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.”
