: "[Humans] pretend they're going to always be there for you, and then one day they pack up and move away and take their 'love' with them, and leave their declawed cat
to fend for herself! They... leave
her... Wondering... what she did wrong..."
- There's a Fridge Horror element to this as well (or Fridge Tear Jerk, if you prefer): Cats are often lost accidentally during a move, whether it's due to a feline freakout at all the upheaval, or just due to people running out of time to look for their wayward outdoor cat. So it's entirely possible that Mittens' family did love her very much and are just as heart-broken as she is at their separation, and she'll never know.
