Advice for a Happy and Contented Life

 As overheard from a mother cat instructing her kittens...
  • Learn the difference between idleness and repose--one wastes time, the other one luxuriates in it.
  • Never, ever let anyone floss your teeth--unless you're unconscious or dead.
  • No matter what you've done wrong, always try to make it look like the dog did it.
  • Never go to bed with a resentful heart or a dirty face.
  • Inspire whimsy in everyone you meet.
  • Help with making the bed.
  • Help with redecorating, even when no one asks you.
  • Don't be fooled by cat furniture -- tiny beds, cramped baskets, etc -- sold in pet stores. Human furniture is always more plush and comfortable.
  • Treat yourself to a nap in the sock drawer once in awhile.
  • Help with jigsaw puzzles.

The above quotes are found in a wonderful little book written by Leigh W. Rutledge A Cat's Little Instruction Book. Seems to be good advice for anyone -- feline or otherwise.

Here's wishing you all a purr-fectly lovely weekend!
