shipped their latest batch of kittens off to live outside the city last week. So, I didn’t come home with one today.
