I guess every animal is different and from Meushi I learned a lot about love. I learned what it was like to have my love for another being grow deeper and deeper over time. Until her, I thought love was a static thing that was either there or not. But having her in my life every day, having her there when I was happy and having her cuddles and love when I was sad and being there to care for her in her last year of life when she was so sick just taught me so much about love and bonding. With Vader I have learned a lot about trust. Vader trusts me implicitly. If his food dish is empty he doesn't meow at all. He just trusts that I'll eventually see it and fill it. Unlike other cats he lets me pet his paws, his belly, where ever I want. I can even clip his claws without him flinching because he trusts me that much. I can pick him up and hold him like a baby or hug him or hold him in all kinds of crazy positions and he'll just sit there and purr. He has no fear in my arms, it's like he trusts me completely.
He is as mischievous as he is affectionate and I never know what kind of crazy trouble to expect from him. He keeps me entertained every day. He is a constant joy in my life and each night ends with him and each morning begins with him curled up with me. I honestly don't think my life would work without him. Happy anniversary my little kitty snuggle bear!!
