I am Mom's 6th cat since she has been an adult...and after all this time this is what she has learned from all of us:
ALL ANIMALS, EXCEPT MAN, KNOW THAT THE PRINCIPAL BUSINESS OF LIFE IS TO ENJOY IT! MOL yeah.....that is what life is ENJOY AND HAVE FUN!!!!
Live for the moment.
Notice the squirrels, investigate shadows, and chase butterflies.
Make your own hours.
Obey your instincts.
Shred all documents.
Test limits, try new things.
Claw your way to the top. That's what drapes are for.
Get to know people and things in high places.
Be willing to take leaps of faith.
When life knocks you for a loop, land on your feet, lick your wounds, and move on. Take a moment to recover your dignity, but don't dwell on the past.
Don't cry over spilt milk. Lap it all up.
Be tolerant, but not overly accommodating.
Be finicky. They'll try harder to please you.
Project confidence in a mad world.
Variety is the spice of life. One day, ignoring people; the next day annoy them.
Realize that sometimes you can't explain your actions.
Recycle:share your victories. Always give generously. A small bird or rodent on the bed tells them you care.
Make the world your playground.
Get plenty of sleep.
Know all the sunny places.
On hot days, drink lots of water and lie under a shady tree.
Claim you own chair.
Flaunt your hair loss.
Life is hard; then you nap.
Don't stress out over your first gray whisker.
Don't let anything or anyone put you out. That's your decision.
Curiosity never killed anything, except maybe a few hours.
It never does any harm to ask for what you want.
Make your mark on the world.
Let sleeping dogs lie.
Own nothing and be owned by nothing.
Meow and the world meows with you. Hiss and you hiss alone.
Self-esteem is good. Being placed on a pedestal is not just a privilege. It's a right.
Now I wonder why did it take Mom so long to learn all of these...6 cats and she finally figured all of these out...way to go MOM...
Being a cat is the greatest and having a Mom that knows this is great too....now Mom lets go sit in your favorite chair and take a nap.
Those sound like some pretty good rules!
WeBees totally in agreement! MOL!
Those are some great rules to live by!
That is what Mom says they are good rules...she wishes she could live like we do...life would be so much easier for humans if they indeed follow our rules. Think I will work on Mom and get her to try some of them
Love these rules! Pawsome! Off to find a sunny spot!
Mol, we love your list of rules! We are going to show Mommy and give her a test afterwards and see if she passes.
Princess Tu Two, I couldn't have said it better myself, your momcat sounds like our momcat, we simply have the BEST! I love the part of being placed on a pedestal oh how true that was and still is with me and my sisfurs ...don't even ask they are so up on a pedestal sometimes when I am watching them from the earth window I think I will fall out laughing, they like me have momcat wrapped around their paws, thank you for this, we love you!
Congrats to you too on being a DDP!
Hugs From Heaven
Angel Sonny Bono,
and sisfurs Presley & Paris ♥
