Did you know that, in many ways, our pets are smarter than we are? No, really! Okay, they may have a few practices which are questionable at best. But read on – I think you’ll agree. I hope you enjoy this.
- Celebrate EVERYTHING! Don’t wait for the major events in life to have fun. Celebrate even the smallest things that happen in life – a good night’s sleep, that good grade, a sale. You get the picture.
- Just being present is enough. Five years ago, when Jessie was so sick, for such a long time, that she couldn’t even get up from the sofa to walk down the driveway, Sophie snuggled with her. No talks or lectures – after all, she couldn’t. She was just there.
- Napping is good.
- Don’t try so hard. Know thyself. Now we’re talking cats. See, a cat doesn’t clamor for attention or try to please. Enough said.
- You can get along with anybody. Back to the dogs and cats/puppies thing. When you raise different species together, lovingly, they get along. I think that on this topic, humans could learn a thing or two from our pets, hmm???
Now it’s your turn.
What can you learn/have you learned from your pet about life?
