Things happen by chance in life, we can’t have control on events. When I was a child the thing that liked the most were surprises. Now as an adult, I try to keep that amusement of things in life. Nonetheless, it is not easy to keep up with that. Busy adulthood restrains life enjoyment.
Then it shows as is if it was always there, a little surprise resting on the staircase. Happy finding, a cute cat. This happened a week ago, when I gave shelter to a cute black cat. I kept it for one night, luckily I was able to find the cat’s owner the next day. Since I have mild allergy to cats, I have never owned a cat. Well, that night I had the chance to experience what is to own a cat.
The owner didn’t realize his cat was outside his home; but I wonder why the cat decided to explore outdoors. Was it trying to tell something is not going right, I mean maybe the cat was asking for more attention and care. Perhaps it was looking for a plan B owner, a different place to stay while there is nobody at home.
Things I learned from this experience were:
1) animals can feel your good intentions when they feel cared,
2) there are no prejudices in animals, they only learn to differentiate what is good or bad for them in a precise moment,
3) from that premise they take decisions based on what they see or feel.
4) they are thankful, you know in their gestures or movements when they say thank you.
