Did you know over 80% of New Year’s resolutions fail? Most within days and yet humans are fool enough to keep repeating the annual exercise in futility. If resolutions were stock in a company, their ROI would cause bankruptcy. We need to take a lesson from our cats. Cats are far too clever to fall for the humiliation of epic fails. If cats really wanted to make a resolution, they’d succeed because of their feline secret sauce: focus and motivation. If humans could harness the same ability to sit with laser focus on a mouse hole, still as a stone for hours like a cat, they’d lose weight, run a marathon or ditch their loser boyfriend.
No, cats do not and will not make any New Year’s resolutions. They don’t have to. Why fix something not broken? Most cats exude a confidence worthy of emulating. Just watch them walk with their tail high all la dee da. They don’t judge their habits as good or bad. They have no issue with any of their behavior until a human yells at them or worse. They don’t think they smell bad and or look overweight no matter how poochy their belly is. Oh nooooo, you and I might prefer hide behind a curtain than show off a jelly belly, but a cat will roll over and luxuriate, look at my floofy yum belleh slaves. Uh huh.
Cats are clever enough to rule the online and offline worlds. Hello, some cats on Instagram get 30,000 likes in an L.A, minute or if you’re Taylor Swift’s cat Olivia, a cool million+ likes on ONE photo. That’s right. Over a million.
Cats if anything have goals. Our boys opt for #2. our princess has selected #1 and are in collusion with a cat (maybe yours?) for #3.
