Don't just pet your cat.
Enjoy the softness of its fur
Feel the movement of its skin beneath the fur
Notice the muscles and firmness of its body
Sense the vibrations of and even listen to its purring
Dance with the weight of its paws standing on your leg
Share the joy the cat experiences while being pet
With no expectations, no worries about the past or the future
Be mindful when you pet your cat
And smile with your pleasure at having one.
