Oh, those Fluffies…
Love of my life…that was the original title of the blog post but then I realized that I have a few of those and it didn’t seem appropriate to post just about one of them. So, we ended up with “Oh, those Fluffies”.
I was going through my wordpress reader and got inspired by a post from Sheri on her 27 year journey with her cat Morti. It is amazing when you have a pet around for so long. The connection you have with it is something you can’t even describe.
We got Alex when she was 5 years old and she turned out to be the coolest cat ever. You would think that you can’t teach an old dog new tricks. Guess what! It was a cat and, yes, we taught her new tricks.
She sits, she rolls over, she listens to “no”, she fetches (on her own terms), she comes when you call her, and she tells you what’s on her mind.
This little fluffy taught me about life more than interaction with humans. When I look back at our life together and lessons that we both learned, I am in awe of how amazing it has been.
– Never give up and be persistent
– New things in your life can be scary but once you think about it, they bring new experiences and new excitement
– Don’t let life’s beating keep you down. Get up, shake it off and continue like nothing has happened
– Always live with a conviction that you rule the world
– Hiss at changes, look straight them in the face, lift your tail high, and stand your ground
– Don’t be afraid to trust people you love and let go of control
– When you trip in your own litter box that’s bigger than life and come out with your head covered in litter, behave like it is a new trend and like you have no clue what happened (see the photo)
– When something amazing comes into your life, drop everything you do and enjoy it like those are last moments of your life
– When you are happy, make sure everyone knows it and wants it too
– Even when you are not feeling well, show love to those who matter
– Be optimistic in situation that you know are hopeless
– Change things and make everyone else guess what the hell you are up to now
– When somebody has decided that they know you, boxed you in their little world of labels, do something that is opposite to what is expected of you.
– Never allow somebody to define who you are according to their view of the world
I could go on and on and brag about the fact that I have the most amazing cat in the world but I also know that we all have either the most amazing cat or dog or mouse or snake or neighbor or partner.
What matters is that we open up our hearts and never stop learning from each other.
