Just A Cat

From time to time, people tell me, “lighten up, it’s just a cat,” or, ” that’s a lot of money for just a cat”. They don’t understand the distance traveled, the time spent, or the costs involved for “just a cat.” Some of my fondest moments have come about with “just a cat.”

Many hours have passed and my only company was “just a cat,” but I did not once feel slighted. Some of my saddest moments have come about with “just a cat,” and in those days of darkness, the gentle touch of “just a cat” gave me comfort and reason to overcome the day. If you, too, think it’s “just a cat,” then you will probably understand phrases like “just a friend,” “just a sunrise,” or “just a promise.”

“Just a cat ” brings into my life the very essence of friendship, trust, and pure unbridled joy. “Just a cat” brings out the compassion and patience that make me a better person. Because of “just a cat” I will rise early, take long walks and look longingly to the future.

So for me and folks like me, it’s not “just a cat” but an embodiment of all the hopes and dreams of the future, the fond memories of the past, and the pure joy of the moment. “Just a cat” brings out what’s good in me and diverts my thoughts away from myself and the worries of the day. I hope that someday they can understand that it’s not “just a cat” but the thing that gives me humanity and keeps me from being “just a person”. So the next time you hear the phrase “just a cat” just smile, because they “just” don’t understand.
