I just had to share this with you! Last night I had the most specialest wonderfulest neatest amazingest cuddle and peaceful time with our Cleo Kitty!
Ever since her diagnosis of cancer in December 2011 she has been extra lovey. Actually, I think all three of us have become more lovey with each other and really pulled together as a family. And Cleo Kitty is doing really well and very much alive and very much kicking these days! She’s not only extra spunky but she is EXTRA affectionate most of the time and last night was a breathtaking example of our bonding.
She got on the table I was typing at and kept walking over my arms and in the way (OF COURSE!) trying to get my attention. She has a habit of doing this and sometimes I’ve put my arms around her and held her and she’s put up with it but last night she not only let me hold her but she backed up into me, settled her butt on my arm and snuggled into me. First there were no purrs but then they started too!!!
I lifted my arm away to let her know she was free if she wanted to be and she stayed right there. It was one of the most beautiful experiences I have ever had EVER!!! Sooooo peaceful. This Kitty knows how to love and she teaches me more and more!
Sooooo, as usual during times with Cleo I reached for my phone (to try to get some pics and at least share with Corey) and now that I have a nice fancy one, I could turn the camera so it was facing me (not as good quality but who cares when you can catch THE moment). I didn’t care that my hair wasn’t done “right” or that I didn’t look that good. This was about Cleo and I and capturing our time together if possible. What came out of it is a very special photo shoot that brings me to tears every time I look at it. I had no idea what her facial expression was and what touches me even more is how much love she is showing so willingly on her face and usually she looks a bit irritated at me for taking pictures. This was not the case. I wanted to share these special Moments of Peace with you all because our little loved ones with fur instead of hair have so much to teach us and soooo much love to share. I love her soooo much!
Thank you Cleo Kitty for the Honor of being that close to you!!! You are truly very very special!
