Momo is a luxuriously furred cat and loving feline soul mate to the charming cat blogger known as “SS.” Actually, it’s Momo who writes the blog, but SS is her human companion who attempts to supervise the whole thing. I like how SS points out that cats who are not “lap cats” are still sometimes…
“One who is perfectly suited to another in temperament”
“Someone with whom one has a special, almost spiritual connection”
I like these definitions. They sound like the feline soul mates I’ve known. What does this experience look like? A few specific traits come to mind. Let me know if you can relate to any of them.
I was moved by this letter shared last week in Gary Brogue’s news column:
“I lost my husband recently. Often at night while I am in bed, I start to cry. My 14-year old cat, who is usually on the bed with me, immediately comes up to me…and starts to purr…He often touches my face with his paw.”
Perhaps because cats can be so “of the wild” and independent, I find it especially meaningful when they show so much understanding and kindness…
