Mr Midnight and Sir Winston were curled up together on the large mat in the bathroom. The bathroom is usually the warmest room of the house (kitchen excepted) and our bathroom is no exception. “The lads” love the warmth from the floor-central heating and the added bonus of having a large, fluffy mat cosily wedged underneath their purrrson. They both believe that the very idea of being able to chill out in the bathroom is something not to be missed.
By the way, can a cat be classified as a person? If not, excuse the pun above.
You know that humans love to use loud machines – especially in the morning. Their modern appliances are quite disturbing for us cats. Thank goodness daddy doesn´t like the banter on the radio first thing in a morning. The radio´s enough to drive anyone round the bend.
Quite true. Whatever happened to starting a day with peace and quiet and an added slice of decorum first thing in the morning? No wonder people tend to be worn out what with all that interfurrrence going off all the time.
Do you think daddy´s pleased with his appearance? I think he looks quite funny, what with his fur sticking out at all angles under the sun.
I want to feel comfortable before setting foot outside the door and I believe that if one attends to “human groomin” as you so eloquently put it Sir Winston, one adds value to ones appearance. A healthy constitution and a tidy, well-groomed appearance, boosts self-confidence and aids make life that much easier. Afterall, you should both understand, you´re looking after yourselves all the time.
The inner values of a person are important but I believe the outer values also reflect a part of the mentality and character (inner values) of a person.
If one stated such thoughts out loud among humans one would usually be negatively branded. It´s seems to be a human missconception that one is not really allowed to love oneself. People normally believe that one is selfish or egocentric if one cares for oneself too much.
If humans want to love somebody properly then they must first, love themselves. How can a human love somebody else when they are incapable of loving and taking care of themselves?
Precisely. For example, a stewardess in an aeroplane always informs her passangers that in the event of an emergency, one should place an oxygen-mask over ones face BEFORE assisting small children. One puts oneself in a better position if having looked after oneself first.
You have to love yourself!
One should take time to look after oneself because one would not only be looking after oneself, but also others.
Everybody wants to be loved but before we can recieve love, we have to give love. I think that if we want to share and give love then one must know exactly what love is – by having given “love” to ourselves. If we don´t look after ourselves properly then we will not be in a position to “give” or show proper love to somebody else.
It is allowed you know. 🙂
As long as loving yourself stays in a positive, healthy state you don´t have to feel ashamed or guilty.
Can we go to the kitchen and eat some food sticks please?
