FYI--Cats have over one hundred vocal sounds. Dogs only have about ten.


(H. H. Munro)

Confront a child, a puppy and a kitten with sudden danger:
the child will turn instinctively for more assistance,
the puppy will grovel in abject submission,
the kitten will brace its tiny body for a frantic resistance.

What Cats Know About Living the Good Life

Act nonchalant
Be comfortable
Control yourself
Fake what you don't know
Grab at passing opportunities
Have moments of wild abandon
Ignore the ignorant
Jog in your sleep
Knead people
Let it all hang out
Make friends with your neighbors
Nap often
Overstep boundaries
Play with your food
Quietly walk away from trouble
Return to your favorite places
See things others don't
Take your time
Understand human limitations
View things from more than one perspective
Wait at least sixty seconds before responding
X-pect only the best
Yawn and stretch at regular intervals
ZZZZZZZZZin the sunshine
