It amazes me how animals can sense when we need their comfort. The other morning, I awoke from a very vivid dream feeling disoriented and sad. I must have jumped slightly as I came into consciousness because my cat Gus, who was nestled up against my arm, with his head on my shoulder, wrapped his little paw around my arm as if to tell me it was going to be OK.
I want to know how they know.
Because they clearly know when their humans need a little comforting.
And they’re happy to oblige.
Sometimes I take for granted just how precious they are…
…and then I discovered that a little furry someone left me a couple of tootsie rolls on the bath mat instead of in the litter box.
Nothing is perfect, but these little muffins come pretty darn close.
