I have studied many philosophers and many cats. The wisdom of cats is infinitely superior. ~ Hippolyte Taine
There are two means of refuge from the miseries of life: music and cats. ~ Albert Schweitzer
With the qualities of cleanliness, affection, patience, dignity, and courage that cats have, how many of us, I ask you, would be capable of becoming cats? ~ Fernand Mery
As I sat down to write this post my cats (two of them, anyhow) became my inspiration. I have said many times that I just cannot imagine life without cats in my home – they are such a gift… most of the time, anyhow. They are less of a gift when they want in and out of the bedroom throughout the night…. one of our cats catapults (no pun intended) herself towards the handle with a big “thud” in an attempt to open the door by herself.
However, today as I write this post, my cat is sitting at my feet starting at me adoringly, purring and pawing at my feet. I find that my cats are very loving animals who want to be around us, who love getting attention from us, and who always come when called. They love us and we adore them.
There is something very special about an animal sitting at your feet doing nothing but loving you. It is very humbling, and utterly amazing. Unconditional love in one of the highest senses.
Today, 101 days ’til 40, I am so thankful for my furry family members.
