Arizona Addiction Psychiatrist - Daily Musings

Pounce the Cat

We adopted a cat this past weekend. She is a beautiful one year old with long hair, tortise shell in color and she has 6-7 toes on each paw. I had cats growing up but in my adult life have only had dogs, of which we have one, a handsome shepherd mix named Buddy. Pounce, as my daughter named her is very inquisitive. I had forgotten how curious cats are about everything! She doesn't have the run of the house yet but is enjoying the freedom from her former cage. She seems happy with us and we with her.I am once again amazed that we can have relationships with creatures other than ourselves.

Another thought for the day from my new friend, the 2nd century philosopher emperor

"Receive without conceit; release without a struggle"

  1. Congratulations on your new family member! I can't image not having pets (or "Babies" as we lovingly refer to them) in our life. They teach us about unconditional love, joy, loyalty, friendship, affection, forgiveness, bravery, living in the moment, letting go, and so many other life lessons.

    Blessings to you and your family, including of course your 4-legged family members.
