I’ve lived with many animals during my life….cats, dogs, guinea pigs, birds, rabbits, turtles, horses, cows, lizards, ants (remember the Ant Farms?) …..I have been blessed with their presence..completely transformed by their influence on my heart.
Our Orange Boys, Oscar and Felix are two of the most remarkable animal individuals I’ve had the pleasure to know. Perhaps because they’ve never been separated since birth…. their relationship intact, their sense of purpose and contentment with life never challenged….they delight and surprise me daily with their unwavering joy and fascination with life and their devotion to each other in spite of their spats and their disagreements.
From tiny brothers who could both fit into one cat bed to growing boys who loved to sleep together whenever they could, to adult young men who still find solace in the occasional naps, piled one atop the other……..I feel privileged to be a part of their lives….grateful to learn from their commitment to each other and blessed to have them as vital members of our family.
