Just saw this and had to share... VERY true!

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

1. My life is likely to last 10-15 years. Any separation from you is likely to be painful.

2. Give me time to understand what you want of me

3. Place your trust in me. It is crucial for my well-being.

4. Don't be angry with me for long and don't lock me up as punishment. You have your work, your friends, your entertainment, but I have only you.

5. Talk to me. Even if I don't understand your words, I do understand your voice when speaking to me.

6. Be aware that however you treat me, I will never forget it.

7. Before you hit me, before you strike me, remember that I could hurt you, and yet, I choose not to bite you.

8. Before you scold me for being lazy or uncooperative, ask yourself if something might be bothering me. Perhaps I'm not getting the right food, I have been in the sun too long, or my heart might be getting old or weak.

9. Please take care of me when I grow old. You too, will grow old.

10. On the ultimate difficult journey, go with me please. Never say you can't bear to watch. Don't make me face this alone. Everything is easier for me if you are there, because I love you so.


My favorites are #5 and #10. Especially #5- I talk to my cats like they are little people- and they seem to really like it, and the more I talk to them the more talkative they are (or meow-ative lol)

This is beautiful and I believe it to be true also. I will follow every one of them. I would never even think of leaving my kitty alone when crossing the Bridge no matter how painful for me. When my Misty crossed over I wanted to be sure I was the last face she saw and it was. I lost her last Nov. 22 2008 and I still miss her terribly altho I have Autumn now.

Thanks for sharing, #10 brought tears to my eyes because we have two elders that will have to face that someday. Though I've never let one cross the bridge alone, no matter how hard it is I've always been there with them.
