Therapy Kitty

There has never been a cat
Who couldn’t calm me down
By walking
Past my chair.
~Rod McKuen

Few things are as relaxing as scooping this little guy up, draping him over your shoulder, and resting your head on his warm side as he purrs contentedly in your ear and pads your back with his paws. Or simply petting his sun-warmed fur as he naps in the sunshine. Some people have therapy animals, and while this may be unbelievable to some, I assure you that there are definitely pets who have an incredible healing power. Remi is one of them. Through all of life’s ups and downs, all the chaos that occurs on a regular basis, all the worry and wonder, all the uncertainty, Remi remains constant. I’m here, he says, as he curls up on your lap. Pet me. Love me. Breathe.

And suddenly, all is well with the world.

  1. I don’t just like this, I LOVE IT!! So so true!! Our 3 fur babies are all the therapy we’ll ever need. There’s nothing like it!!

  2. I agree 100% I have three cats and four dogs and they are my wonderful furry family…I love them to bits and you are right they do have healing, calming properties, Just by stroking and petting all worries seem to disolve away….loved the post Mariah and I love Reme

    • Getting another kitty crosses my mind from time to time, but Remi is getting up there in years, and I want to make sure he feels truly cherished for all his days. I fear that he will feel replaced if we bring home another cat, especially if it happens to be a kitten. He loved Goobers, and I’m not sure it would be the same for him with another cat.
