People believe they are the smartest and the most developed creatures on mother Earth, and it is true in a lot of aspects. However, one cannot deny, that animals are closer to nature, than we are, and in some aspects it can be useful to watch them and learn from them. So, do you want to find out what are the life-lessons your cat can teach you?
- Ask for something you want
What does your cat do when it is hungry? It comes to you and meows, letting you know something is wrong. It rushes to the place where you keep its food so you know what exactly it is that it wants. The same rule applies to your life as well. People do not know when you need something until you give them a hint or – better – tell them directly. Surely, you feed your cat every morning, and it has already become a habit. Be grateful to people who give you the things you need without you asking for it, as a person can only be blessed with few people like this.
- Show when you like something
What does your cat do when it likes the way you pet it? It purrs and closes its eyes, enjoying the process. Show people that you like something, share how happy it makes you feel, and you are granted to receive more of it.
- Do not pretend
Have you ever seen your cat eating something it doesn’t like? Most likely, your cat would just ignore it and you would have to clean up after it. The same goes for you forcing yourself to do something you don’t feel like doing. If you know, that this particular food, activity or person does not make you feel satisfied, there is only one solution to the situation – don’t get involved. On the other hand, if a cat is really hungry, it will eat whatever seems eatable at the moment. The hard part is to tell whether it is time to force yourself to accept something or not.
- Sometimes everything you need to look good is to get enough sleep
Cats teach us how important it is to have rest and enough sleep. How many people around you don’t like cats? How many don’t think they are cute and simply nice to look at? Most likely, there are not many. The universal beauty secret that all cats know is to have a good sleep and there is no need to tell how important appearance is in a modern world.
- Sometimes the best solution is to leave it be
What does a cat do when it sees that it takes too much effort to achieve something? It loses its interest and wanders around searching for something else to draw their attention. Some things are simply not worth fighting for. It requires quite a piece of knowledge to tell if you should try hard to achieve the goal you have set or not, but once you have found the way to do it, your life will change greatly.
