This Cat Has Ten New Year’s Resolutions: Should We Learn From Them Or Be Very Afraid?
2014 will bring lots of changes, big and small. A lot of us will resolve to quit smoking, lose weight, or write that novel that’s always been on the tip of our brains. Some of us might even follow through. Just as their humans do, cats like to set New Year resolutions. Lets just hope that, like humans, they are weak on willpower and can’t stick to them.
#1 I resolve to guilt my human into a climbing tree by lying about apathetically with all my old toys around me. It’s always good to spoil yourself a little and indulge your wild side.
#4 I resolve to make guilt my human into giving me six treats a day. Who does she think she is, only giving me three? If I mew pitifully enough, she’ll surely give me more so I won’t starve. Get what’s yours!
#5 I resolve to take more and longer naps. I have to save my energy for eating all those extra treats! Spend lots of time relaxing and recharging this year!
#6 I resolve to let my person know that I need a larger bowl for my canned food, by spreading the food on the floor around the bowl, so it looks like the bowl is not big enough. If you have plenty of something, spread the love around. And share with others — maybe.
#8 I resolve to be less naughty. I will only spit furballs at the edge of my human’s bed, so she can feel them beneath her feet without even having to look for them! I will not “hunt” human’s electronics. I will limit attacks on dog to five days a week. Always consider the little things when being kind to others.
#9 I resolve to find the box that fits me just right. Have you found the place where you fit best?
#10 Since my human genuinely does love me, I resolve take some time out of my busy napping and eating schedule to be snuggly at least once a week. It’s always good to devote some special time to give attention to loved ones.
