Cats can teach us so much about life.
Our cat had already been named Pumpkin by the rescue centre when she came into our lives, when my mum was terminally ill. For us, owning a cat was a life-changing decision and we’ve never looked back.
She was a rescue cat that picked us out when we went to the cattery. She instantly attached herself to our daughter. She looked neglected, had a skin condition and had been found wandering the streets.
She came into our lives and changed us forever. Just by watching her I have become even more spiritually aware. We have all learned so much from her simple needs of love, warmth, food and shelter.
I love to observe how she interacts with her world. Cats are known for being spiritual. A cat’s spirituality allows us to tap into our world, and that helps us understand spiritual awareness centred around basic values that are part of the universe. It’s up to us to use that as a base for our lives.
These teachings lend themselves to a more spiritual, harmonious and peaceful life. Spirituality isn’t a religion. Spirituality relates to or affects the human spirit or soul, as opposed to physical or material things.
I am aware of all that I feel on a deeper level through my spiritual beliefs and having a cat helps me add to that.
Dedicated to our beautiful cat, Pumpkin.
