My hasty decision to fly a desperate, love- and food-starved Theo home from rural Indiana after only knowing him for a few days wasn't one of those decisions. Each day Theo is in my life, I rejoice knowing I made an excellent choice. He's such a wonderful cat and a great delight in my world.
Every cat is different and each have their little rituals. One of the many things I love about Theo is our morning routine. After my morning bath, as I am getting dressed for the day, Theo silently sneaks up the stairs. With one instant burst of energy he flies around the corner of the stairs, springboards from the corner of the bed right onto my left shoulder. He's so fast, that by the time I figure out what's going on all I see is a flying Theo coming right at me! I can't help but laugh and delight in his silly and loving nature.
Once he's secure on my shoulder, he proceeds to melt into me as he soaks up the loves, usually to the point of drooling! He so loves doing this and I absolutely love sharing this precious moment with him. It's such a delightful way to start each day. It's often in this moment that I give thanks for the gift of sharing my life with the amazing Theo.
I look at all of my cats the same way....all of them are rescues in one way or another.
I just LOVE that picture of Theo in your arms. He looks so comfy and I just know he feels safe & secure. Yeah! for Theo!!!ReplyDelete
Awwww - sometimes we don't know we are doing the right thing and it ends up being WONDERFUL!!! Love that morning routine!ReplyDelete
This just touched my heart! How sweet. I know i feel that way about my Charlie! He was the best decision I have made in a long time. Theo found you! Hugs, LindaReplyDelete
All our cats are rescues..as one of them..a true feral, on the day of rescue screamed at the top of his voice as he bit and clawed through drywall in his panicked attempts to escape, I wondered what the h#ll we had done. When he purrs and rolls over for a belly rub now or gently kisses my nose, I know it was the best descision.ReplyDelete
Sweet Theo! I love his snagglepuss face.ReplyDelete
We're so happy your "hasty" decision turned out so perfect for both you and Theo. Bless.ReplyDelete

I've never read a lovelier expression of why we who just love cats, love cats. You are lucky to have each other.ReplyDelete
That's a wonderful thing you did for Theo. He's a beautiful cat. The more I read cat blogs, the more proud I am to be in such good company.ReplyDelete
