Lost Cat

November 20, 2018


“Hi. Yeah. Um. I’m calling about the lost cat posters that I’ve seen around the neighborhood.”

Oh, yes! Did you find her? Did you find Toby?

“No. Sorry. I was wondering if you had.”


“I was just calling to see if you found your cat. But, it sounds like you haven’t.”

No. I haven’t. Is this some kind of joke?


Why would you call unless you’d found the cat?

“I dunno. I’d seen them around for a few weeks and I guess I just wanted…”

Wanted what?

“Closure, I guess.”


“Sorry to both-”


“...bother you.”
