It's a heartbreaking story: You leave your beautiful fur-baby every morning, crushing their little golden hearts, only to return home at the end of the day to find they are just as excited to see you as they were the first time you returned after the first time you left. That could explain why it's hard to leave even to go get some food. So don't.
