Dorothea in the Mirror, a Jill Szekely mystery

There's more to animals than just fur.


 

 

I hear her voice so gently call

Her loving tones across the air

I cannot help but caterwaul

My heart’s response to loving care

The sound of her compels my voice

To reach out in accompaniment

To be with her my favoured choice

We’re one another’s complement

She cherishes my feline traits

And fills my world with harmony

I simply cannot contemplate

To be without her company

She knows my foibles inside out

I never need to be concerned

We, cat and human, are about

A shared respect and love,

That’s earned.

It's truly marvelous when we earn their love and respect. One of my cats named Flower sounds just like yours above.

IT IS NOT EASY TO FORM THIS TYPE OF BOND...SO MUST TRUST AND LOVE MUST BE THERE. BUT, FOR ME, IT IS UNDERSTANDABLE WITH A SPECIAL KIND OF FELINE. I'M THINKING OF 'CANDI', A WONDERFUL MEMBER OF OUR FAMILY THAT LEFT US AND TOOK HER REST 2 YEARS AGO. SHE WAS 18 YEARS OLD. I WROTE HER A TRIBUTE...IT WAS THE LEAST I COULD DO. MY DAUGHTER HAD HER CREMATED AND HER ASHES ARE KEPT IN AN URN. RECENTLY, A HANDSOME FELLOW CALLED 'TROUBLE' HAS COME ON BOARD...NOT BAD, BUT STILL, NOTHING LIKE THE LADY 'CANDI'. WELL DONE AND THANKS FOR SHARING. LOVE, BLESSINGS AND FAITH...JOYCE * HIS INSPIRATIONS

Sounds like a match made in the world of feminine borders, and each respects and understand the other, depends on each other and is there when the chips are down with a kind word, or purrrrr ...
