Magellan – True Believer
Do your pets experience separation anxiety when you’re away from home?
My Maine Coons are blessed with round-the-clock human companionship most days. Because they are accustomed to having someone care for them at all times, they tend to experience separation anxiety when one or more of their people are away from home (even for short periods during the normal course of the day). In particular, Magellan does not like it when his parents “abandon” him – even to run essential errands such as grocery shopping! I guess he figures that since his food is delivered to our home each month, there’s no excuse for us to have to go out and hunt food for ourselves!
One thing that seems to bring them great comfort during our absence is surrounding themselves with things they associate with us. Tsunami loves to bury himself in his father’s clothes and shoes (the more aromatic they are, the better!) And Magellan derives great comfort from the Bible.
The Bible says, in James 4:8, to “draw near to God and He will draw near to you”. Over the years, I’ve had several cats who have seemed extra sensitive to the spiritual world around them – including Magellan. At night, Magellan often closes the day with me in prayer. He watches over me as I read and study. He purrs when I read Scripture to him!
In a world that’s filled with so much uncertainty, isn’t it comforting to know that God’s Word can bless and bring rest to all of His creation?
