You can give a man a fish and THEN teach him to fish, you know. And it's a lot easier to learn how to fish when you're not starving.

Its also Lune's rehoming day and I'm stressed out and miserable on top of it. He's going to be happier and healthier there, I know it, but I'm gonna miss him so much

The following paragraph strongly suggests to me that it's singular about the narrator, but english does benefit from the ambiguity there I think and idk if you'd get to maintain both the natural segue and the potential ambiguity in translation
