Could we be the “Idiots of Planet Earth” show in some galaxy far far away? (amazon)
Probably not. In a way though, my life is on display to superior beings. I live with 2 cats that observe my every move. They like to be near me, so they follow me around and watch what I do. When I settle in on the computer, the sofa, reading chair, etc., they settle into a nap. If I get up and move around, they get up and see what the fuss is about. I like to think it’s because of their intense interest in me, though it could be food related.
They are the perfect audience for me. They love me unconditionally. They don’t care how I look naked. They are happy when I come home. No matter how soundly they are sleeping when they hear the door open, they are there. Sometimes slowly waking up. Sometimes one will be waking even more slowly, and walking up to join the first one as I enter. I love coming home to them.
Recently I placed a blanket on the back of the sofa. The sofa has comfy cushions along the back, and the back is slightly tilted, so a gap widens as it hangs down the back. This has created a tunnel for patrolling, a hide and seek spot, and a place to hang out. Clearly I need to leave the blanket there now. This is also how the piece of canvas ended up remaining in a random spot on the floor. I have multiple cat trees and elevated cat beds, as well as several other lounging spots by windows and elsewhere for them. My house has been decorated by my cats.
I think one of the reasons I love animals so much is that there is no malice in them. They wouldn’t do the kinds of cruel and destructive stuff I see people do.
They have emotions and my kitties have very expressive eyes. They are mostly about love and I love them more every day.
Who do you love?
