I’m writing this merely so I can share my picture of my cat.
This is Bailey, if you haven’t read before this. She is 18 years old and she is my dearest love.
I count every day a blessing that I wake up and she’s still here. I know my time with her is soon to come to a close. She’s in good health for her age but I know she can’t live forever.
I have ponderings at night where I talk to God and I ask him why animals don’t live as long as us. I could easily see myself in my old years and Bailey being right there with me.
I guess too that it’s good to leave us longing for more. I know there are people who aren’t as… much of an animal lover as I am and still others who shouldn’t have pets of any kind. Is this a way to protect them?
I could not imagine my life without a cat. I can’t imagine how my life will be, without her, when that time comes.
Everyday I pray for just a little more time with her.
