Are you a cat person or a dog person? Or maybe you are a horse, turtle, fish or no pet person. Whatever kind of ‘animal’ person you are or are not—you have all seen cats. Cats are amazing creatures, most have fur, but some don’t. Most have claws, but some have their claws taken off and they become house-cats. Most have tails, but some do not. What all cats have in common is their flexibility. Cats love to climb and jump up on things. They love to wind themselves around legs, or furniture. They purr when they are content, and hiss when they are not. They do not do what they do not want to do.
Some people actually want to look like a cat. The sleek feline look of a cat makes them seem sexy to some people. The purring animal with claws can seem tantalizing. The yin and yang of an animal.
When a cat is sleeping it curls up into a ball, and looks so content. Then it will suddenly stretch out and seem twice as long as it really is. Cats are neat, they dig a hole do their business and cover it up. They eat very delicately. They are also very playful.
A cat will chase a feather on a stick for hours. They love to pounce on things. They can also seem very cruel. They seem to play with their victims, a mouse, or a bird; patting it until it gives up; and then the cat brings it as a present to their owner. We had that happen on many occasions; our cat would bring all kinds of small dead creatures and plop them on our front door mat—drove me crazy!
Cats then are quite their own creatures. They don’t seem to care about conventions or rules or obligations. They tip toe through other people’s gardens and curl up on beds and furniture wherever they want. They will purr at you, or ignore you depending on their mood. I’ve even known cats to choose a different owner; walk into a neighbor’s house and start living there if they decide to.
Today, be like a cat. It’s a bit like yesterday, to your own self be true. Today, you can purr or growl. You can choose to stay indoors or go outdoors. You are going to be very clean today—I forgot to mention that—cats are extremely fussy about being clean. You may want to curl up and read a book, or you may want to go hunting for a new piece of jewelry. Whatever it is that you do today, think like a cat. They do not suffer fools gladly—they are who they are and they love being a cat. Today my friend, love being you!!
