Dearest little Emmylou, aren't you just the most adorable kitten! Such a pretty little grey tabby with touches of orange that match your eyes.. and so sweet, and such fun to have around. Isn't that nice that your sister was kept with you too! The two of you can entertain each other, and your purrrrsons, for hours, wrestling and chasing the red laser light and digging out q-tip toys from the trash.
Congratulations, darling Emmylou, on being selected today's Cat of the Day! We hope that you and your sister and your purrrsons are all enjoying a wonderful day of celebration, full of fun and lovies and games and your favorite treats, especially lots of tuna.
I meant," said Ipslore bitterly, "what is there in this world that truly makes living worthwhile?"
Death thought about it.
"Cats," he said eventually. "Cats are nice."
