A Feline Guide to Stress-free Living

Last week I discussed how much humans worry about silly things like clothes. I’ve also noticed you worry about pop quizzes in math. And who’s going to win the three-legged race during field day. And many other silly things.

Felines do not have this problem. Why not, you ask? Because we know how to relax. You people continually have to DO, DO, DO. You never take time to BE.

On the other hand, your average feline is born knowing how to BE, as you can see from this picture of Misty, one of Cindy’s real cats.

Because cats are so good at BE-ing, we don’t suffer from stress related ailments like humans do. Let me give you a few pointers on how to relax like a cat. Read and learn:

Lie in a sunny place and watch an ant crawl across the ground. Whack it with one paw. Take a quick power nap to get your energy back after so much grueling exertion.

Amble to your food bowl. It’s important to keep up your strength with proper nourishment! Flop down for another nap.

Wake up and yawn widely. Lean back on your haunches and s-t-r-e-t-c-h, this really gets your blood flowing.

Stalk one of those infernal squirrels scampering across the lawn, chittering insults at you. Yowl, “You’re going DOWN, Tail Flicker!” and chase him up a tree. Slide down the tree trunk while your quarry escapes, laughing hysterically. Curse your humans who insist on
trimming your claws down to little nubs.

Sorry. Forget that whole squirrel thing. I meant to say, close your eyes and meditate on the grass growing and the sounds of worms working underground.

See how easy it is? I bet you feel better already, don’t you? You’re welcome!
