5 Things My Cat Has Taught Me

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.

  • Adapt

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.
