Emotional & thankful πŸ’šπŸ’Ÿ

Here I am getting emotional over my cat, while there are people who gets emotional over real life issues, their next babies and marriage proposals.

But quite honestly, I’m overwhelmed with thankfulness for receiving this little, not so little, Β furry creature, called Shekinah.

I remember the first time I held her, just looking at her with unbelieve: “Does God really trust me with this incredible cat life.? And oh my, she could have been the plainest kitten, but no, she is darn beautiful. ”


Her character evolved over time, and she went from sleeping at the end of my bed to taking over my bed. She’s become the first being I see when I open my eyes in the morning. She’s become my number 1 expense, whiskas cat food, vet bills and cat vitamin pills. Β She’s made me socialise more, as she occasionally runs to the neighbours house.

We like the same things:

I like coffee, she likes coffee


I like taking baths, she like taking baths

I love round shades, she loves playing with mommy’s shades until she falls asleep

I love relaxing by the window, Β she likes it too

Over the past 3 months she has taught me things could be use for different purposes.

Like my hat can be used as a chair

My face can be used as a scratching carpet

But it’s okay cause she puts up with me. Β She allows me to include her in my pictures, even though she CLEARLY had enough of me.


I also discovered some of her hobbies include DESTROYING the tissue paper

But we share some hobbies such as sleeping

Although she has unique ways of sleeping styles

We both loves shoes

2015-03-28 00.10.16

We both love receiving water bowls for Christmas (her first Christmas present)

2015-03-28 00.38.38

But most importantly we both love God. Some days I fear she contemplates her life before God more than I do.

She gave me the guts to start the blog “Chantal and Shekinah” and 3months later we have over 1000 subscribers. All because of her, I met all of you πŸ’šπŸ’Ÿ

So next time she destroys the milk box, and create a milk swimming pool in my kitchen, I will join her πŸ™‚

  1. Okay, I cannot stop Awwwwwing (if that’s a word, even) your post is full of humor but at the same time super emotional. I’m so glad I found you and subscribed to you, Chantal. You’re an amazing person, and I have soft corners for people who have soft corners for animals. ❀ Lotsa love to Shekinah and you!! ❀


  2. My “furry” family (3 rescued dogs & 1 cat) are my emotional support in some way ; so I understand completely what your “too cute” cat means to you !πŸ’ŸπŸ’–πŸ’Ÿ


  3. Wonderful post Chantal & Shekinah. The last photo is lovely just topping Shekinah in your hat Chantal. My cats loved all the photos. So did I ! R, S & S πŸ˜€ ❀


  4. I used to have a cat too, and he also played a great part in my life, and also shared and often took over my bed, but huge sinus problems have meant i can’t have animals any more, now I feed the birds, and go for long walks in Tokai park, and watch nature there instead. Best wishes and blessings, Charles.


    • Hey Karen!! I actually made a YouTube channel to comment on your video! But alas this weekend has been terrible, but surely tomorrow I’ll be subscribing! I thought I like your eyes the most, but your accent OH MY SOUL, it is incredible. Your husband is indeed lucky!
