Love Shows The Way

It's almost Easter, the time of renewal, new life and hope. We love this time of year at our house. The birds come back and everything is reborn to new life. So, ok, some things are a little behind this year because of the snow, but don't let that fool you for a second. For the renewal process goes on. A couple of good furiends recently became Angels and will be celebrating their first Holiday in the presence of the Creator. I think of Jezebel, who by the way, is also having her first birthday at the Bridge today. And then there are some furiends who are sick, and I think quickly of Pansy. She is sweet sixteen and ill. Pansy is much loved and adored by her mom, who brought her home when she was about nine years old. Lots of my furiends are going through things right now, but the renewal process goes on and so does love. With that, I want to share a couple of items I came across last night: These are powerful and so inspiring.

I wanted to share the story of my cat, Montgomery who came to live with us about 12 years ago.
I found out about Monty from a friend who sent me an email because he had been diagnosed with FeLV and at the time I took in FeLV+ cats from around the country. Monty had also been shot in the face as a kitten for sleeping on the bed and then was turned out into the cold during the Michigan winter. A local rescue found out about Monty about a month later and talked the owner into surrendering him to them for medical care since he had received none in the month since he was shot. His face was filled with infection and he tested positive for feline leukemia. Since he was such a fighter and had endured so much the rescue decided not to have him PTS and instead had his injuries treated. Treatment meant removing most of his lower teeth and about 70% of his lower jaw. Once I found out about Monty I flew to Grand Rapids michigan to bring him to his forever home here in Florida where he has lived ever since. He has adjusted well to his disability. He is a slow eater and quite messy, but he gets the job done. ;o)) His tongue has no base to rest on so it hangs out (which I find over the top cute). And his favorite part of the day is mornings because he gets a little bowl of half and half everyday. A small reward for what he's been through and for all the happiness and joy he has brought to me. I'm sooo glad I got that email so many years ago, Monty. Hugs and kitty kisses, Mom

Why Should We Love Animals? (Mother Theresa)

Because they give everything asking for nothing back…
Because they are defenseless amid men's weapons and power…
Because they are eternal children…because they don't know hate…or war…because they don't know about money and only seek the protection of a shelter…
Because they explain themselves without words, because their eyes are as pure as their souls…
Because they don't know about envy or grudges, because forgiveness comes natural to them…
Because they love with loyalty and truthfulness…
Because they recognize and appreciate respect…
Because they don't buy love, they just expect it…
Because they are our companions, eternal friends that never betray…
And because they are alive. Because of this and a thousand other reasons they deserve our love!
If we learn to love them like they deserve, for being creatures that feel, suffer and need us, we will be closer to God".
~Mother Teresa

Happy Blessed Easter to alla my wonnerfur furiends

What a lovely poem. My answer to the question of "who would you ever like to meet?" is Mother Theresa. Monty is a very lucky boy and so adorable. I hope that the people that hurt him have their kharma some day. I know I always look at spring as a time to start fresh. Hugs 7 Easter blessings to you all, and an extra scritch for Monty.
