Cats have lived side by side with humans for centuries. These animals are considered wayward, capricious, selfish and out of everything deriving personal gain.
But if you carefully look at the pet and follow its behavior in different situations for some time, then it can be noted that the four-legged companion and people have something to learn.
What exactly? The experts have spoken about it.
The cat is very carefully licked several times a day, that is, it takes care of the beauty and purity of its skin.
He sleeps when he wants; does not follow the owner’s orders if he is not in the mood; calmly changes hobbies, quickly forgetting about those who have already ceased to please and become bored.
Maybe a person should do the same: do not waste time on what is tired, rest when there is a need, and not do what the soul does not lie in, even at the insistent requests of others?
If the pet wants to eat, he will meow, get under the owner’s feet, even lightly bite his legs and stubbornly lead him to an empty bowl. They know what they want to achieve and achieve what they want in every possible way.
Why don’t we, the owners of cats, take an example from them and stubbornly, methodically go towards our goal, not giving up at the first setbacks?
3. Upholding personal boundaries
Furry friends are not always ready to receive affection and attention from us: they can push your hand away with their paw, just go to another place, away from you if you disturb the cat’s peace, and they can bite in case of an unexpected “invasion” on your part.
If you encounter toxic, intrusive people who grossly disturb your peace, behave like cats: leave or interrupt unpleasant conversations without any apology.
4. Independence and pride
Many dislike cats just because of their independent, partly proud behavior. But why shouldn’t a person stop depending on what others say or think, not gain confidence in their rightness, irresistibility, self-worth?
The cat knows that she is loved without any “because”. And you have the right to be loved and appreciated simply for what you are, and do not try to earn this love by becoming a victim of manipulators and abusers.
5. Ability to express dissatisfaction
The cat knows how to express its desires and its dissatisfaction, without worrying at all about the reaction of its masters. He can “warn” everyone out loud that he wants to go to the bathroom, he can jump on your lap and curl up in a ball, asking for affection and attention, he can shake his paw contemptuously and leave if he doesn’t. don’t like the food in the bowl.
Isn’t it time for people to just as openly demonstrate their desires, to talk about what they want and what they can’t stand? Indeed, sometimes it is omissions and silences that become the reason for scandals and parting.
6. Courage in achieving goals
Cats sometimes show desperate courage in achieving what they want. Jump off the balcony for a bird? Easy. Climb a tall tree to save your fur coat from evil dogs? It is also not difficult if there is such a tree nearby.
But cats hardly think or think about the consequences of their actions, but already in fact. Of course, such reckless courage can end in tragedy, but you won’t understand until you try.
Perhaps, sometimes people should not weigh all the pros and cons, not hesitate before making decisions, not doubt, but resolutely rush forward. And bumps and bruises stuffed on the way can be healed later.
7. Ability to deal with adversity
Cats are not inclined to painfully experience their failures, tragedies and injuries. A cat without a paw can also actively run around the house, having only three legs; the kitty, unable to catch the mouse, will soon ambush her again; cats who have lost kittens for some reason come to their senses quite quickly.
A person, too, sometimes needs not to feel sorry for himself, not to consider himself worthless and not to give up his plans and goals, but to pull himself together and start all over again, learn to live and create anew.
