Title: The Cat
A single woman’s beloved only son is killed at age 11, leaving her with nothing but the boy’s beloved pet cat. She retreats from the world in her grief, emerging to try to rescue the boy’s father from a deplorable living situation. Does she do this to prove she can still care for and nurture someone, or does part of her wish to eventually reunite with her former partner? The one constant she can depend on is the cat, whom she first resents because caring for the cat means she has to stay alive. It’s an interesting story.
