my cat. fell out the window into the dark dark night. i lept up in my nightie and proweled the street barefoot with a flashlight, calling. there were noises of cats getting into squabbles. the cat did not appear.

he appeared in the morning, wedged between fence and retaining wall, returning the vocalizations of the dog and I. he has not been the same since. he does not want to go out. he does not purr. he wanders away from where the people are. his pride has been sorely injured. i make offerings of treats, which he accepts, and cuddles, such as he will stand for, but he is a dispirited cat and it is very sad.
