Oh, yes, he is precious, pegasus. That is the word for it. And, yes, he provides stability, because he's *always* there for me, every single day when I come home. And he's *always* happy to see me, and he pretty much always acts the same (meows, crawls along the edge of the couch to greet me, meows some more, wants to be petted, purrs). It's reassuring, that happy routine, and him wanting and needing me (and never treating me badly).

It's so reassuring to me to know that I'm not alone in worrying that my cat will die when I'm not here, etc. You're right, too, Dinah, that people who don't get attached to animals just don't get it. (I actually think maybe my stepmother's making an issue about the cat because she's annoyed at me for caring so much about an animal, because she doesn't get it. And the worst part is that when you try to explain your feelings about an animal to someone like that, they just think you're crazy, which makes matters worse.)
