If only I could hold you again.

Cats never lose the drive to get up and try again, no matter how many times they fall. They have a resilient attitude, and they probably know better than we do that making a few mistakes doesn’t rule out the possibility of reaching the long-term success you desire. There’s a reason they have nine lives.

I had my baby “meow”. I’d love to share my joyous tale about how our youngest family member became a member of our family! Every pet has a unique tale, and our sweet “meow” is no exception. During the winter 2018, in my balcony a cute cat came for the sunlight of course. She had given birth to her baby earlier as well. She used to sleep and sun bath in our balcony. Sometimes she also used to demand for food and I loved to feed her. Few months later she suddenly stopped coming to my house. I kept some chicken where she used to sleep before going to college. But after I came back, I knew that she didn’t come. After 20days she came back to my house and I could see her front limb injured.

Oh God, humans are real monster.

I took her inside the room. She was hungry. I brought cat food for her. It was the day I was satisfied the most.

To feed a needy should not be a novel task instead should be normal as breathing.

Then she regularly to come to our house. During December, she felt so cold that she came to my bed to sleep. Earlier she only came to eat but now, I know she chose me, she loved me. From that day after coming from college she was the first whom I search for. Moreover, my parents and brother too got attached to her. Every time I think of my “meow”, I get a nice feeling in my heart.

Why?

It’s a joy to be with a cat! It appears to be reciprocal. I can’t imagine going a day without my “meow”. Neither do she, nor do I.

Because we’re so intertwined. It’s a mystical phenomenon. It’s difficult to put into words. Beyond the realm of possibility. Beyond the realm of reason.I feel spiritually linked while I’m holding her. She extended out when I begin scratching her backs, indicating that she is enjoying it. This is a good sign that I should keep going.She stared at me with her enigmatic eyes. Her stares were difficult to decipher. She did, however, tell me a lot of stuff. She let a flood of emotions out. From me to them and back again. She didn’t have to be able to communicate. Those small meows are understandable to me. Those sighs, those sighs, those sighs, those Even those inconspicuous smiles. And it’s all due of our exceptional friendship. She added happiness to our family.

When I got my first job, she was my stress relief therapy. She begin to fuse her body with mine the moment I touch her, warning me not to let go. When I played with her, the deep joy she brought me is unrivaled. Cats may not be as energetic as dogs, yet their gentleness warms my heart. She could be distant at times. Her snobbish demeanor amused me. Especially when she asked for something and I refused to give it to her. I return the stare. “No,” I tell her. Nonetheless, her gaze was drawn to my soul. It’s impossible to say “no” for an extended period of time. She was aware when I was not feeling well. She took a seat next to me. She kept her distance from me and remain silent. Cats are attempting to cure the sickness. They are caregivers and sharers.

Worst day of my life

After that, there was the dreadful month of 2020. My most cherished children died in lockdown of the year 2020. I was heartbroken. My sadness was palpable. It was unprocessed. It was excruciating.

If only I could hold you again.

If only I could hold you again.

I began to doubt the concept of kindness and life’s fairness. What makes the cosmos so cruel?

How can humans cope with sadness that strikes unexpectedly? Is it possible that our lives will never be the same?

Is it possible to heal from the overwhelming sentiments of sadness and reclaim the joyful feelings of unconditional love?

How is it possible that the source of my delight is now the source of my grief?

How is it possible that the reason for my existence has now become the cause of my extinction?

You could think I’m exaggerating. It’s just a cat, a pet, a living creature. You can always swap out one for another.

But believe me when I say that’s easier said than done. Having a pet is like having a small human for those of us who are animal lovers and live alone. Many individuals will be perplexed by this. It could be difficult to grasp. It’s difficult to accept. But, in many cases, our animals can take the place of humans for comfort and reassurance.But, hey, that’s life. The circle of life progresses in this manner. It just goes on and on. It is up to us to accept the situation and go on. We must release at some point. To relinquish control. Otherwise, we may become engrossed in the pain of loss.

Although the path to recovery is difficult, there is no other way to avoid it. After that dreadful loss, I even promised myself that I would never get another cat. I found myself hugging two fur babies again four months later. They’ve been my medicine as I’ve worked my way back to full health.

I’ve returned to my former self. Someone who enjoys nuzzling cats. That individual who enjoys spending time with cats. That individual who considers cats to be members of their family.That’s how the circle of life works, I just understood. Some of us lose, while others gain. We love and we injure each other. We experience discomfort, but we eventually find relief.I came to the realization that I needed to accept life as it is.

Dogs are even more like us!

