Her head lay perfectly still, taking up only the surface area of my upturned fingers. Utterly trusting. Completely letting go. We shared a lifetime of precious moments. Golden affection dipped in love and wrapped with understanding. My cat was fused with my calling, walking beside me as a spiritual companion that showered me in the only unconditional love I'd ever known. The animals remind us~ we are one with all that is. They teach us peace. Guide us to compassion. Inspire spontaneous joy. Unveil all that's temporary and simultaneously eternal. What angels they are.
