Treasured companions #writebravely

I am by no means a rich person. Never have been. Growing up, we were a middle class family. Now as an independent adult, I still consider myself to be in that range. When I think of treasures, money, gold, gems are way beyond my reach. But fortunately, we can have other treasures in our lives. Sure, some might still have monetary value {my phone and laptop!} but there are a lot that don’t.

Currently in my life, I have two treasures.

My cats. Pebbles and Buttons.

They came into my life at different times; Pebbles in September 2011 and Buttons in February 2012. Since then, they have been my constant companions.

2012 was a tough year for me and I don’t think I’d have coped had it not been for them. They were a delightful distraction while also providing me with unconditional love. Their antics have made me laugh while their cuddles soothed me when I cried. They’ve seen me stressed and sad, happy and excited, angry and mad. And yet, they love me.

Cats have a reputation of being stand-offish. Of being jerks. And sure, they can be trying sometimes with their mischief or whinging.

But honestly, if you don’t like cats and you meet Pebbles and Buttons, you will surely fall in love.

Nowadays, when I return to a home where I live by myself, it’s heartening to see them waiting at the door the minute they hear my car. It brings joy when they follow me around the empty house. And I feel content when we go to bed together at night.

Surely, if these aren’t treasured companions, I don’t know what is!

What’s a treasure you have?

Do share!

    Pets can be such a joy and treasure, Sanch– I’m glad your trying times are behind you and Pebbles and Buttons saw you through it. I’m not a cat person, but your cats sound very affectionate and friendly!

    Pets can become an emotional attachment too more than a companion. Glad that you have 2 lovely cats who wait for you when you open the door. I saw this scene in the movie secret life of pets and realized how happy pets will be waiting for their owner. I never had a pet.
