Sometimes during my morning routine, my kitty friend Lily will plop herself down in front of me. I know what she wants. She wants to be brushed. I don’t always have time. My cat friends get more attention than any cats on the planet, but sometimes there are other things I have to do. This morning, there she was tummy up in my way. I had a full day planned but not a strict schedule so I reluctantly succumbed to her desire and began brushing her. As she purred and rolled and snuggled I began to realize that this was more about me than her. Sure she loves to be brushed, but as I brushed and smoothed down her fur I began to relax and enjoy the interaction with her. It seems she only does this on mornings when I’m particularly stressed or rushed. Maybe I’ll be more cooperative with her assessment of things. I think she may not realize when she needs to be brushed, but she does sense when I need to brush her.
