Nothing in my experience compares to the unique connection and bond we experience with our pets.
An unspoken mutual agreement is made up of respect, caring and unconditional love.
Sensitive to each others needs and there for each other through all seasons our pets show us how to nurture in completeness, how to relax and how to enjoy simple pleasures.
Whether it be teaching us to take time out and sit in a sunny spot, enjoy the fresh air and freedom of walking or running in a park or to simply enjoy a cool drink of water we can learn so much from our furry friends.
Our pets allow us to be all of who we are, without judgement. I know many people who have conversations with their pets and would not dream of talking this way to others for fear of ridicule.
All creatures great and small put us in touch with the child like part of ourselves, where we can be lovely dovey, soft and fluffy or airy fairy.
We find a place within ourselves, with their aid where we roll about in glee or simply find stillness and peace within. They teach us how to connect with our inner child, to laugh, to play or simply be.
Blessed are we who have the love of pets.
Whether your pet is sitting with you right now or is with you in spirit. One true thing is your love for each other will live on in your hearts forever.
This blog is in loving memory of my neighbours cat Mac, who had a fondness for rubbing his face on my plants, who always came to see me when I put rubbish out or worked in the garden. I’ve spent the last six years watching Mac grow up from a fluffy, scrawny kitten into a magnificent and beautiful young man.
I know I will miss him though I thank him for showing me unconditional love.
Pictures included are not of Mac though represent all our beautiful pets the world over.
