So in my attempt to create a hyberbolic goodbye to Chloe, the cat I attempted to adopt from Charissa, I made it unmistakable that she’s actually dead.
But, like Paul McCartney, Warwick Davis, Mark-Paul Gosselaar and Harrison Ford, Chloe the cat is alive and well at her original home. The video I made was so beautiful and somber that it seemed like one of those funeral montages, and so I presented it as such, and without any irony.
And then people started consoling me for my loss, so I thought I’d better set the record straight.
I did, however, tell my other cat Knives that Chloe is dead. They didn’t get along and I thought it might make her happy.
She’s alive. Back at Charissa’s house. Not dead.
