A story we all should hear.   We had a similar situation with our wonderful Purr only he was only about 14.  He also took time to come around and when he did he was so loving, always wanting to be on your lap or lay with you.  He purred like a diesel truck.  Hugs

  1. Hi Scottie;
    You know, it’s just the way life is. When we are young and cute, everyone wants to be our friend and cuddle. When we get old, we get hairy where we don’t want to be, less hairy where we would prefer to be, not so pretty, not so active…. and loneliness sucks. I guess it’s true for all social critters. How absolutely beautiful that someone would care for this cat, show it love even when it couldn’t return the love yet.
    I watched a video somewhat recently and your post reminded me of it. It’s really sad and yet noble and triumphant at the same time: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pmARFs-w84c
    One thing I always wanted to do was to have therapy animals. You know, I’m not all that much a cat person, more a dog type. So, I wanted to have a couple big fluffy dogs that just love to be loved and just love to give love. Can you imagine how fantastic that would be?!!? Just to be able to see the way it would make people smile who are sad. The way it would give them someone to connect to, to hold, to love.

    Hugs

    • Wow. That is one impressive video. Oh how I wish there were far more of them around. Where I live there is not even good transportation for the elderly and disabled. The sad fact is many who don’t drive live lonely lives trapped in their homes. They have to depend on friends generosity to even get supplies and taken to the doctors.

      As for the dogs, love from anyone is great, love from the furry family members is a special gift. Now many hosptials and care places have care dogs come into do jsut as you say. We did at healthpark. They use different types and let the people play and pet them. Hugs
