This isn’t about Valentine’s Day at all. It is about how much I love my cats.
I’m not going anywhere with this at all. I think it is important to recognize relationships with nonhumans, especially on the day when we fetishize heteronormative cissexual relationships that are built on consumption and the notion of equitable trade.
I think the love my cat Simone has for me is probably infinite. I am POSITIVE that the love that Reggie, my other cat, has for me knows no bounds.
Reggie will come and sit between my arms when I am using my desktop computer. He will sometimes bite my hand and just kind of sit there like “hey, you know I am here.”
Sometimes they will sit together, but rarely.
