Thorn: My apartment’s all fixed up, so you can come home with me now! Yes, you can!
Larch: Typical cat. For a year we feed it, take care of it, play with it . . . but the second Thorn gets back, it cuddles up to him like we never existed.
Tansy: You remember that Tiernan isn’t an ordinary pet, right? He got her as a therapeutic aid.
Went through an emotional — and expensive — bonding ritual. That cat is, almost literally, his soulmate.
Larch: Yeah, sure . . . but we gave it Frisky’s Fancy Tuna Snacks!
