From yesterday....Mommy couldn't post it because of 'fleas'.
Today.... I sit by my window...it's open and screened. After awhile I move to the back of the loveseat, and I begin the low rumble of a purr....and with Mommy this morning, watch two ground hogs in two different states emerge from their homes...one says we will have an early spring....the other that we will have 6 more weeks of winter....
And I know that coming in from the cold means this freedom to Be Cat in the best of ways...to imitate Bast as she is curled in statue form on the small altar, her purr audible only to my ears...
And I look at another Catster Profile of a small orange Tabby with eyes that could have been mine so long ago...a fur still between worlds, not quite in from the cold, but not fending for himself, either.
And I stretch out a paw across the distance, and I say 'welcome' Pumpkin Latte, for you remind me of myself when young, wanting to be loved, and cautious at the time time. I remember meeting Daddy, wanting so to trust, to believe that someone could love me and want to take care of me, and at the same time wondering when this would end.
But as I sit here, in a warm home, with food before me at meal time, and I look curiously at the small, furry form of the BUB as she plays, I know that I am lucky. I am Home, with my people, with my Furs, and indeed within myself.
Here, as I write, I have found friends and met others who have come in from the cold, who have reached out a paw, and who have rumbled purrs in welcome. I have felt the berift feeling as a good friend bounds off to the bridge, to run behind sometimes, only to have them stop at the threshold, touch noses to mine and say 'Someday, Ruffy, you'll know why. Til then, tell my folks I send love and will guard and guide them and send them miracles...'
And we are Miracles ourselves, warm coats, lovely eyes, soothing purrs, zany antics.
I welcome you, new ones, young ones, Elderwise...and you, innocent fur with the widest eyes and most wonderous expression...Pumpkin Latte. For here, the road changes, and you...dear little cat, no longer walk alone.
Love, light and many purrs...
May your days ahead be filled with good things...
