Do you remember the part in Anne of Green Gables where Matthew and Marilla are talking about Anne Shirley - and the stoic Marilla Cuthbert says
"God knew we needed her"?
You've never seen Anne of Green Gables?
|Although this photo makes it look like Anne is an amputee - she is not.
Please get off the computer now, and don't come back until you do!!!
I'm beginning to think the same thing about this stinking little kitten that I got on my birthday.
She's attached to me like glue. She sleeps with me, sits with me, follows me and tolerates my affection.
Jax - a most fabulous cat - that I love dearly - he doesn't tolerate my affection. He balks at my kisses, pulls away from my hugs, and doesn't sit or sleep with me.
Homeboy ain't no lap cat.

And that's ok - cause we are all different, and it doesn't make him any less of a spectacular cat - and his little funny quirks more than make up for his lack of affection. And he is a sight to behold, such a beautiful cat. I still hold out hope that as he ages, he'll take to my lap.
But this one...this one is what my heart needed. I really needed something to love and hug and kiss and squeeze..and.....
I wish I could get some better pictures - perhaps if I actually got the camera out, I could.
Ain't nobody got time for that.
The life lesson that this little gal has taught me already is this - the human heart apparently has no limit on the capacity to love. Just when you think you can't love anymore - along comes another pet, another friend, another child, and your heart is more than ready to love it - and there seems to be plenty of room. Where there's room in the heart - there's room in the house.
Unfortunately she's already to big too put in my brassiere like a baby chicken, but I'm thinking of making a little papoose so that I can carry her all day.
Not really - but it sure has crossed my mind.
Open your heart, you'll be amazed at how much love there is inside.
Live your life with reckless abandonment - free from the fear of rejection, hurt, ridicule or jealousy -
adopt a cat, have another baby, friend another person.
The only thing you can take with you - is what you give away.
