The realization, after you haven’t seen your new kitten for a few weeks, that when you removed the back of the IKEA bookcase you may have sealed the poor kitty’s fate. As you step closer to the structure, you smell something horrid and understand that the curious cat crawled up into the bookcase and then fell into the space behind it. Trapped without food or water, and lacking the real big-cat lungs to call for help, the little white fuzzball dwindled in size and wasted away. The only remaining detritus is something that looks like a big dust bunny in the shape of a tiny cat.
