A Bloody Smell
Our cat falls into an unexpected, heavy heat. Only four months old and already her biology motions her into a grown cat.

The vet wants us to wait one more month before spading her. We will have to wait for one more session of her prancing in the hallways, gesturing rudely. Suggestive waves from her tail curling, flickering, s-shaped.
