I've written before that our Stevie is deaf. Yet when he's being petted he will issue cries, a sound unlike anything ever heard coming from a cat before. What is he trying to say? What is the emotion that's locked inside him?
I know his frustration; to have music in your soul and no means to bring it forward to share, to see the world as one great canvas with no means to hold it beyond that moment. So we take photographs and hope for the best, our own plaintive cry coming from a deaf cat.
