I’ve been onto a heavy subject lately, so let’s lighten it up today by talking about one of my favorite subjects – my cats. Each one is so different in personality, but they all love me everyday no matter what, so that really makes me happy. When I’m sick, or having a bad day, they seem to be there to warm my heart and make me smile.
Sometimes they can be jealous of each other and demanding, but they always entertain me, meet me at the door, act silly, purr loudly, and give me those wonderful sandpaper kisses.
They all have found their place when it’s their time for ALL the love and attention.
Koki hangs out upstairs most of the time and stretches out on my desk. When I’m on my computer typing something critical is when she decides it’s time to cuddle. She starts by climbing all over me (and the keyboard if I’m not careful), pushing her little face into mine and purring and nuzzling me. I know I’m in trouble when she has those lover eyes.
Raven, my baby boy, is growing like a weed. He gets my attention all the time, if he wants it. He’s very attached to me. Raven always meets me at the door when I come home, even if I only go into the garage and back. He always has that thankful look on his little face that says, “Thank god, you didn’t leave me forever.” He really pulls at the old heartstrings.
He usually follows me all over the house because he’s curious about everything. This even includes the bathroom, but we’ll save that for later.
At dinnertime, Raven falls over at my feet in the kitchen and I have to be careful not to step on him while I’m cooking. He’ll sit at attention while I get his food ready and knows not to get on the kitchen counter, even though he’s able to now. I only told him no once. He’s such a good boy!
Now I want to share a video that brought tears to my eyes. No, it isn’t about my cats, although they are all rescues like the cat in the video. I urge everyone wanting a pet to adopt a cat or dog from his or her local animal shelter, or animal rescue group. These dear creatures are looking for a forever home.
