I'm Sorry

There’s one sad truth in life I’ve found
While journeying east and west -
The only folks we really wound
Are those we love the best.
We flatter those we scarcely know,
We please the fleeting guest,
And deal full many a thoughtless blow
To those who love us best.
Ella Wheeler Wilcox

Look at that face. Cat is cross with me because I took her to the vet for a pedicure. I know she's proud of her long nails, which she often stretches out for viewing just so she can relish the fear and awe expressed by the lesser beings who feed her. I also know that she dislikes doctors. But I did the dastardly deed anyway and, being full of guilt and remorse, I began apologizing long before I had even packed her into her travel bag. Hours later I'm still apologizing but to no avail. Cat's in a mood and I'm guilty as charged. I'm sorry Cat. Please forgive me.
