An open space for global conversation
Of course, it is not that my cat merely sits all day and all night in a deep deep state of self fulfilling bliss. She eats, she runs around, and together, we play with string. When we begin to play, she is often uncertain; does she want to step into this cycle, does she not? She begins to bat, and eventually to catch the string, then repeatedly. Maybe she feels rewarded for this, as she lifts her head to my hand, string under her paw.
It is not that she doesn't 'enjoy'. Enjoyment must therefore be a helpful aspect of her samsaric adventures. She squawks with delight when I return after a long period of time away; her mew contains deep glee when I open her jar of treats.
She is happy. She is a happy animal.
