When you excitedly determine that you will have a pet in your life, you love them, care for them, coddle them – and in return you receive that incomparable love. They make us feel better, inspire us, and simply give us harmony and balance to all the chaos in our daily lives.
Then the time comes, one day, when they must move on from us and it is hard to separate from all the happy moments – like this morning, when I expected to see him standing next to me while washing dishes – patiently waiting for treats. But we will always have the memories that will continue to give us life. And for me…well, it’s inspiration. To write. To live, to continue on a path of joy.
I’m convinced that in it’s most simplest way, our animals are meant to keep us human.
Goodbye Mr. Dugis Ant-ny. We will miss you always and no such kitten will ever replace you.
