July 10-16, 2023. Days 503-509 of war.
This week my parents celebrated their 50th Wedding Anniversary!
They made some special food, got calls and texts from kids and grandkids from all over the world to celebrate and we toasted their marriage via video call! I drew them extra large on the occasion :)
In their news: another one of the neighborhood cats got a proper name. It is a large and happy cat that lives near the cafe and now that my parents are talking to it daily, people who work at the cafe are talking to my parents daily also.
Mom remembered another large cat that they knew in Kharkiv - it belonged to their friends who once decided to rescue a little fox cub. The cat and fox lived together for some time and then one day the fox pushed the cat out of the 4th floor balcony. Cat came home as if nothing happened! I tried to ask my parents what were their friends thinking about bringing home a fox. But they explained to me that it was little and needed care and then then they reminded me about stray dogs that I was trying to rescue as a kid and I stopped questioning an idea behind bringing a fox in the house :)
