"There are two means of refuge from the miseries of life: music and cats."
I love cats because I enjoy my home; and little by little, they become its visible soul.
"A cat has absolute emotional honesty: human beings, for one reason or another, may hide their feelings, but a cat does not."
Cat sitting = free models.....guffaw! This is one of my two new friends...a lap lover to be sure. I found her a few days ago sitting on a shelf in front of a window with the light streaming in from behind her. Of course I could not resist...those winsome features demanded that her visage be recorded for all time. She's a dear little kitty girl...pure love (and appetite) like so many kitties are, lol!
I've always been amazed by those I've heard say "all cats are pretty much alike"...or that they don't have much personality. Seems like it's always those that consider themselves only dog-lovers that I have heard make such pronouncements. I have to wonder in such cases about the perceptive filters that prevent people from seeing the beauty, individuality, and spirit which lies behind such elegant feline eyes. For myself I see the God in all creatures...and feel truly blessed in the vision. Perhaps there is some wisdom to be gained here by contemplating just how our bias with animals reflects on how we choose to see or not see the uniqueness of every human being as well? Cat, dog....male, female, black, white.....young, old....? Maybe the answer is to pray for the filters to fall away from our eyes and our hearts...and simply see with love and appreciation the uniqueness of all Life.
