Welcome to Sunday All Day Brunch. This is an open topic thread. Help yourself to the goodies and sit a spell and let us know what is going on is your life. Today I am thinking of my pooties.
One of the most popular memes on Facebook are the variations of cats never forget that they were once worshiped as gods in ancient Egypt. In fact one of my pictures is called “Why Cats Have an Attitude.”
I wonder sometimes about my younger cat, Pixie. She was my Mom’s cat although Mom always referred to her as my cat and that she was the cat’s grandmother. She knew that the cat would out live her and felt that if I was Mom to the cat Pixie would adjust better. Pixie has adapted very well to the apartment in North Carolina. She loves looking out onto the parking lot and seeing who is coming and who is going. She is playing with the Christmas tree, her toys, and much to his dismay, Merlin.
I know that Pixie remembers Mom because of one thing that she still does. I will be sleeping and Pixie comes in and wakes me up. She will pat my face. She will put her little mouth and cold nose against my mouth. She will nudge me until I’m fully awake. I don’t even have to check the time because it is always around 3 AM. Pixie was with Mom when she died and that is the time Mom passed away. I’m sure she tried to “wake” Mom up. So now Pixie comes in to make sure that I will wake up and be there for her. Once I’m awake and talk to her for a moment she will cuddle next to me and go to sleep. Pixie remembers.
