She sits on the arm of the chair, and she waits. She has spent many hours sitting on this chair, sharing it with her favorite human. They have watched TV together, chatted, and at times just sat there, both deep in thought. Her brothers run in and out, but she sits there quietly, sometimes asleep, sometimes not.
Her human has not been there for over a week. She has an idea they may never be back. In a way, this makes her sad. But she can always communicate with her human, even when they are not there. They will respond. Life goes on.
