It is hard to lose pets. Kidney failure can be painful for the animal.
So, how to make art out of all this? Well, I, for example, have kept all my dead pets in Tupperware containers for years. I am not quite sure why I do it: affectation of a vampiresque lifestyle? So I can make jewelry out of their bones? Because I am too attached to let go and if I bury them and lose my home (as indeed I did) I would not want to leave them?
Or is it, in fact, so I can use this disclosure in my comedy routine? I have come to understand that it is all those factors, but damn it, I am SURELY using this in my comedy routine. Do you think the audience will run screaming from the room?
