I kept thinking about this post, wondering how I’d get everyone to believe me when I told them that he put himself in this position—that I had nothing to do with it. I wasn’t sure people would believe me when I told them that this clumsy creature climbed on top of a wooden chest and inside a comforter without knocking a single stuffed animal onto the floor. But then I realized that anyone who knows anything about cats knows that we humans have little control over the cute and weird things they do. In fact, human intervention of any kind usually results in a blank stare or motionless protest. No, they don’t need us. Cats act weird all their own.
I have often wondered how those living without pets get through their day without the extra laughter. Aren’t they lonely? Don’t they yearn for someone to greet them at the end of the day? Who do they blame the strange noises on? Sure, they can wear black pants, leave food unattended, go on vacation easily, and walk to the refrigerator without tripping, but who cares about all that when faced with the joyful alternative?
Unconditional love is awesome.
