Just before Christmas I went up to the Travesia for a few days and besides being gifted with good food and coffee, I was also given a kitten from my friend Mari. Her neighbor kids referred to the kitten as “El Mas Feo” (The Ugliest), but I think he’s cute. He’s quite a handful though. He wakes me up a few times in the night trying to get on the bed, cries when the sun comes up because he’s hungry, and cries whenever he’s not eating, sleeping or playing because he wants me to hold him. I never know a little kitten would require so much attention.…. I can’t imagine how much attention a baby requires. I know this sounds silly but I have a lot more respect for moms.
