Hi, everyone! It’s Ruby! It’s been forever since Mom let me write something here. I’ve been hard at work helping her with product reviews, being Mom’s office assistant, and, my most important job of them all, keeping my sister Allegra in line. What’s that, Allegra? You keep me in line? <kitty snort>
Anyway, one of my jobs is to help Mom meditate every morning. She says meditation is important for her physical, mental and spiritual health. I have no idea what those big words mean, but what I do know is that every morning for 10 to 15 minutes, Mom sits quietly in a special chair, and let me tell you, this makes for excellent lap time! Mom says it’s okay for me to be on her lap if I’m quiet.
And therein lies the challenge. I love Mom so much that it’s hard for me to just sit still in her lap. I have to show her just how much I love her! So I rub my face against hers, or make biscuits on her legs, or roll over on my back so she can rub my belly. And I purr and purr and purr! I know Mom loves it, because it makes her smile, and sometimes even laugh. But she says it’s not conducive to getting into a meditative state. Those big words again. Why can’t humans just say what they mean?
Anyway, she says if I want to meditate with her, I need to learn to be quiet. That’s asking an awful lot, don’t you think? After all, I’m a tortie! We don’t do quiet! But because I love my Mom, and because I love how her energy feels when she meditates, I’m going to try really hard. I’m going to curl up on her lap quietly, and just purr and purr.
And then, when Mom is done with her meditation, I’m going to pounce on Allegra!
Do your kitties meditate with you?
