i started to label this event as an accident, but i'm not much inclined to believe in them. there are so many things that happen in life that we deem accidents that we really have a hand in without recognizing or admitting.
my son, the sweetest boy on earth, is responsible for our pets. i have warned him repeatedly to close the lid on the cat food container. two weeks ago he forgot. again. only this time, the consequences were far more horrible than either of us would have imagined.
athena, our tortoise shell cat, apparently jumped into the container, and when she did, the lid slammed down. we came home hours later to a suffocated cat. and alex knowing that he had unintentionally killed his own pet. life teaches some incredibly difficult lessons.
