Dharma kitty

Post by KathyLauren » Sun Jan 21, 2018 4:41 pm

We just adopted a new kitty from the SPCA. He is about 5 years old and is very mellow. His name is Milo, though my wife reserves the right to change his name.

Apparently, he even likes meditation:

As you can see, he is making himself at home.

Gorgeous. Long tail! Orange cats are soooooo friendly and calm (with humans). Our guy looks very similar.

May you enjoy each other. :-)

Excellent!

Ginger cats are the best.

We have an orange cat (female, stray) that adopted us recently. She is the unfriendliest cat I have ever seen. She only lets you feed her, if you try and stroke her she sticks the nails in straight away.

Mala moggy. :)

Animals and shrines and mantras..........personally I have no doubt at their instictive attraction to such things.

Your Dharma kitty is a bit wrathful and each scratch a blessing :twisted:

I meant male orange cats are friendly. Never knew a lady orange ...

Perhaps she's a dakini or dharmapala...

I have a Dharma kitty, too. Tulpa :) She wants to sit in your lap if you say mantras and lay right ahead of you if you are doing prostrations. I keep her away by shaking a mandala pan. Then she leaps away (she's just being dramatic), until the next practice session.

My dharma kitty finds me meditating and climbs on me, or rummages around noisily, or if I have a candle out tries to see how close he can get his paw to it. Oh friend.

I'm glad to read that you and your kitty are getting along. I adopted a stray kitten in November, a ginger as well. I give her many snugglez and she follows me around the house when she's not sleepy. :heart:

The four means of converting beings to the Dharma are generosity (which itself as four aspects: giving material gifts, conferring fearlessness, loving kindness and teaching Dharma), pleasant speech, conduct and setting an example.

Orange males have in my experience always been delightful ... with humans! Our orange guy is, well let's say, a bit overenthusiastic with other cats. ;-)
