Its Just A Cat

From time to time people tell me, "Lighten up, its just a cat or "That's
a lot of money for just a cat."


They don't understand the distance traveled, the time spent or the costs involved for "just a cat".


Some of my proudest moments have come about with "just a cat".

Many hours have passed and my only company was "just a cat" but I did not once feel slighted.


Some of my saddest moments have been brought about by "just a cat" and, in those days of darkness, the gentle touch of "just a cat" gave me comfort and reason to overcome the day.


If you, too, think its "just a cat" then you will probably understand
phrases like "just a friend", "just a sunrise" or "just a promise".

"Just a cat" brings into my life the very essence of friendship, trust and
pure unbridled joy.


"Just a cat" brings out the compassion and patience that makes me a better person.

Because of "just a cat" I will rise early, stay in all day and look
longingly to the future.


So for me, and folks like me, its not "just a cat" but an embodiment of all the hopes and dreams of the future, the fond memories of the past and the pure joy of the moment.


"Just a cat" brings out what's good in me and diverts my thoughts away from myself and the worries of the day.


I hope that someday they can understand that its not "just a cat" but the thing that gives me humanity and keeps me from being "just a human"


So the next time you hear the phrase "just a cat" just smile....... because
they "just don't understand" .
