I've had a few fellow bloggers gently remind me that I do live in a two animal household. Elora does not get quite the coverage that Sophie does...but she does hold a special place in my heart. I previously wrote about dog love...and thought I would pause for a moment to consider cat love.
My very best friend in the world also owns a cat and a dog. We have spent some time talking about how different and valuable each connection is....about how we know that we will always have a dog in our lives and we know that we will always have a cat.
Cat love is quiet love. Elora is like that old friend you have known for years, whose friendship is carved into the very foundation of your soul. That friend who you can call after a month has past and the two of you can easily slip into conversation as if you had just spoken yesterday. She bears no grudges, she is constant and steady and she brings comfort to your life.
Elora's love is rhythmic...like a heartbeat. It is the love of an old friend.
