You know what breaks my heart? All the times my cat Zeus is meowing incessantly at me and getting up on his hind legs while leaning on me and poking my cheek with his paw, yelling in my face... but I’m busy and I keep telling him to please wait til I’m done (as I’m human-ing: on the phone or writing an important email etc). Then he sadly walks away with his head down. When I’m done what I’m doing, I get up and look down at my feet... and see his lone ball on the floor. He always brings his ball to my feet so we can play fetch.
I then run and find him, lifting him into the air and apologise each time. He starts purring loudly and kneading the air in happiness, then we play for as long as he wants. How incredible are these animals that they are so forgiving unconditionally and so loving without end - for a brief moment in our lives - but we are their entire life from start to end often. We can all learn from the pure love of our animals.
