“Do you have any pets? He asked.
Not even a cat?
I’m not sure I could care for a pet. I travel a lot.
But you could get a very little pet that wasn’t very hungry.
I knew all about those things that weren’t very hungry;
My life was full of them. I didn’t want any more weaklings who were activated by water and heat but had no waste and were so small that when they died, I buried them only with forgetfulness. If I was going to bring something new into my home, it would be a big starving thing.”
