Rest In Peace

Time passes on now.

Love lingers from real shared joys.

I'm glad you were here.


Recently some other animal took a bite out of Mau-Mau, our cat of 21 years.

It being winter here in the Rockies, and litter boxes being customarily used when the outdoors is featuring inclement weather, keeping our cat inside to recover seemed doable.

We hadn't counted on Mau-Mau being so attracted to the final scab that it opened up again. Mankind also has a strong penchant for opening up old wounds, often leading to death.

Now we start the process again. Hoping to sustain the companionship we hold so dear.

It is said that, "Nothing lasts forever."

That is simply wrong. Love lasts forever.

If you have lost a treasured pet, you know that is true.

It is true for all our loves, past, present, and future.

The other saying is true also: "Love makes the world go 'round."

God gives His purest love, meant for us to share with all. At times we experience a shared love with our pets, even whole families loving one pet, and a pet that loves us all.

Could it ever be, when we might love each other with the love God means for us to share?

"Love makes the world go 'round."

Let's make pets of each other; truly caring for each other as we have been known to care for our most treasured pets.

If we can do that, we can all Rest In Peace.

      Thanks Denise. Mau-Mau has recovered and lives on, mostly as an indoor cat now for his own good. The interloper regularly appears and expresses its thanks with low mumblings and its idea of companionship.

      Truly inspired. Mau-Mau would be so proud to be part of this spiritual lesson on love! I'm sorry for your loss but happy for your experience of love.

      Blessings,

      Denise

      While the healing continued, the possible culprit was heard crying for help, trapped in the driveway hedge by rosebush thorns that hurt whichever way he moved. Called to the rescue, MNJ lifted two rose branches with a stick and pulled him free. Now he probably wants to be adopted!

      Oh how awful! I do hope your precious little friend gets better. What would we do without them?

      Such a precious little cat and your photo reminded me of our own cat who curls up in this way. The love we have for our animals never dies and if only we could care for each other in this way, regardless of our differences, then this world would be a better place. A beautiful tribute.

      I'm so sorry, Demas. I hope your precious Mau-Mau survives her ordeal. You are so fortunate to have her. We've never had a cat to live that long. Our oldest one lived to be 19 1/2. The love these darling animals give us is priceless. You linked it to human love for each other very well.
