The effect what my cat companions to me, words cannot describe it. There is scientific evidence that petting animals reduce blood pressure. As for me, it provides a medicinal nature that drugs cannot.
I know I would not do without my cats. In my darkest days, they make me smile. They need me. Knowing that I am needed, I am forced to get out of bed to provide their needs. The companionship I received from them is filled with joy as I watch them do their crazy antics and unconditional love I receive. They are life savers. They rescue me from the brink of going down the abyss. They don’t judge me for my mental illness.
Cats are better pets than dogs.
I am lucky to have Maurice and Lucy in my life for the following reasons.
- Caregiver (they can sense when I am feeling sick and tolerates my moods)
- Gift giver (they bring bugs inside the apartment and leave it at my feet)
- Personal trainer (they make me run after them when it’s bath time)
- Inspector (they inspect all the bags I bring home)
- Cuddle buddy (Lucy snuggles with me at bedtime)
- Head warmer (they plunk their warm bodies on the top of my head when I’m asleep)
- Alarm clock (they wake me up in the dot at 5am wanting breakfast)
- Dishwasher (they lick their plates clean ready for the next meal)
- Ghost whisperers (they stare into space with ears all perk up)
- Playmate (they jump quickly under the sheet when I change the bedding)
- Masseur (they massage my back or chest)
- Bath assistant (Lucy licks my toes clean and arms and face and …)
- Blog buddy (Maurice sits on the keyboard and starts typing the comments azdvghionmlxqw)
I don’t mind them ruling my life. I’m tired of being a ruler.
