I decided to put my favorite of this Spring's pictures I have taken as my header this time. If anyone noticed, that Wirty Pl. is referring to another furred one in my past. Her name was Robin but the kids, for reasons known only to them called her Wirty. Go figure. Looks like a sunny day today. Yesterday was horrifically windy. Cold damp and windy I might add. There was a cold front coming through. I will take the camera with me when I head out to get a few things later. Someone said it is National Pet Parents Day. There are pet owners and there are pet parents. I used to smile a little when I saw pet parents but as I have become one these past 25 years, I no longer smile at it. Others sometimes don't see why we pet parents love our pets so much that it shows. It's because they love US so much that it shows. Simple as that. I have a cat but the demonstrable love she shows me tells me our love and care of her is appreciated and returned. Who else here will be my nursie when something goes wrong? Who else but her will enfold my wrist in her front paws and lay her head in the palm of my hand to sleep? That's trust. And that's love. Too many examples to write here so I won't. I will close with the thought that it amazes me that people assume cats don't show love. Um..I think those who say that never had one or never treated them right. xox
