TIPS FOR ACHIEVING A PURRFECT LIFE

Many of my friends have requested that I write a post about how to live a happy and fulfilling life as I am quite wise and knowledgeable on the subject. So here are my top six tips for living in purrfect harmony.
 
1. A contented cat is a happy cat so learn to be content with what you have in life. It does no good to be yearning for this or that or to be always looking at others and thinking that they have a better life than you or more treats or a bigger garden, thinking like this will only make you miserable! Although, this is not to say that one must make do with what one has and not strive for more, but if you have a dream then you won’t achieve it without first appreciating what you have now in the present and being content. Many cats make the mistake of thinking that if they are content they won’t strive for better, this belief holds no truth and only hinders the journey towards a better life.

2. Do not allow yourself to be a greedy cat. Feline obesity is on the rise and for yowling out loud do you really want to be confined to the house, unable to chase a ball or climb a wall? Do you want to have rolls and rolls of excess flab to lick clean (that’s if you can even reach it)? If you are a sensible cat your answer to my questions will be no! However, I see too many cats scoffing their faces and over eating, well if you are one of them I urge you to stop before it is too late! Don’t waste your life by becoming obese!
No not my food!

3. Keep your pride and self respect intact at all times. Cats are a rather unique species; we are the most proud and self respecting of all the animals in the animal kingdom. We take time to clean ourselves and purrfect our look, we walk and move with eloquence and grace, with our heads held high. However, there are some cats who insist on rebelling against their feline nature, they seldom clean themselves and some even allow the humans to bathe them! Like dogs, some cats pander to human desires- using human lavatories, wearing leads and letting the humans dress them like dolls! They make the rest of us cats look bad and they destroy their own self respect! I find it disgusting and demoralising!
I always carry myself with pride!

4. Learn to love yourself. It is important that you love yourself, if you can’t do this then you will find it impossible to love somebody else. Some cats feel ugly and worthless because they don’t look like the cats on the cat food adverts or in the films, what these cats must realise is that every cat is beautiful in their own unique way. Each day I study my own reflection in the window and I concentrate on my best feature and I repeat the mantra ‘you are a purrfect cat, with a pawsome personality, gorgeous silky fur and striking eyes’, then I tell myself ‘I love you’. I find that this helps me to keep my self esteem and confidence high.

5. If in doubt have a nap. I have come across many a cat suffering from stress and anxiety because they are worrying or are doubting something. I always tell cats in this situation to go and have a nap and then everything will be better when they wake up. They will wake refreshed with an ability to think clearly about their problem. This advice has never failed yet!

6. Share a thought for the strays. Not all cats are lucky enough to have a forever home, many live their life on the streets without comfort or the assurance that they will be regularly fed. Be kind and leave the strays some of your food or invite them to visit your home for a nap.
Not all of us are lucky enough to have a dependable human to hug.

IT’S CATURDAY!

Hello my good friends and new readers and I must not forget those who secretly read my blog without a trace!

As of late my humans have been using the computer non stop for tasks they consider very important. Are they not aware that my blog is the most important thing on earth!?!

This means I have had limited time to use the computer but at last on this fine Caturday I have regained control of the computer! 

I have something to tell all of my blogging buddies, it is something that I have been thinking about a lot recently, it is in regards to the awards. I am always so honoured and overwhelmed to receive awards and I think they are just lovely but they do take up a lot of time and as you now know my time on the computer is precious. I feel that the time I take to put the awards up, nominate and everything else that goes along with the awards is taking away time that I could be looking at my friend’s lovely blogs and catching up with what they have been doing or I could be posting something very interesting for you all on my blog. So I have decided that I will no longer take part in the awards process. If someone wants to nominate me then I will take it as a token of appreciation and I will be very flattered but I will not post the award or nominate etc. I hope that you all understand, I am sure that will. 

I would like to wish you all have a lovely Caturday! My Caturday will be spent catching up with my online friends, gazing out of the front window and napping then later tonight I am hoping a few of my paw pals will be out and about so I can play with them. So tell me, what are your plans this Caturday? Have you anything exciting planned? 

Purrs and high paw fives to everyone who is reading this!

