Emotional lives of cat

How could we fail to see that just as some animals make us envy their remarkable physical capabilities, so do others make us wish for their emotional gifts. Cats have an emotional directness, a purity of purpose (or purposelessness?) -no compromise, especially with the honesty of their feelings.

Here I am, every moment of the cat says, love me as I am, or not at all.

With my cats I am learning the lesson of the sufficiency of the moment. No yesterday, no tomorrow, only the magic of today, of this single instant, No remorse, no regret, no yearning, just the play of now.
