Flo: A Barn Cat’s Sunrise

Barn Cat’s Sunrise

Like many animals, Flo has experienced a lot of life. Like many animals, we can learn from it. An abandoned cat, then a barn cat, now a cat with two worlds: the pasture and gardens and barn, and, on cold nights, the house. She chooses the kind of life she wants, she is free to live her life and take her chances. She likes to be warm and dry, she loves to hunt and prowl.

In theĀ  mornings, I come downstairs to the sunrise flooding the living room window, and i often find Flo looking out at her other world, watching, waiting, meditating, staying within herself. I learn every day that cats are profoundly spiritual beings. I appreciate her.