The dog is a domesticated descendant of the wolf. The dog derived from an ancient, extinct wolf, and the modern grey wolf is the dog’s nearest living relative. The dog was the first species to be domesticated, by hunter–gatherers over 15,000 years ago, before the development of agriculture.Their long association with humans has led dogs to be uniquely adapted to human behavior,leading to a large number of domestic individuals and the ability to thrive on a starch-rich diet that would be inadequate for other canids.Labrador retrievers have claimed the top spot as America’s most beloved breed.Most pet owners are clear about the immediate joys that come with sharing their lives with companion animals. However, many of us remain unaware of the physical and mental health benefits that can also accompany the pleasure of snuggling up to a furry friend. It’s only recently that studies have begun to scientifically explore the benefits of the human-animal bond.Pets have evolved to become acutely attuned to humans and our behavior and emotions. Dogs, for example, are able to understand many of the words we use, but they’re even better at interpreting our tone of voice, body language, and gestures. And like any good human friend, a loyal dog will look into your eyes to gauge your emotional state and try to understand what you’re thinking and feeling.we have to provide nutritious food, clean drinking water, shelter, and the opportunity to live in a safe home. It also means ensuring that the dog is happy by providing ample play time, plenty of exercise, and stimulation for its mind. Caring for a dog is a big responsibility, and dog ownership is not something to enter into lightly, however this work will help you to successfully build a bond of love and trust with an important new member of your family.
Dogs can read facial expressions, communicate jealousy, display empathy, and even watch TV.It can learn to dance, play dead, and fetch specific items. Some humans can teach their dogs to do amazing things. Some dogs can even learn choreographed dance routines! Most dogs respond best by receiving treats for completing a trick.Humans and dogs have shared a special bond of friendship and mutual support ever since at least the Neolithic period.Dogs can strengthen our health not just as we grow older, but also much, much earlier than that: before we are even born.Perhaps the most intuitive benefit of sharing your life and home with a canine friend is that dogs give you “feel-good vibes” .Dogs appear to reduce symptoms of depression and render people more resilient to stress. That is why dogs are often used as therapy animals.Pets contribute to our well-being by helping to lower blood pressure, stress levels, and feelings of loneliness. They also encourage us to get out and exercise and can even lead to increased opportunities for socializing – people with dogs often love to chat with other ‘dog people’!
Dogs also have a second olfactory system, called the Jacobsen’s organ, that allows them to process much more information through smell than humans can—including what species they’re interacting with.Dog’s are the best companion for humans.

PETS AND US

Our unconditional support systems.

There’s something about those animals that makes us not resist the urge to stop and play with them a little. Maybe it’s those eyes, dreamy eyes, ‘they say the eyes don’t lie.’ The innocence. Serene smiles. The enthusiasm. Unparalleled.

We get drawn to them like moth to fire. Lures us in and makes us pour our hearts out for them. Makes us slip into a beautiful vibe, pushing all worries and troubles aside. Reminding us there are no things in this world that can elude us, of our cheerfulness, but us.

It’s hard not to budge and ogle at a stranger’s pet. As cliche it may have been portrayed in motion pictures, it’s true.

To vibe with your own tribe. To strike up a conversation with somebody who you wouldn’t have, if not for his little friend.

Coming across a person who’s not a pet person seems paradoxical. With the reason of such a peeve mostly from a traumatic experience in the past. Something that can be worked on effectively to eradicate.

They say Exposure is key, perennial for growth. To elevate the character of a person. Unknowingly or knowingly paving the way to learn a thing or two. Be it whatever the species, a bird, fish or Man’s best friend our beloved little hairy friends.

From dealing with responsibilities like catering to their needs- from feeding them to taking care of them. To learning a thing or two about giving and taking respect, on how to respect the boundaries of other beings. What little time spend with them is never wasted.

For we can learn or a thing or two from them. About compassion and the love for the family. After all home is where the heart is right? Life lessons at our disposal.

To live our lives carefree and free from the shackles of worries and self doubt. To live and let live. Being unconditional to the love you give out to the ones around us. To be full of life and a little mischievous, because you only live once.

Pets are synonymous for unconditional love. Even if you’re having the baddest of days, spending a little time with them elevates the mood to a higher level. It’s funny how they can totally read the situation and act aptly, when most of our two legged buddies fail to do so.

No matter whatever you have or who you are, their love for us never flutters.

A loyal comrade. What more do you need when you can live with your best friend?

People complain how deceitful and tragic the world is. I believe in doing and not complaining. “Being the change you want to see in the world,” the best way to live.

By adopting a pet, I believe it can have umpteen effect on making the people more compassionate and generous, like they say, little acts of kindness makes the world a place.

Adopting a pet could just be a part of one’s life, but for the pet it’ll be his whole world.
