Remembering Zen Master Kitty

“I have known many Zen masters in my life. All of them cats.” –my friend, Cyndy

This is Vega. He was always in my lap, snuggled up next to me, or laying on top of me, pawing me in the face to remind me it was lovin’ time. He understood contentment on a cellular level and radiated love. He really was a Zen master!

Vega snuggled up like a little baby, all on his own.

He snuggled up like that on his own.

We did talk, you know. We understood one another, very well. That connection made it especially hard when he passed, but I’m nonetheless very grateful for our time together.

He comes to visit–I feel him climb into bed with us, or brush past my leg. One or the other of our kitties often sits in the hallway, with high-pitched yelps when he’s nearby.

I find it comforting, feeling his energy when he stops in. How could you not love the little furball, after all?

Do you have a special connection with a pet?

p.s. Happy (belated) Memorial Day. Here’s to loving memories.

Jewels the Psychic Cat!

Jewels the Tarot Kitty!

Jewels understands me better than many people.

I like saying I was a cat in a former life. When I first started saying this, it was mostly just my Leo rising, joking. But after talking for years to Jewels, I’m not kidding quite so much anymore.

When I had an intuitive portrait done at a psychic fair, the first thing out of the artist’s mouth was, “You’re surrounded by cats!” I had to laugh–I had five of ’em at the time! There’s no denying my affinity with felines. And it’s easy to see with Jewels, since we’re close.

I’ve long said this kitty is psychic. It’s the most reasonable explanation. She KNOWS when I’m having a bad day and gives me extra attention, even in uncharacteristic ways. She’s incredibly smart. She hides when something she doesn’t like is coming up (without any indication of what’s coming) and is exceptionally vocal, carrying on full conversations with me.

Technically, I (generally) speak in English and she responds in Cat. But we do understand each other perfectly. I’m taking this as evidence!

Have you ever known a psychic animal?
