There is never a dull moment at DFW Pet Sitting Services!! When things slow down before busy summer gets here, we tend to stir it up and have some fun with it!! We recently gave away two $200 dog/cat sitting gift certificates asking our clients to answer this question:
If you had 30 seconds where your cat or dog could understand you, what would you tell them?
The responses were bringing tears to my eyes and left me laughing out loud while I was reading them trying to not wake up my children. I felt compelled writing this separate post to bring everyone’s attention to the winner who got the most amount of votes. I want to feature our client Trish W. and her cat Paprika. The story that you are about to read will touch your heart and bring tears to your eyes. It is also a testament to our beloved pets who shower us with their love and devotion when we slow down and let them into our hearts.
I want to share Trish’s post with everyone I know. I want to remind people that our pets are always there for us on this higher level when we need them. Please share this story with your family and friends, and challenge them to get still, look into the eyes of their four-legged children, and tell them exactly what they want them to know. I am 100% confident that our pets will understand every single word.
If I only had 30 seconds where my cat Paprika could understand me, I would tell her what a great companion she is to me – she is truly my best girl. I went home to see my 34-year old sister in December 2012 not knowing that what she would be gone in February 2013. During the time in between my sister was put on hospice care and it was a very a emotionally troubling time for me. Since I have no family here in Texas, and while you want your friends to always be around they can’t be.
My cat Paprika was truly there for me, I believe unconditionally, when I would come home from work all I did was cry on my couch, you can imagine how awful it is to know that your sister is going to pass away when she was so young but my cat would come every night and lay on my lap for me and she would stay there next to me the whole time. In the evenings I would tell her I need her when I went to bed – she would come in and lay right next to me. One time she even got under my blanket and laid next to my legs. I can’t tell you how comforting and amazing that was because if it wasn’t for her I don’t know if I would have held it together so well.
I would tell my cat that I always love her, I’ll never leave her and when I go on vacation I always come back to her. She is the child I can never have. That is what I would let my cat know – just how important and special she is to me and I love her very much.
