What I’ve learned from hanging out with my cats:
- Curiosity is essential. Investigate new things.
- Remain alert. Sometimes even the familiar can be unsettling.
- Care for one another. Know when to take time to be alone.
- Sunshine powers the soul. Enjoy basking in warmth and light.
- Use teeth and claws when necessary – and do not when they’re not.
- Get enough sleep.
- Trust is earned. Slowly.
- Take up space unapologetically.
- There is a time to make a stand and a time to run. Discern which is which.
- Self pity is pointless. If you have three legs, learn how to walk on three legs.
- Demand what you need. Loudly, if necessary.
- It’s not the having; it’s the wanting.
- Obstacles make the process more interesting.
- Focus with intensity.
- Survey the terrain from a higher perspective.
- Fear is a state of mind that inhibits or prevents the natural ability to function.
- Even good friends fight once in while.
- Playful bickering appears vicious sometimes, especially to an outside perspective.
- Always notice when something has moved and investigate how that movement has changed it and its environment.
- Play equals vitality. Value those who play with you.
