Love Unconditionally

Loving a dog and being loved back by that dog truly does offer us a way into our own souls. No better put than in the exquisite words of Anatole France, “Until one has loved an animal, a part of one’s soul remains unawakened.” My love for the voiceless grew in parts. The first animal that drew my attention at the tender age of six-seven was the majestic and kind-hearted elephant. I watched this pachyderm showing loyalty towards his human companion on the big screen. It was an instant connect. A physical meeting with this gigantic animal was a far-fetched dream, but the powerful feeling towards it remained etched on my mind. A few years later, I was drawn towards cats. It so happened that a female feline entered our home one fine morning and cuddled with me on my bed. I was not even given a moment to reconsider this strong emotion of love towards her. She was my cushion and I was hers. A few months later she had a litter of kittens whom I loved like my own children. They were our children.
