Grace Tamlyn vacillates between compassion and ambivalence. She raises the question, can you care for someone even if they never care back?
 
The cat was never playful
But I was getting paid
A friend came over
The cat bit my friend
So she didn’t come over again

So I always cat sit in the summer
I did this for what felt like six years
Never spent much time with the cat
Till the day he died
Never spent much time with the cat
I was told to play with him
But he napped the whole time
 
I would try to pet him
And he would try to bite
Why are you trying to bite me?
I’m just being nice
Am I just a stranger in the house
 
So I always cat sit in the summer
I did this for what felt like six years
Never spent much time with the cat
Till the day he died
Never spent much time with the cat
I was told to play with him
But he napped the whole time
 
He sits in the house
All day by himself
I think he was angry
His mom wasn’t home
 
He would greet me,
With his meow
I’ve never been a cat person
He was really loud
I could be a cat person but I just I don’t want to.
 
So I always cat sit in the summer
I did this for what felt like six years
Never spent much time with the cat
Till the day he died
Never spent much time with the cat
I was told to play with him
But he napped the whole time
But he napped the whole time
