    Great story Matthew. I too have to compete with sports, especially now in Boston! Luckily, I have the cat to cuddle with during the playoffs!

    Thanks for sharing.

  2. Thanks, Sarah! The cat and I watched last night’s game together. He mostly slept, actually.

  3. Love it. We should hang out. Tulia would be excited to see your “at!” as she calls them.

  4. So what was it that made your cat vomit?

    Great essay.

  5. Looked like a ball of tape. Thanks, Karissa!
