12 Things I Learned From My Cat


The new year is all about looking back on the things you've learned and looking forward at the things to come.

So now, I'm looking back at all the life lessons I've learned from my cat!



#1: Take naps.

#2: Bask in the sun.

#3: Eat food you love.

#4: You're beautiful. Anyone who disagrees are litter box scoopers.

#5: Take time to play!

#6: A good death glare will take you far in life.

#7: Size doesn't matter in life. Only how determined you are and how big your heart is.

#8: It's important to have claws and be able to use them, but its also important to know when to retract them and pad soft footed. Like when stealing food. dealing with sad people.

#9: Go a little crazy sometimes.

#10: Don't be afraid to let someone know you love them. If they don't like you, bite them!

#11: If someone is making you uncomfortable, tell them.

#12: If they touch you without permission MAKE THEM BLEED!



And all you girls out there should go check out this blog, The Cornered Cat.
 Stay safe out there.

  1. What?? You can't learn from a cat. You can only learn from a dog, obviously. XD (I'm just kidding. But for real, cats hate me...)

    That website you linked is awesome. Even though its cat themed, I bookmarked it because I've been wanting to learn more about guns and self-defense. So thanks for linking that. <3

    Great post. *coughs* Dogs are better *cough* XD XD

    1. Yay! I knew some of you would like the Cornered Cat. (I really like her cat mentality toward it...)

      *cough* cats *cough*

      *coughs* are we going to do this every time I post about cats? *cough*

      *cough* cough is such a weird looking word *cough*

    2. *cough* dogs *cough*

      *cough* I don't know, probably *cough*

      *cough* I agree, it is weird *cough* XD

      I respect some people prefer cats. To be honest, I used to be afraid of dogs. Now, I can't imagine my life without my puppy. Except, he's four, but he still acts like a puppy. XD

  5. I wasn't originally a cat person (I'm a full-on Equestrian) until this scraggly, ugly cat showed up where I work. Well...he stuck around, and now I can't imagine life without him!

    He doesn't have claws, but man, can he bite!

    1. I have a cat like that...

      We have a lot of cats, but this one stray showed up...His foot was infected, so I took care of it and fed him...and now he is the most annoying thing ever and follows me constantly.

      No good deed goes unpunished.

      Every time someone refers to them by their number, I have to frantically scroll up like, what was it? Oh, yeah. Yeah that. *nods sagely*

  8. Number 6. That is so true . . . a snarky remark makes it even better when you're just trying to get them to Stop. Talking.

    Dogs are still better, though. ;D

    1. I was actually counting COMMENTERS

    2. Well then...Time to go make a bunch of accounts and comment dogs are better. XD

      Delete
    3. That would be considered cheating...but only if you were caught.

      Which you would be unless you started the posts now, posted all the time from those accounts, came and followed my blog in six months, scrolled back to this post and THEN commented.

      Delete
    4. That sounds like far too much work. I guess we'll just have to settle for knowing dogs' superiority and hoping you'll come around. XD Or, we could just agree to disagree and stop fighting like . . . cats and dogs. *cue groans*

    5. Or we could all be forced to watch Cats V Dogs II and sing Why Can't We Be Friends until we get along...

    8. MK!!!! It HAS been a long time hasn't it...

      (*hushed tones* Cats are the best! Mine likes to stay in my room when I'm gone, acting all sad. Then when I come home, he stalks me. He's my little dragon. *scoops up the fat little puff ball*)

      Delete
    9. It has. And fat little puff ball is THE. BEST. WAY. to describe a cat

      Delete
    10. You people and your obsession with the furry monsters that are plotting world takeovers.

      Delete
    11. Mate, I'm plotting world takeover.

      Delete
    12. Exactly. You don't need any competition.

      Also, they're sharp.

      Delete
    13. It is! Do you have any fat little puff balls?

      Delete
    14. They're only sharp if they're aggravated, which we have to admit is our faults most of the time! xP

      Delete
    15. In my experience, they poke unprovoked. Then again, I was holding its toy mouse . . .

      Delete
    16. I would consider that provoking :P

      Delete
    17. I was trying to throw it across the room for the kitten to chase.

      Delete
    18. It was hungry for catnip *considering the mouse has catnip*

      Delete
    19. Maybe? It seemed like it just wanted to draw blood. :)

      Delete
    20. They can be savage, I have to admit.

      Delete
    21. Buuuut, so many cats have saved little toddlers from bloodthirsty dogs. *nods*

      Delete
    22. Yes LHE, I do have cats. And they are the MOST AMAZING THING EVER!

      Delete
    23. I know it can be hard to deal with these bloodthirsty animals, but I know you can persevere through this. XD
