Sitting quietly on a small forested mountain listening to the wind in the trees long enough to realize there is a pattern of waves similar to ocean waves coming up on shore.

Everytime I see my feral kitten take a couple of steps closer to me, with an upright tail, actually daring to greet me, I can't help but smile. She's come so far..she'll even come up to me to sniff me nowadays where before she wouldn't dare to in the same room.
And everytime I see how well she's adjusted to the life in my colony, happy to see others, happy to play, it's just..such a joy to see.
It doesn't help that she's a complete fuzzball (long-haired tabby) and has the most adorable expressions on her face
Having my cat, The Queen of Sheba (Sheba for short), curl up under my chin at night and sleep there makes me a happier person, also when she just sits on my lap without expecting to be petted as she does with my husband. She demands that he pet her by tapping his hand or arm with her paw. She usually leaves him when he stops petting, lol. He says that she comes to him for petting and to me for loving.
"How dreadful!" cried Lord Henry. "I can stand brute force, but brute reason is quite unbearable. There is something unfair about its use. It is hitting below the intellect." ~ Oscar Wilde - The picture of Dorian Gray
