In the process he has several misunderstandings with Katie's cat. The other woman, Ashley, is a 20 something graduate student at the local college who is Jon's running buddy. Jon works out his feeling about the age difference between himself and Ashley as well as guilt over his wife's death. The ending is very realistic.
