It makes me feel old when you say stuff like that

Move along folks. Nothing to see here.

Remember when I said I had a backlog of Mulberry-related incidents to work through? Here’s another one.

The (then) Four-Year-Old, rubbing Mulberry, our seventeen-year-old cat just above the eyes: “You’ve lost the fur right here. And here.”

Pause, then in a voice of great discovery, The Four-Year-Old: “Mul, are you shedding by any chance?”

The (then) Four-Year-Old, on the drive home from putting Mulberry down: “Oh, Mommyo, Mulberry’s not here any more and she took up a lot of space in my heart.”


About Shala Howell

I write about wildly curious kids, rabbits who hunt dragons, and 1880s Boston. When I’m not scratching my head over pesky characters who refuse to do things how I want them done or dreaming of my next book (which will of course be much easier to write than the current one), I blog about life with a very curious Ten-Year-Old at, muse about books and the writing life at, or tweet about books, writing, science, & things that make me smile at @shalahowell.
