Day 7 #Loveuary❤ My Furbaby

loveuary

I can’t write about love for my family and miss out this one key member… Sonu Singh.

Sonu Singh is our beautiful 3-year-old kitty. If you had asked me a few years back, whether I would ever have a pet, I would have laughed in your face!

Don’t get me wrong, I do love animals, but our life didn’t feel like the sort of life where an animal, apart from fish, would ever fit in.

Hubby Dearest would have loved a dog, but, though I don’t mind them, I have a childhood fear of them which I haven’t quite totally got over. So he started looking at kittens, as he knew I liked cats.

I was packed off to a Parents evening, with my children as he was ‘going out’ and I arrived back to find this ginger fluffball in a box! Aside from the fact we had NOTHING for a kitten in the house, he quickly filled our hearts with joy, and Sonu Singh is firmly part of this family.

I often find myself talking to him, having random conversations. And he does the same to us! He’s an indoor cat so he thinks he’s human anyway!

And here is a little poem I wrote for him a couple of years ago. It was actually for World Poetry Day in 2015. I do love my kitty 😻

He looks at me
With soulful eyes
They make him seem 
So terribly wise
A look that takes
Your breath away
And eyes that seem
To want to say
Why can’t I eat
What you have got?
Why can’t I sleep
Upon the cot?
When can I
Go out to play?
Will you leave me
Alone today?
My darling boy
Why can’t you see
You’re wholly part
Of this family!
You might be furry
And we’re not
But love for you,
There is a lot.

    The best kind of dog to get if your are not comfortable with them is a Labrador. They are one of the kindest sweetest dogs. I have a fear of dogs but when I got a yellow lab some years ago, it helped me deal with some of my fears and how to at least deal with them.

    I’m like you I thought I’d never be owned by cats – I now have 2. 2 my daughter brought home and now she’s moved out and getting married.
    Your cats adorable

    Your cat is a superstar. Have you ever thought about creating a separate page for your cat?

    Hi Ritu – I started off with two rabbits, and then moved on to cats. It took me over 50 years to get around to a dog (due to a bite in my past)… but should have done it sooner! 🙂

    Sonu Singh,
    Your look of seriousness at all the craziness your human family puts you through is commendable. You have a lovely mummy. Treasure her always and never think of flying the coop, fur baby !

    He is too sweet not to write about. Our pets can be closer at times than any people. They don’t judge and they feel you more than they see you. Although “only” guinea pigs, I cried about each little fur ball who left me and about the one I had to give away because he was left in the end. They have our hearts on Hello!
