I kept my distance from the supermarket after that. The scene was just too traumatizing for my tender heart.
Well, I went back to the supermarket Friday. The cat had run out of food and was threatening my life. I thought that enough time had passed. I thought I'd be safe. I thought I had distanced myself in such a manner that no further emotional damage could be wrought.
I couldn't have been more wrong.
Oh, the humanity!
