SCENE ZONE

Every day, Cloie and John Marc (‘Em’) Binos would stop by the terminal in their subdivision and feed the community cats and dogs. At home, Em would oversee the cleaning of their animal companions’ living spaces and the scooping of clumps from their litter boxes. This was their daily routine for the past three years, until Cloie lost her job. At night, one of their Cats , Terry, would sleep beside Em. Sometimes, the Cat would sleep on top of Em’s chest, because that was how close they were. This was how Cloie described the relationship between Terry the Cat and her brother who had recently passed away.