TIME WITH MY PAW PALS

This weekend I have been spending some time with some of my paw pals. First of all yesterday I had a visit from Smokey, he ate some of my food (which I was not pleased about!) and then we played a game of hide and seek and I won! 

Hello Morris! Hello Smokey!

Last night while I was out and about I bumped into my friend Gypsy. We talked about what has happened between us in the past few weeks after our date and both of us agreed that we are happy just being paw pals rather than girlfriend and boyfriend. I invited her into my house as it was quite cold. We hunted around the house for some treats with no luck but then luckily my male human gave us some treats. It was pawsome to see Gypsy again and I am glad that we can still be good paw pals 🙂

Today I relaxed and watched the humans, dogs and cats out of my window, then I went outside and visited some of my human friends and patrolled my territory. The weather was very nice today here in Kent.

I hope that you all had a lovely weekend too!

There's nothing better than looking through the window on a lazy Sunday morning!

GET THE VIOLINS OUT…

Today started off as a very sad Caturday 😦 It started last night when my best friend Smokey who lives next door came to my house to see me.

Smokey had come to me with a message from Gypsy, the lovely lady cat with whom I had enjoyed a romantic date with last Caturday. Smokey informed me that Gypsy does not want another date with me as she is not yet ready for a relationship and just wants to stay friends, she had said that it’s not me it’s her that is the problem. I wonder what she means?! perhaps she has a hygiene problem or a catnip addiction! I didn’t get the impression that she had a problem but some cats can surprise you with these things as we are very secretive in nature. 

Today I decided there was only one thing to do in a heart break situation and that was to get the violin out, and play pizzicato with my teeth! 

And on violin today we have the one and only Morris the cat!

I had such fun it took my mind of my broken heart and helped me to see sense. I don’t want a relationship, I’m a free and independent spirit! I like being a lone ranger and doing my own thing, I was stupid to even consider the idea, so it is a good thing that Gyspy does not want another date 🙂 

So I spent the rest of my Caturday playing and having fun like the brilliant bachelor I am!

A CAT’S DREAM

A cat’s dream,

is such a scream!

Luxurious cuisine,

riding in a limousine,

Pounces so daring,

competitions of staring,

duals with fiends,

cat Kings and Queens.

When a cat dreams,

we go to extremes.

While we nap on the sofa,

we’re fighting a cobra,

lounging on a chair,

we’re up against a bear.

Yes, the dreams of a cat,

really are so damn phat! 

So never underestimate,

your feline house mate!

MY DATE WITH GYPSY…

Last night was my first ever date and I had a brilliant time! My date was with the beautiful lady cat from down the street and her name is Gypsy. 

First of all I had to prepare myself so I cleaned my Tuxedo earlier in the day so that I would be looking my best for the date.

At 8 o’clock I went outside to meet the gorgeous gypsy and she looked purrfect! She was wearing a new collar that Santa Paws had given her and I thought that it really complimented her eyes.

This is the moment I walked out of my door and found her waiting on the balcony.

It was raining very heavily so we decided it would be best for us to have our date on my balcony. It was very romantic! My human brought out some treats for us to share.

After our treats  I insisted that Gypsy sit in the best and most comfortable chair while I sat near her below the chair. I am a proud gentlecat and did not want to make Gyspy feel uncomfortable by getting too close to her too soon. We were both quite shy and nervous but the conversation soon started to flow. We chatted about our favourite food, favourite lounge positions and also about what qualities we look for in a close companion. After the conversation we watched some humans who walked by.

Gypsy then decided it was time for her to go home 😦  I asked her if we could have another date and she replied that she would very much like to and that she will swing by my house again sometime soon for a second date.

Goodbye Gypsy!
Goodbye Gypsy!
Gypsy come back! I miss you already!

Gypsy has gone, when will I see her again?!

I now have a big crush on Gypsy but she hasn’t been back today to see me and I have been looking out of my window all day hoping that she’ll swing by or that I’ll get a glimpse of her. Maybe it is too soon or maybe she’s just not interested in me, perhaps Tuxedo’s aren’t her thing, what if she’s on a date with Ginge right now instead of me?! I’m going crazy!

Tonight I wished upon a star that Gypsy will come back soon and that we will have a second date.
