I have two of the most people loving cats I’ve ever met. They are brothers who are as loving to each other as they are to us. Usually when someone thinks cats, they tend to think of ones that have their own agenda. Well, mine do too, but it includes being next to us, most of the time.
One of the cats is a small 13lbs and loves to ride on his dad’s shoulders. You heard me right, he will stand and meow at my other half until he leans down and lets him on his shoulders. Such a funny sight.
The other weighs in at about 20 lbs and he is the one who always wants to be next to me. At times he will flop down on me and lay on his back to get his coobies (cat boobies) rubbed. As I sit here writing he is actually resting his head on my arm and touching my leg with his paws. So cute, he reminds me of an infant.
I tell you all this because I am not sure I ever thought how therapeutic these animals are to my life. When I have a rough day at work, I can come home and they are there just wanting to be loved. Not asking for things (well at dinner time they sit and meow for the food but hey, they have to keep up their girlish figures). The unconditional love they give is awesome. Petting them and nurturing them really takes the stress out of my body. I guess my advice is if you don’t have an animal in your life and you always wanted one, do it. You won’t regret it.
