Tonight as I write this post, I am thinking about Kendi and Salem. The relationship between a cat and a human is often underestimated, played down, or misunderstood. As an animal person, I have had wonderful relationships with cats, dogs and other beautiful creatures.
The relationship with a cat though is unique, because it is 100% unconditional. We all know that we can’t make a cat do anything it doesn’t really want to do, and this is why any affection, bonding or love that the cat shows towards it’s human is offered in the purest form. Cats seem to have an uncanny sixth sense – they know when we are feeling sick or sad, frustrated, happy or excited. Our moods affect them, and vice versa.
Death is an inevitable part of this life. And, if you are inclined to believe in an after-life or reincarnation, there is comfort in knowing that relationship never ends. The sacred agreement that has been made between two souls lives on.
So tonight, I am grateful that Deva is sitting next to me snoozing. I am grateful when she is yowling (even though I don’t want her to be in pain, I know this will pass). I am grateful to have met so many wonderful people who ‘get it’ and grateful for the love and loss that makes this life what it is.
big love to Kendi
