She wanted to rescue it, very badly. Jason is allergic to cats. He said no. She cried for a long time.
I (in my perfect Christian mother mode, of course) streamed a movie from Netflix and went across the street and got her some candy to distract her. It worked. But Gabriel wanted the candy I got for her instead of what I got for him. So he had just as big a fit about the candy, as she had about the cat. So, I ate his candy to self medicate. I am torn between guilt and going across the street to get some ice cream. For me.
Don't worry, I won't. I already am sick from the candy. :)
