Happy New Year to all my fellow cats and your humans. I am predicting that 2016 will be a pretty good year for felines and people alike and I wish you health, happiness, peace and lots of pilchards.
Humans do this thing every year, they call it New Year’s resolutions and as far as I can tell, they are things people say they are going to do so that after a couple of weeks they can absolutely not do them.
The most common resolutions I hear from my humans is that they are going to eat healthily and exercise more, and then they seem to forget to do just that, back to cake and watching TV every time. It is quite baffling for us cats but that is humans for you. Complex – they don’t altogether make much sense.
So here are my cat resolutions for 2016 and being a reliable cat, I will stick to them. So cat community, if you want to join me then please feel free.
I will enjoy every day that this year offers. I shall appreciate every leaf, butterfly and glimpse of sun that I get. I will not even let dogs dampen my spirits.
I shall appreciate my food, even when it’s not my favourite. Not every cat is as lucky as me and this year I need to remember that.
I shall shower my humans with affection and ensure they feel good about themselves. I do this anyway but I shall increase my efforts to make them happy.
I will have fun with my friends. Tiger, Snowball, Elvis, Nellie, Rocky and even Tom will be part of my daily quest for living life to the max. Whether they like it or not.
I will exercise regularly. No one needs to be a lazy cat. I shall chase butterflies, climb small trees and run around in circles when necessary.
Most of all I shall count my blessings every day. I am a very lucky cat and anyone who has a roof over their head, food in their bellies and love surrounding them is also incredibly lucky so let 2016 be the year that we all remember that.
Welcome to 2016 and everyone have the best year and be the best cat that you can be!
