If we could live like a cat.


Meet Newkie, our newest pet. I watch her as she adjusts to our new place,  new sounds and new animals all around us.

She is teaching me new tricks.

1. If a place/person makes you feel uncomfortable, move.
2. Rest as long and as often as you wish, in the best possible places.
3. Get up only to play, eat, change position, look for adventures.
4. Listen to your own needs.
5. Train everyone around you to your wants.

Morning Rosaria. It's close to midnight here.
Good observation of a cat attitude of life ....can come like it

Eva Gallant said...

That cat definitely has the right idea!

Grandmother said...

There's some life lessons there!

Suz said...

Ah the felines....they are wise
..and when they need some lovin' or a pet...they reach out and get it
wonderful observation for a newbie kity owner

Hilary said...

Yup, she's pure cat, alright.

becky said...

Ha ha, Rosaria...you've unearthed the secrets to living at the center of the universe. Fun post!

Patricia said...

I have never been a "cat" person...but I have to say I enjoy watching the cat who lives next door. She seems very comfortable in her own skin! :-) Wonderful lessons.

Love Newkie's coloring! And Newkie seems to have the same attitudes as Dulee, and he isn't even a cat! Some good lessons for all of us.

Newkie is a beautiful smart Kitty.

Brian Miller said...

haha...perhaps she can train our new cat...who adds...

6. randomly attack those that walk by then give them a love filled face as if to ask "what?"

Towanda said...

Yes, I always wanted to be a cat. :)

Sounds like she could be a Bear, but smaller sized.
Only, Bears don't bother training People. We're bigger than People, so they mainly get out of the way when Bear wanders in, thereby leaving Bear to do whatever is on his mind.
Life is simple; life is good.

beautiful. animals are so wise - and we would learn a lot about how to be happier if we were to follow their ways more often.

Cats are so sensible. I am trying to follow those instructions too.

Oh, dear... I think I do that already. Beautiful cat.

Dr. Kathy McCoy said...

Yes, we can learn a lot from cats. They really can teach us a lot about caring for ourselves. And they're a great comfort to have around.

As I say: cats have staff.

Donna said...

I read your take action post and this one today-so I took the action of vacuuming and washing the floors-nothing major, but it had to be done.
Then I pampered my inner cat-gave myself a facial and took a nap.
Thanks for the inspiration.

erin said...

what about meow at 1 a.m. 'cause you wanna and then hide under the bed one inch beyond reach! well, that's my cat lately.

sounds like you're learning well, rosaria. go for it!

ds said...

Don't forget "meow loudly until you get attention...then run away" or "sprawl across a lap and become dead weight--you'll have them right where you want them."
Those are my two.
Newkie is training you well--have fun!

P.S. word veri is "dograt" --HA!

G'day Rosaria. Now that's one smart cat. Take care. Liz...

oceangirl said...

Newkie, I really like the name.

rosaria said...

Look at her look when I showed up in this room and saw her at the top of the bed, surrounded by white pillows and white covers.

"What?"
"I can't let you sit here!"
"Why not?"
"Because your fur would be all over the bed!"
"So!!!!!!!!! Stop bothering me!"
"Oh. I'm sorry! I didn't mean to bother you. Carry on. I'll get that package behind your head some other time. Get back to napping. sorry...................................................................."

Kitty Cat said...

She must really like you to be that 'rude' to you. :)
Glad she's adjusting so well... & really happy she's helping you smile.

Marguerite said...

Smart kitty! It sounds like she's got you wrapped around her little finger. :)

Cinner said...

A beautiful cat, yes sounds like the life for sure. have a great weekend.

Lydia said...

Newkie is a beautiful blessing to you now (providing you with lessons that you seem to be learning quite nicely!). I am going to love your posts about her, I do know that! ^.^

Rosie said...

Oh, how true! We have two cats who have trained us well!
