Last year, I got my first cat. It was actually a stray, and we took it in after it kept following us everywhere. Since this was my first pet, I didn’t really know how to take care of him or know how he would act. I didn’t even know what I was going to name him (We opted on kitty because we’re generic) A wise man once said,” You don’t teach the cat, the cat teaches you.” It was during this year that I learned that I want to be a cat. Think about it. All they do is lay around all day and sleep most of the time, and they are adorable. They also can teach humans a lesson or two about how to live life.
- Enjoy the small things
My cat likes to stay in this one room of our house where my siblings and I spend most of our time in. This room is relatively small, but my cat loves it there. He’ll always find a new spot every day in that room to sleep or explore.
- Stay Curious
We all know the phrase, “Curiosity killed the cat,” but a lot of us don’t know the whole phrase which is “Curiosity killed the cat, but satisfaction brought back.” Cats are naturally curious; well, my cat is. He’s always looking around at all the noises and it’s fascinating to watch sometimes.
- Take time to relax and Be selfish
Like I’ve said before, cats sleep a lot, typically 12-16 hours a day. Since cats are naturally nocturnal, this makes a lot more sense. Just like cats need sleep and rest to function, you need sleep and rest to be able to do what you gotta do. By selfish I mean take time for your self. Before you can tend to someone else, you need to have yourself straight and ready. You can’t give what you don’t have.
Sometimes when something changes you have to just go with it. It took my cat about a month to get used to his new home, but now he loves it.
