JUST A CAT......
from time to
time people tell me "lighten up, its just a cat" or "that's
a lot of money for just a cat"
understand the distance travelled, the time spent, or the
costs involved for "just a cat". Some of my proudest moments
have come about with "just a cat" Many hours have passed and
my only company was "just a cat" but i did not feel slighted.
Some of my saddest moments have been brought about by "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

"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

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, the
pure joy of the moment "Just a cat" brings out what is 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 things that give me humanity
and keeps me from being "Just a human

time you hear the phrase "Just a cat", smile, because they
"just don't understand"
