“With the qualities of cleanliness, affection, patience, dignity, and courage that cats have, how many of us, I ask you, would be capable of becoming cats?”
– Fernand Mery
It is a remarkable thing, how a cat can be so independent and loving, an animal who knows from experience that survival is of the utmost importance and food being the key to healthy life. That of course the unspoken truth, yet to be sure today, as I write this our cat pictured here did something surprising and perhaps cute.
You see she spends more time in retirement sleeping but she also can be found exploring a closet or resting under covers. Partly because in the closet is her litter box, that is of course not the only thing that is in that closet. There is also her dry food, that is usually closed or at least so I thought. The result was the next time I check on her she has her head in the food bag and chowing down, even though her food bowl had some food in it she wanted the fresh stuff straight from the bag. Instead of waiting she just went for it. The funny thing was this is the first time I have seen her do that. Otherwise I probably would have stopped it earlier. At the very least it was good to laugh and to offer the same love that she offers without condition by smiling and giving her a hug. Though I think I put a damper on her raiding of the food bag by closing it up. She still is a feline of surprises, as loving a cat as a person can be so fortunate to have in their life.
