If you pay attention at all to your cat, you know how much you can learn from her. For example:
Always stretch after a long nap. It’s good for the body as well as the soul.
Never eat just because someone has served you a meal—even if you asked for it.
Sleep when the urge hits—anywhere, anytime.
There are oh, so many lessons our cats attempt to teach us—patience, how to ask for what you want, persistence usually pays off, play when the urge strikes no matter what time of day or night, there are right ways and wrong ways to stroke a cat, and of course there’s the old tried and true: if you want the best seat in the house, you’ll have to move the cat.
One of my daughters gave me a sweet book filled with “Things My Cat Has Taught Me.” Here are a few:
“Take chances. Act as if you have eight more lives left.”
“The world is as big as you are brave.”
“Be fearless, but have an escape plan.”
“Hiding is more fun than seeking.”
“Watch and wait. The world will present itself to you.”
“You’re never too small to make a difference.”
“You can purr your way out of just about anything.”
I hope this made you smile and say, “Yes—so true.”
