Cats can teach us so much about life. Our cat had already been named Pumpkin by the cat 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 had a skin condition and had been found wandering the streets.
She came into our lives and changed our lives 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 and watch how she interacts with her world. 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 and using 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 of all that is around me and having a cat helps me add to my spiritual beliefs.
Dedicated to our beautiful cat, Pumpkin.
