A letter from my Cat
Life hasn’t been easy lately. Between work stress, financial struggles, and relationship problems, I’ve felt like everything is going wrong. I’ve barely had the energy to get out of bed in the morning, much less face the day with a positive attitude. But my tabby cat Oscar could sense I needed a morale boost.
One night as I sat on the couch with my head in my hands, Oscar jumped up next to me and let out a soft meow. He rubbed his fuzzy cheek against mine and curled up in my lap, purring loudly.

With infinite affection, Oscar”
