Precious Moments With Magellan
Last year, I lost someone near and dear to my heart. The loss was so devastating, I couldn’t share my feelings with anyone. Only my husband knew the depth of my grief and the difficulty I was having moving forward.
To help me during this difficult time, my husband gave me the most tangible gift of love he could find. That gift came wrapped in a beautiful bundle of fur and packaged in the body of an 11-week old Maine Coon kitten.
My withering heart began to blossom from the first moment I laid eyes on that precious gift.
I named my kitten Magellan, after the mighty explorer.
On the night of Magellan’s arrival, I stayed with him in his “safe room” – a special place set up to allow him to comfortably acclimate to his new environment. Although I tossed and turned on the floor all night – the room was a work in progress – I did not want Magellan to spend his first night alone.
Magellan must have appreciated my sacrifice because during that time, the bond between Magellan and I flourished. The next day, Magellan sauntered out of his safe room and into my world, breathing new life into every part of my heart and home.
Needless to say, the two of us are now inseparable.
I love every moment I spend with Magellan – I take none for granted. The moments I cherish most are the moments I hold him in my arms. Because Maine Coons grow so large, it’s been a long time since I’ve held one that fits so perfectly in my arms – particularly a kitten that’s enjoys snuggling as much as Magellan does!
I know Magellan cherishes these moments too. His purrs speak louder than words. But – as an active kitten – I know playtime also ranks high on his list of favorite pastimes!
When it comes to playtime, it’s not about the quantity of toys you have on hand or the amount of money you spent on them – it’s about the quality of the time and the amount of interaction you spend with your pet!
Magellan has a house filled with toys. He’s pretty inventive when it comes to creating his own games. But, Magellan’s favorite games are always the interactive ones that have a human attached to the other end of the toy!
The time that you spend with your pets matters – not just to you but to them as well. Magellan loves following me all around the house and playing in all of my favorite hangouts. But his favorite place to hang out remains the place we first met – the place we first bonded.
His “safe room”.
Newly remodeled, Magellan guards that room vigilantly and considers it his “home within his home”.
When you befriend a kitten, you make a friend for life. Magellan has been with me for 2 months now, and it’s clear that we are forever friends. Every day he reminds me how much our time together matters.
Every day Magellan reminds me it’s the little things – these precious moments – that create a lifetime of friendship and a home filled with precious memories.
