perspective and hugs to Kendi

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

    Lovely, lovely sentiments. So very, very thoughtful of you to share this insightful and heartfelt message.

    And yes, I truy believe the “sacred agreement made between two souls lives on”. We may leave our earth clothes, but our soul energies vibrate in a dimension that is eternal. And who knows what earth clohes we’ll select next time around and what lessons our soul’s cntract will teach us:-) 🙂

    It’s wonderful to see glimpses of Deva’s sparkke come back…and it will continue to do so!

    Love and light to all,

    Sally and Happy Hannah

      Sally – I could not agree with you more. I love that expression – earth clothes! We are indeed residing in a guesthouse (our body) and when I feel downhearted for whatever reason, I have to remind myself of this. This earthly experience is temporary, but spirit is forever!
      absolutely love and light to you and all
      Treacy and Deva

    Oh yes, this is a beautiful post, and absolutely true. I think I am a cat person partially for this reason – cat’s aren’t dopily in love with you no matter what (though I agree that that is sweet) – instead you really have to work at your cat-human relationship. Awww yes, and they always know when you are feeling blue. Always.

    Big love to Kendi – I know what she’s going through right now is extremely difficult. For me, the most important thing is that the time we have together is beautiful and full of love and honest relationships. And it seems like they had that.
