CATLovers: 10 Life lessons learned from cats

Sunday, February 15, 2015

Dearest CATLovers,

Being with cats my entire life gave me an opportunity to get to know and love these cute creatures even more. Least that I know, these cuties I am with ever since makes me realize some things in life. As a cat lover, I don't just interact with cats but also communicate through their language and actions. The cutest simple act of our feline friend will give us life hacks that we never expected. So, I thought of writing some of it. Here are life lessons learned from cats.

And when you do it, do it "Like a Boss!"
1. Rest. We might have thought why cats spend most of their time sleeping but we didn't even bother to ask ourselves why are we not? Yeah, life is so busy that we made so little time to rest like everybody is spontaneous and fast. We should made sure that we have time to rest, just like our cute feline friend loves to do, so that our mind and body will replenish the energy we need for the life's actions.

2. Start from scratch. We've seen them do this maybe on our furniture (if you don't have a scratching post). It is sometimes annoying to some people because it means damage. In life, we all drew our future and started from scratch. What we are today is the sum of all that we started and our own life's scratches.

3. Work hard, play hard. In order to get what you wanted in life, you have to work hard for it. Imagine your feline friend focusing silently towards its prey. If you really want it, you will work hard to get it and the reward is always worth it.

 If you want it, get it. Play time with kitty.

 No, I don't mean "rest in peace". Can you be just quiet? I'm having my siesta.
4.  Live in peace. Minus the hissing and the fight nights (we all have that moments) maybe this applies to many animals, unlike humans, they just do their own thing and let others live peacefully with them. We all have differences but that doesn't mean war for everybody. Let's just all live in peace.

5. Be independent. You may not know it but cats are independent in nature. They usually learn from imitating others. They can survive and live by themselves. This is, I guess, one strong trait that we can learn from cats, to be independent and survive by ourselves.

Enjoy your life, interact with nature, "meow" time.
 Huh? Is that an alien?

6. Stay curious. Cats are known to be curious with every little movements in their surroundings which made them good hunters. Curiosity makes humans discover the unknown. It opens up new possibilities and nurtures our knowledge. Being curious is what keeps us interested.

7. Reach your limits. You could do so much better, just do it. Cats gives us limitless possibilities what they could do. You'll never know until you do it.

8. Have time for yourself. Me time or meow time, eh? You don't want to mess with your kitty, if it is her's, it's her's. It doesn't mean you're selfish, you just gotta have something for yourself. For once, it's all about you.

Yeah, you can do it alone.

Hey, is it working? Is it working?

9. Use your charm. No doubt, cats are very charming creatures. For cat lovers you know what I mean, there's something in your feline friend that you can't resist. They're just the cutest. Well, we gotta need to use some of the charm that we have too. While to others, it comes out naturally and to some, it takes a little push to  come out. To top it all, some are lucky enough to have their charm works every time, just like our cats. Meow!
I can be here, like forever.

10. Be happy on simple things. Keeping things simple is the key. If you can be happy with simple things then, you can be happy with almost everything. Our cats nature are bound with living simply for survival, nothing fancy. Keep your standards on happiness low or simply don't set any. For sure, paper bags and boxes are fine to your feline friend.

And if you still don't understand, this one is for you!

So, that's the list. I hope our journey in getting to know our feline friends continue. There will be a lot more  to discover so we should stay as curious, as charming, as simple and the list goes on..just like our cats.

  3. Very nice take on lessons for life using a cat. :) I agree with everything you wrote. Perhaps if I may also add one more thing... REACH YOUR LIMITS. I always believe in the LIMITLESS. It's only a matter of learning how.

  4. I don't own any pet but if I will have to, I will prefer cats. I love their silence most of the time. I can see myself on them in lots of things. haha. Lessons five and six are my favorites! :)

  5. I'm a dog person; but your post just made me want a cat:)
    I love the work-hard-play-hard concept. I know it's so true, because I've if my friend used to have a cat; and she'd always talk about her!

  6. Oh my god, I can totally relate to all these cat-life-teaching-lessons haha I'm a cat lover myself(well animal lover entirely) and I just love how calm cat's are. And if you know me I think I'm the calmest guy you'll ever know haha Lesson learned from cats, "keep calm and chill"

    1. I think we can get along well John! Keep calm and chill, indeed!

  7. Oh , what a sweet post . I am a dog person , but I am looking after my neighbour's 3 cats when she goes on holidays. And my doggy loves her cats too , they actually kiss each other . That is so sweet to see.

  8. Cats are great! Unfortunatly I don't have one. But last year a watched a movie (Omar). It wasn't actually about cats at all, but there just was this one cat. So cute! And eversince I want a cat. (But I already have a dog and guinea pig). The lessons from the cats are great. I think we can really learn from them :)!

  9. I'm not a cat person but a dog person. I don't hate cats. I honestly find them cute and finding life lessons from them is really sweet. For some they may just be animals who linger or lazy but there's more to them than that.

  10. Let me add #11 Cats have a good sense of direction, they can always go back home.

    People need to learn this seriously, because we tend to get lost when we wander a lot in life, we get confused with many things. But we can chose to learn from a cat- to always find our way back.

    1. Yes, I agree. I missed that one. I, myself, most of the time, was lost in directions.

  11. Your cats are awesome! They are so cute! I had one before, his name was Miming the Cat ( my sister gave him that name). My dad rescued him always. He doesn't want to stay at home so he usually leave then go back after a day or two with battle scars. My dad will treat him and he will stay with us until he is fully healed and he will leave again.

    1. I have that one cat same as yours too. The truth is that they are too independent.

  12. Cats! OMG! They are one of the best and tamest pets in the world! Huhuhu! How I miss my kitty who died a few months ago. :( Yup, they really teach you a lot of things, from being independent (and fierce when posing in front of a camera. Hahaha!)
