Last night, before Julia went to sleep, I asked where the cat was because I couldn't feel him on my side of the bed. Julia told me he was near her knees and then told me that she loved her cat and dog. She was so sincere. When we were walking the dog on Sunday, Julia stopped and pet the cats that the corner neighbor allows outside on leaches. She talked to them. This is such a change from the little girl who was afraid of animals and who would have liked to hurt Latkah when she first came home.
