It has been a month of challenges for our sweet Sumatra. She has needed all of our attention.
She just got out of surgery this Monday and is showing signs of improvement. She has been a constant reminder of that will to live. She began grooming herself this morning such a good sign, and each hour that goes by a sweet glimpse of the incredible gift a feline can give its owner.
I have been I CAT NURSING, little time for anything else. We both have been sleeping on our double lounger, 24/7. I feel very fortunate in many ways she has chosen David and I as her keepers ...
She has depended on us, loved us through her most painful days and as a reward has shown signs of hope today. So today is a good day.
Some may think, she is just a cat, but that is not so. I have had lots of time to ponder this past month. Sumatra is about LIFE. She is about laughter, calmness, incredible trust, passion
and the ability to bounce back from the depths of despair.
She has taught me deep love and a deep compassion for a living soul.
As owners of pets, pets who choose us to give them the most comfortable life
we can provide, the bad and ugly are sometimes part of the package ..
Every day there has been a lesson in forgiveness, a lesson in priorities,
a lesson in love.
I so appreciate all the notes that found themselves in my inbox ...
"where are you ?, everything ok '
I am here, sitting beside my sweet ball of fur, smiling today,
we have another day to relish each others company ...
No regrets ..... see you soon ..
YOU matter ..
