Being new here and new to Druidism, I have to say that one of this things I love most is the connection with and focus on the environment, nature and animals. I have always felt a deep connection with animals, and my three cats have taught me more about myself and human nature than anything else. Everyday, I am blown away by my bond with Milo, Lily and Spike. I know which meows mean what, and they understand me, and respond to me. An example of what amazes me so much about my bond with my animal companions: We moved to the house I love in now about a year ago, from the place I had lived in for my whole life. I was not doing well with the move, and was extremely homesick, and for the first few months, at least one would sleep with me at night (they normally like their space at night ) And through out the day they seemed to orbit around me, ready to spring purring into my lap if I seemed to need them. I was so amazed that they cared so much about my happiness. I just felt this healing energy emanating from them. Here I had totally uprooted their lives as well as mine, and they were taking care of me!
Okay, that was longer than I though it would be! I just wanted to put out a little tribute to my kitty companions
