THINGS MY CAT TAUGHT ME

Today I’d like to share some ways how Casper has impacted my life – resulting in actual change on my part, or just providing me with food for thought and something to aspire to.

Maintaining a healthy diet:

Ruining my breakfast

It’s because of Casper that I’m able to maintain a balanced (in terms of calories) diet. He cares so much about my fitness that he won’t let me consume any extra calories.

Life’s too short to settle:

Casper didn’t like the cat bed my mom brought for him. So no matter what he never used it. He didn’t like the cat food my brother gave him, he never ate it. Eventually he got what wanted. A place on my bed and his favorite food items.

Casper won’t eat the new cat food.

What’s a cat bed? I’ll sleep wherever I want.

Enjoying little things:

People who have ever watched their cats playing endlessly or sitting happily in a basket or sofa watching TV know exactly what I’m talking about. Intellectually, it makes complete sense to me but still it’s the hardest for me to hold onto. If spending time with Casper has taught me anything, it’s that it’s the little moments that make up the majority of our lives and we must learn to appreciate and make the most of them.

Enjoying the heat on a cold winter night.

All lives matter:

Yeah, the only reason some people are still alive out there is that I’m learning patience and self control from Casper. No kidding.

Casper want to eat mom’s pet turtles but he’s fighting the temptation.

Don’t be clingy:

Casper don’t like it. Neither do I.

Oh please! Give me some space.

Do it:

Being a pleaser and because I care too much for people, this is something I’m not very good at. But Casper has never asked if he can sit on my laptop or share my breakfast. He just do what he has to do and then hopes to charm me into forgiving or forgetting. He never has to work much for it though.

Let’s Netflix and chill togather!

I’m sleepy, you can read later.

Love bonds us all:

I learned from Casper to accept the love I have in my life even if it’s not in the way I expected to receive it, along with the importance of being patient (something I continuously have to struggle with).

  1. Hence proved that cats are the best pet and very good teachers as well. They do what they want and don’t care about others and Casper adorably teaches his short tempered and grumpy human owner some patience, kindness and tolerance.
