Every morning about 6:00 AM, Miss Kitty wakes me up.
She does so by standing on me kneading like a locomotive and purring very loudly.
Should I decide to not rise immediately she will begin to groom me and if I still do not get up she curls up as closely as possible and rests until I do.
Now, obviously, she wants something and that something is breakfast.
I’m her provider and if I don’t ever get up and feed her she will be a very hungry cat.
She knows who has her food.
What I finally noticed was how she goes about getting what she needs.
There are other ways the cat could get my attention in the morning…loud yowls, a quick scratch across the face,or a bite to the head would all do the trick.
She does none of the above, she always acts as if she’s genuinely grateful and very happy to be here at all.
The cat loves me, not just my provisions.
The purring, the kneading, and the waiting are all ways that cats show both trust and affection.
When I come home at night. she’s waiting in my computer chair and the purring and kneading begin again.
She needs dinner, too.
She gets it.
I’m faithful to feed her as long as she’s faithful to ask.
Sometimes, I give her treats she doesn’t even ask for.
The way she asks makes it a joy to feed her.
Sometimes, she just wants to sleep in my lap…
I wish it were that simple for people to get what they need…
Make your own application…
