Mindful Mornings With My Furry Feline Friend

Mindful Mornings With My Furry Feline Friend
 
It’s 5 am and the house is quiet. I stumble out of bed and wipe the sleep from my eyes. The sun is almost up and the air is crisp and fresh. This is why I love mornings. Early mornings are my time. It’s my time to take a few peaceful minutes to ponder and study, and then get to work. I grab a cup of herbal tea, my laptop and my phone, and head to the couch to get as much work done as I can before the rest of the house wakes up and the hustle and bustle of the day begins … and that’s when he joins me.

Every morning, my faithful feline friend hops up onto the couch and sits patiently waiting for a pat and cuddle of acknowledgement. He loves this time of day, when it’s just me and him. I pet him, and he kneads me. It’s our morning ritual. My cat, Tails, is a kind of “behind the scenes” guy. He doesn’t like a lot of people, but he likes me. In the busyness of the day, he usually finds quiet spots to hide away, but here in the peace of the mornings, he is happy just spending time with me. He watches me while I work, and I pet and love on him to tell him “thank you” for sharing this morning with me.

This year has brought a lot of change and growth for my business. While this has been exciting, it also has been fairly nerve wracking and A LOT of extra work, which means my early mornings have been all the more necessary. Through all of this early morning work and growth, Tails has been by my side, gently purring me on. He reminds me that there is a need for balance in all things and of the importance of taking time for the things that matter the most.

As the house begins to stir, I put aside my laptop and phone, in aid of a more important work … preparing a healthy breakfast for my family and that of-course includes Tails. This is the part of our morning ritual that he has been waiting for … a tasty breakfast. “It’s breakfast time, boy,” I call out and he dutifully follows me to his food bowl.

Just as Tails has been there to support and encourage my growth this year, I want to be sure to support and encourage his healthy growth. For this reason, I choose Purina Pro Plan Wet Cat Food. He loves wet cat food, so Purina Pro Plan Wet Cat Food is perfect for him. I love it because it not only provides a meal that he looks forward to, but also provides complete and balanced nutrition and a high moisture content to help Tails stay hydrated. My feline friend and I make a great early morning team, so it makes me happy to know that I am helping him to be at his healthiest thanks to his food which is high in protein, featuring real meat, poultry or fish and that supports a healthy immune system nutrition. Knowing that it is backed by a team of over 400 scientists –  including nutritionists, behaviorists and veterinarians  – gives me peace of mind that he is being well cared for.
