Catatonia

Early in the morning, the cat wakes dreaming. His despairing wails tell us what he has learnt: that Eden is gone, and it is not his fault. We know who he blames.

So why does the cat remain near humans?

Because he lives in hope that we will be redeemed, and that, as always, he will be able to sneak in through the door we left open behind us on our return.

Or perhaps, because God told the first cat to make sure it would happen.
