I just love this silly cat so much. SubhanAllah* God made these creatures and they love us unconditionally, trust us no matter what we do to them, and will stay with us unless they are forceably taken away.
Since the very first day I brought Zuzu home she has trusted me. No more than four or five hours after I first met the silly kitten I took her to the vet where she got a number of painful immunizations and it was my arms that she sought protection in and my hands that she purred under even through all of the needle pokes. Today after a painful antibiotic injection she tried to hide in my armpit and this evening the very first moment I sat down to peel potatoes she left her second favorite place to sleep and climbed onto my lap, potatoes and all, and tried to curl up in my arms. Even after lovingly pushing her down she stayed curled up at my side until I finished.
Every single chance she gets to climb into my side of the armoire and sleep on the clothes she does so, no matter how many times I shoo her out and no matter that Mr. MM leaves the door of his side open so she can sleep in there whenever she wants. Its my side of the armoire she breaks into (although I think a part of this is because I actually leave a pile of shawls and other miscellaneous items of clothing in a pile at the bottom so its comfy and warm) to sleep on my clothes.
Sometimes I am overwhelmed by how much I love this silly creature and I’m overwhelmed by how much she loves me. God gave us these creatures, and all of the earth, as a trust.
I’m trying to earn it, one silly utta*** at a time.
