The other day a client asked me about my favorite pet. She said she always wondered what I had around me when I was giving readings. My favorite pet is cats in general. More specifically, my big Maine Coon boy named Smoke. He looks like he has smoke coming off his body because his hair gets so grey and wispy at the ends. We have a “love thang” happening for sure! When looking for our Daily Quote today, I found the following from Jules Verne. He is the French author who is said to be the father of the science fiction genre. He was born on February 8, 1828. He said the following:
I believe cats to be spirits come to earth. A cat, I am sure, could walk on a cloud without coming through.
I chuckled when I read this about my favorite pets. I know that lots of people do not like cats. I grew up surrounded by dogs. Then one day, I met and got to know a cat. Now, I am surrounded by cats. I live in the country so they wander up looking for food. Of course, they find it…and fresh water too. I have three indoor cats. In my next life, I want to come back as one of my cats. I cannot imagine a better life!
What is your favorite pet? Do you realize how much this animal enriches your life? Do you realize how much energy this animal shares with you and you with it? Why do you love this animal so much? These are all great questions to ask yourself today. For the most part, when you really love an animal or breed, it is serving as an animal spirit totem for you. I have a cat animal totem for sure! It took me a couple decades of living to fully understand cats, but they are no doubt my favorite pet and enhance my life greatly. I am grateful every day for my feline friends. Let’s be extra nice to our animal friends today and show them our gratitude.
