I have two cats; I am, in fact, a mad cat lady in training. That soubriquet was given to me in fun a few years ago when I first acquired my two rescue kittens.
I like the title (heaven knows, I’ve had much worse). Cats have a lot to teach us; my cats may be a tad atypical as they were rescued at a very young age and were not brought up by a cat, but by me. But then probably all cats think they are human… or rather superior to humans.
This is what I have learned from cats – could be good lessons for you to follow this week end:
3 Life Coaching Lessons from Cats
- Eat and sleep when you need to, not when others think you should.
- If you need a hug ask for one (although not necessarily by rolling on the ground exposing your furry stomach). Let people give you a stroke now and again. And offer the odd snuggle back as you’ll find it results in more hugs.
- To your own self be true. If doing something doesn’t feel right to you, it’s probably not right for you. Trust your instincts and care more about what you think of yourself than what others think of you. Be an individual cool cat!
What life lessons has pet owning taught you? Please share!
