My Cat Saved My Life: Examples — 6 Comments

  1. Without my cats and parakeet my life at home would be definitely lonely since my office is also my home ! As a blogger/Traveller my pets have instilled some form of discipline in my household and they have also benefited my house-caretaker Sabina in her personal life.Cats have definitely enriched my life and the household despite being a maintenance handicap at times, especially owning two cats in a household.Ultimately, the positive benefits of caring for my pets outweighs the negative qualities.

      • Michael, my housekeeper Sabina.Dias is full-time but she does go home everyday as her house is close to mine.Beneficial for both of us as she can look after her home while working at my residence.She is an excellent care-taker of the cats and they literally await her daily arrival in the evening when she returns to my house.Both the cats are very attached to her as she feeds them and bizarrely on her arrival in the house they go to the bathroom for their toilet routines.Normally, the cats are always sleeping throughout the day while i occasionally pat them in-between my computer or other work.

    • I’d say in some sense my first cat Gigi in Canada saved my life in some long term sense whereby I took better care of myself when close to the edge because I could see how perturbed she was when I was in a bad state. I also made sure to always be around to love her and care for her. Without her I would have been able to be more irresponsible with my health and life.

      And to this day, all the cats I have cared for and lived with have given me direction and happiness in my life. I’d be very lonely without cats and my life would be quite different. People can’t fill the space cats fill for me personally. Most people would say it the other way around – ‘cat’s can’t fill the space people fill’ and although technically that may be true, my point is that it’s the former which jumps into my head and not the latter. In other words in my life I need cats.

      How do you define ‘save’? In terms of death, my cat Gigi in Canada may have saved my life but I’ll never know. ‘Saved’ in terms of quality of life – well then all my cats have saved me from a kind of loneliness and generally suffering from not being near a cat most of the time 🙂

      • I understand what you are saying. Cats can be life savers but in a subtle way. When a person is on the edge, and many are, a cat can get you off it. A cat can keep a person balanced and keep their feet on the ground.
