Sometimes in life when you don't expect it you come to learn how truely special the animals in your life are.
It isn't that you don't love them and appreciate them but sometimes our furry companions go above and beyond to be a help and comfort to us.
I have learned over the last few months how truely special my Mothers two cats have been for her.
My Mother lived alone and had only the cats with her. My brothers family could not be with her as much as she needed. The cats became her constant companions .
They were with her every minute of the day sleeping on the chair with her. Sleeping in her bed with her. Following her from room to room and talking to her in kitty speak with purrs meows and snuggles and head butts.
Lilac would go to the computer with her and sit right at the keyboard. Little one would hang out in the little cubby right next to her chair.They would sleep right by her head in bed at night.
On the day my mother fell and needed help they summond the neighbors by crying as loud as they could as soon as they heard their car pull up. They didn't stop until the neighbors came and rescued mom. I know eventually they would have gone to check on Mom but the Kitties brought them over immediately.
When she went to the nursing home they waited patiently for her to come home… even though she never would.
When I took lilac to see her right before lilac came home with me she sat right on the bed with mom purring and trying to comfort her.
When they came to my house to live they waited patiently to go back to be her faithful companions.They did not give up their vigil until she passed away.
Some people don't think cats are loving or smart or kind or faithful. Some people don't think cats can be hero's but I know different because of these two and because of all they meant to my mother and all they did for her.
I will always be greatful for the kindness of kitties.
