Purrs Everlasting

Listen up, my kitty loved ones:

This post today is all about how much humans really need us.

I know we're pretty much just bundles of love anyway, good at eating, snoozing, wide-eyed innocence, and some of us are amazingly good at having things just the way we like 'em

and we have so much to teach humans about how to have fun.

We say what we want with a simple meow and most of all, we are really sensitive to sadness and tears, helping just by being there.

That's why humans love us so much. There's a joy we share underneath our whiskers and a concern we show when hearts are broken.

What's more--

There's something we have that humans don't, and they need it desperately. It works its magic and comforts the soul, something Tinker and I were talking about just the other day.


Humans can't purr.


They can't.

I couldn't believe the Big Puss didn't know that, the big dummy.

But, we can.

And that is the real gift we give those we love.

We share the world together
We share our souls apart
There's always caring
Always sharing
Whispers heart to heart

Purrs and love,
Tom, Mom Julie, Tinker, Mitty and Anastasia



What a wonderful and insightful post.

We will miss Jan a lot.

A beautiful post. We are sad beyond belief that Jan has gone, but today we will celebrate her love of life and her beautiful smile. xxx

Jan's Funny Farm said...

Lovely message and so true. We think we'll go purr for Jan now and make the dogs jealous.

We're sure Sabrina, Sam & Simon are a comfort to Jan's husband.

Shaggy has the keenest sense of when I need to be comforted. He's my giant lap cat with a giant heart and purr to match! -Mom Lynne

That was such a lovely post. I'm still sick at heart at Jan's passing, even though I only followed her blog and didn't "know" her. But as someone who's been cosy friends with depression for most of her life, it just makes me ache with sadness that this illness claimed a wonderful soul.

Peace and Blessings to her husband, family and friends.

Beautiful post! A kitty's purr is one of the most magnificent sounds in the Universe, Tom. So very comforting and loving. And i can't imagine a world without you felines in it. We have four here who we belong to. My husband and i love them with our whole beings. And we know they love us the same! Happy Christmas Season Tom, Julie, Tinker, Mitty and Anastasia! Love you.
