Life without…

I pose to you this simple question: Is your life enriched by a pet?

For myself and family, there has been virtually no days of our collective lives in which a cat has not be a part of.

I can’t express how having a cat in my life makes me feel; though I can assure you the day a cat has left us, it hurts.    Some of the cats were part of our lives for barely a few years, others several years.    Our love of cats led us to become foster carers, where the mutual enrichment was enjoyed by ourselves and the cats we were caring for.

Each and everyone has had such a distinct and unique personality.   They very quickly cease being a pet and become a member of the family.    For the fosters, seeing them leave to go to their forever homes were very emotional times in our house.

You don’t quite realize how much they affect your life, until they aren’t there anymore.

In no particular order here’s to Allana, Anastasia, Sam, George, Harley, Holly, Beth, Jonah, Jenko, Jude, Kira, Molly, Oakley and Shelley.


One thought on “Life without…

  1. Yes, life is enriched by pets. Even cats, who by most accounts couldn’t care about anything other than food and sleep, know when you are sick, stressed, worried, scared, nervous, anxious, or many other feelings and will come up to you and try to help you get over those stages. Pets also help breed a sense of accomplishment and fulfillment, especially if you get a very very young kitten and watch it grow and mature into a loving happy health cat.
