They show you the importance of hard work.  Our farm cat works for his breakfast.  Year round.  In the snow.  At night.  Indoors.  Outside.  Every day.  It’s -20 outside and 2am and he’s begging to go outside to hunt.  He knows he has a job to do, and try as we might we cant keep him from it.

Londo and Squirrel 2

They remind you to relax. As hard as they work, they still know that they run faster and jump higher after a good rest.  Take that to heart.

Cats in hay

They show you the importance of perseverence.  Hours into a hunt, the squirrel is treed.  He’ll wait there, testing its patience.  Eventually the critter will grow impatient, and the hunt will continue.  I’ve seen him work a particular prey for 6 hours in a go.  Never give up.

Cat and Mouse

They know how to lead, and how to follow.   Older cats showing younger cats how to hunt for themselves, and transitioning skills across time.

Kittens Love Pie

They don’t know what’s good for them, but we love them anyway.  Our cats love pie.  We also love pie.

Borax and Morels

They know when it’s time to soak up the sun.  The sun is not always shining, enjoy it when it’s here.

They know when it’s time to put away the claws and bring on the snuggles.   Sometimes it’s time to let it all go.
