Is This “Love Cat” with 3 Furry Hearts Trying to Tell Us Something?
By Adam Pick on October 22, 2020
I think you and I would agree that 2020 has been brutal. First, a pandemic. Then, economic fall-out. Riots. Fires. A chaotic presidential election here in America. It doesn’t seem to stop.
During these difficult times, I look for just about anything to conjure good feelings for my wife (who lost her job), my son (who spends 7 hours a days on Zoom), our family, friends, and the patients in our community (who are fighting a war against heart valve disease).
So… When I saw the picture below…
I immediately smiled when I saw the first heart on the cat’s nose.
Then, as my pupils moved down the photo and I saw the heart on the cat’s chest, I thought, “Whoa! That is amazing!”
And then… When I saw the third heart in the cat’s side-by-side arms, I scratched my head and wondered, “Is it possible that this cat… Or, is nature telling us something?”
I realize that might be a BIG stretch.
I completely understand this is probably a wonderful, genetic fluke that expressed multiple hearts inside the gray and white fur of a cat.
But, in these times, I’m okay milking this photo for all its worth.
There is a lot of love around us — if we choose to see it.
As John Lennon wrote about and sang alongside Paul McCartney and George Harrison in the Beatles’ 1967 hit, “All You Need Is Love”.
For example, I love our patient community. I am constantly amazed by your support, your care and your love for one another. In this last week alone, your support for Jerome and for Lisa has “Wow’d” me beyond belief.
Thanks to the “Love Cat” with three hearts for the quick reminder that we’re all in this together.
Keep on tickin’ and meow’ing!
