"When I first moved to the city, there was a cat in my cousin’s building as well. I don’t know what happened, but the landlord filled the building with tenants and moved out, leaving the grey cat behind. I asked her once why the landlord left it behind, and she said that cats are more attached to places than to people. And that was why cats are so often found in abandoned houses."
—I’ll Be Right There – Kyungsook Shin, translated by Sora Kim-Russel (via kyngusoo)
