9. Cats Are Reserved
When was the last time you saw a cat drink and drive or heard a cat had a party that got too loud and the cops had to come issue a noise complaint? Cats are perfectly content to stay in on a Friday night and not get rowdy, so why can’t we be as well? What’s wrong with curling up on the couch with a good book or movie and then waking up early the next day? Cats have a lifestyle that doesn’t tax their body’s and they probably have less drama in their lives because they are quiet and reserved, often you won’t even know when they are in the room. They don’t need to be the center of attention.
While these cat life lessons are somewhat humorous, it is valuable for us to reflect upon the natural state of other creatures and of the planet and remind ourselves that we are not separate from them. In fact, we can indeed learn a lot from them if we appreciate them and look from a different perspective. The art of being a pet owner is developing a relationship with something that is different from us that we can give to and learn from, in that way, it’s alot like living with humans.
