When we got Ella 4.5 years ago she made it quickly known that she was a close but no touching kind of cat. Not to say that she didn’t ever want cuddles, but she’d quickly get overtouched and need some personal space.
She was annoyed she had so share her world with the dog. But when we added more cats I thought she’d lose her mind.
But slowly she got used to her new siblings. She started to relax more, was more cuddly more often, and generally seemed happier.
And now things like this happen
The power of love never ceases to amaze me.
Often those who act like they need love the least actually crave it the most. True for Ella, but also true for the rest of us humans.
