Did you say something?
This is my friend - Cat. She also goes by the names Butta Cup, Little Girl, Shut-Up, and Pooper. It seems interesting how out of all the living beings in your life, the ones that cannot talk are most often your best-friend? This implies (to me) that our form of communication is outdated and lacking.
When I can understand my cat's feelings more so than a human friend - it seems futile to develop any meaningful relationships. Knowing I cannot be judged or condemned, simply because the animal doesn't speak, is so refreshing and real. I can actually feel my cat's desires, needs, questions and requests. Something that these very words you're reading could never do.
