Relationship lessons from my cat

What I've learned from my cat

Like so many cat owners, I got my cat from a friend who no longer wanted to keep her. After living alone for so long, having a cat around my home was a bit of an adjustment for me. I’m sure it was a challenge for the cat too! After a couple of weeks I found that Zena, my cat, is a lot smarter than I gave her credit for. She seems to understand the way relationships work in a way that I often over look. A year later these are some of the lessons about relationships I have learned from Zena.

If you do something wrong, keep a low profile until the opportunity to make amends and snuggle comes along.

After angering someone give them some time to cool off. An opportunity to make amends always presents itself. When it does come along, take full advantage of it.

After a hard day, there is nothing like relaxing in the sun!

Work hard, play hard, or get some rest sleep! It will provide energy for your next project.

Sharing is important. If you don't share, no one will play with you.

Sharing your gifts with other not only attracts new friends, it makes time together much more fun. Your friends will also develop the desire to share their gifts with you.

A cold day is a great excuse to snuggle with the person you love!

We all like a little “snuggle” time. Take advantage of your chance to get close to the one you love, animal or human. It will deepen you relationships and bring you closer together.

I understand that cats are not the animal companion for everyone. However, when you apply these simple lessons to your relationships with someone special in your life it will bring you a lifetime of happiness.

Awwwwww, this is so short and sweet and to the point! I love it! Cats are fabulous companions and because they are individual, unique and conditional at times, they surely do teach us a thing or two about how to behave! I love the human / cat comparisons in relationships. UP and all the rest!!
