Cat Lady No. 340...Loving-Kindness Is Alive and Well

Cat Lady Jolene has a favorite quote about loving-kindness:

Even as a mother
protects with her life
Her child, her only child,
So with a boundless heart
Should one cherish
all living beings.
from the Sutta Nipata, a Buddhist scripture

Jolene and tabby friend Duke have lots of loving-kindness in their hearts today after reading the responses so far in the 365 Cat Ladies Giveaway for December. Readers are asked to complete this phrase: "Peace on earth, goodwill toward____________ ."

Included in the list of recipients of peace and goodwill are:
  • cats, kittens, cat ladies,
  • hermit Crabs, manatees and whales
  • friends, foes and furry felines
  • and mice (submitted by a well-fed house kitty)
