Quote of the Week

Week: 17th-23rd April 2023

Game: Animal Crossing: New Horizons

Character: Raymond

Quote: “I can’t wait to move in and get this soon-to-be-legendary partnership going, Eleanor!”

Reason: During last week’s Quote of the Week, I mentioned that it had been a difficult week but didn’t explain why. One of my cats (we have two) had gotten sick, and with google at my fingertips, I had convinced myself that it was life threatening. At the start of this week, we rushed her to the vets for her early morning appointment. She had to have an operation. This particular operation was part of the operation my previous pet had before she died, so I was so worried. My cat is on the small side, and she’s very shy so I worry about her often. Josh and I were short on cash (emergency vet visit will do that), so we had to stay in this area that we were unfamiliar with for the whole 7 (nearly 8) hours. Now, I hate sharing too many personal details here (hence the vagueness last week), but this particular thing is so important to why this quote wins quote of the week. We stayed in a café for the majority of the time, and for over an hour, I was trying to get Raymond to live on our island. I’ve been playing Animal Crossing fairly often lately, but the fact that the best cat villager appears in our campsite while I was waiting for my baby to have this operation so that she is okay again… I just felt so emotional. I knew that I needed Raymond, that it was fate. It just felt right. Especially because the particular cat that was sick would definitely be a smug villager if she was in Animal Crossing. I honestly think Raymond showing up that day helped me a lot. The day dragged so much, and I was lucky enough to be preoccupied by this for over an hour. Yes, it was annoying because he kept trying to kick out Ione, Croque and Fang (my favourites), but it kept me going. I don’t do good when I have nothing to do, and this was all I had. It was just what I needed. I don’t think I would’ve worked as hard if it wasn’t Raymond. It felt like fate.
