My Connie Boy

Convicts favorite place to sleep

To Convict

There once was a cat,

A tough old cat was he.

But when it came to love,

His was deeper than the sea.

If I walk out the door,

My tough cat will cry.

And if i leave him,

My tough cat will die.

Connie Boy, oh Connie Boy,

You own my heart.

How much do I love you?

It isn't even on the chart!

    0i think it is a combination of the love they give us and the fact that they are so very vulnerable to the pain humans cause them and the harm we can do them. when we become attached to them, our loved is doubled with protective feelings towards them. also we know they love us unconditionally, no ulterior motives. some people tell us they only love us so we will feed them, but they have never loved or been loved by an animal. animals who love a human will starve to death grieving for their dead owner. my moms cat quit eating when mom was in the hospital. it only makes sense that we should respond so strongly to such intense , pure love. i am glad you have pictures of your bandit sleeping with you. they are moments to treasure always. thank you for the prayers and for coming by to read and comment. have a wonderful day.

    Bandit used to sleep with me like that. I did not know that he use to do that, until I saw photos of him sleeping on me. I miss having him around to cuddle like that with me. Rest in peace my dear Bandit.

    I will pray for you and Connie boy and all of your kitties. Keep on giving them your love!

    It kills me at times at how animals can break your heart more than a human can break hearts!
