|The Shape of Happiness, 5 x 7 watercolor, 140 lb. Fabriano Artistico, cold press paper|
I've never been a "cat person," and there's a long history of misfortune behind that statement. I'm a dog person.
But since adopting two "rescue" cats, I've changed, realizing they chose us. Fittingly perhaps, the first one, now named Snoops, a tuxedo cat, acts almost like a dog in affection and loyalty. But he's still very much feline in temperament and independence.
Still, my adoption comes with unexpected benefits., including lowering blood pressure.
When I think about it, what is happier than a cat sitting on your lap, purring. Or soaking up the warmth of a fire in the fireplace on a cold winter day? The shape of happiness.
