My Chloe

I called this blog Purrfect Moments because I feel all the moments with my cats are some of the very best moments in my life. They give us such a huge amount of love and trust. Who can look into those beautiful eyes and not have their heart melt?

The other day I was feeling very down. I just lost one of my babies, Heidi, to kidney problems. She was 16 years old and I got her when she was just 8 weeks old, a little stray looking for food. Like all my babies, she had my heart in her little paws. I was sitting in a small sun room I have and crying, just missing her so much.

Chloe, another little stray I found 15 years ago, is not the most affectionate cat in the world. She likes to be petted but doesn’t like to cuddle much and doesn’t  like being held or picked up.  She came into the room and got up on the couch with me. I told her that mama was just sad, but it was ok. She came over to me and crawled into my lap and let me hug her. She stayed there for a long time, which for her is very unusual.

It was one of those purrfect moments. There is a quote I found somewhere: “We don’t remember days; we remember moments.” I think this is so true. That moment will forever be in my mind. We finally got off the couch and went to the kitchen for some treats. She gave me a comfort I doubt anyone else could have. I just wanted to share one of my purrfect moments with you. I would love to hear about yours.
