There are few things as exciting as dawn arriving in a home with new life in it. Every parent knows the sensation of waking up to the sound of a newborn’s cry, or a little before it in anticipation. It is a sunrise that shines through any storm. It is a song that plays through any silence. It is the feeling that every day is a holiday, like falling in love with someone new. Because that is exactly what is happening.
This is my roundabout way of saying I have a new cat. I woke up this morning with a song going through my head that was recorded by an artist who coincidentally has the name of my new cat: Oliver.
