We’ll be back with fresh content on Wednesday.
It’s Mondays With Merlin and unless you’ve been living under the litter pan, you know Dec. 21 is supposed to be the end of the world, at least according to the Mayan calendar. Here’s a feline secret cats know. Ask your cat for the dirt or come close. Closer. Can you hear me purring? Good. The world is not ending on Friday or anytime soon. That said, this is what I know for sure. It will be the the winter solstice, the first day of winter and a full moon on December 21. It will be an intense week energy wise.
So what does this mean for you dear cat lover? I would wake up and smell the catnip. Slow down. No really slow down. Unplug from digital devices for more than 3 minutes. Do less. Way less. Don’t buy your sister’s (fill in the blank) ex-boyfriend’s cousin a gift or go to their party if you really don’t want to do. Snuggle with a cat more. A lot more. The world may not end but things do change. Do more of what you love and what really matters because guess what, life is short. Unless they’re handing out miracles, this will likely be my last Christmas.
My mom, Layla has been working so hard I had to teach her a lesson. Hehehehe. We cats are good at that. I haven’t been sleeping with her and she felt awful about it, but it was the only way to wake her up. So yesterday afternoon while she was working through her crazy long to-do list I began vomiting in my litter box. That got her attention. She scooped me up and snuggled with me under the covers. Just like old times. She asked me what I wanted and I said MORE. So we snuggled for the rest of the afternoon while dozens of emails sat unanswered and tasks undone. When I finally thought she got it, I got up. Job done. Her to-do list crumpled and she smartly stayed away from Facebook and baked cookies instead.
The moral of the story is your cat(s) have a message for you. Please listen.
