If you have a pet, you’ll realize that they give you so much wisdom on the way to live life. Although they can’t speak the human language, their instincts are much more advanced and all the more, sometimes that is much more powerful than words.
Look into the eyes of a cat and observe what they are trying to tell us. In fact, #LifeLessonsFromCats became a hashtag because there are so many things that cats do that we, as humans, should adopt and remember in our daily lives!
Cats, as we are all aware, know everything.
Have you ever looked into a cat’s eyes? Then you know this to be true. Cats have all the knowledge of the world in their tiny little paws.
Land on your feet
Cats are experts at landing on their feet, and even though physics might make us fall down, the point is to get back up and keep going.

Cats always prefer the plastic bag or the cardboard box to the actual toy they were gifted. Learn to appreciate the simple things.

This does seem to be a foolproof way to get someone out of bed. Just be warned that it’s not the most polite tactic.

Be direct. #LifeLessonsFromCats

If there’s one thing we can definitely learn from cats, it’s to be direct. Go after what you want. Cats are not about dancing around the issue at hand. If they want attention, they’ll smack you in the face until you give it to them.

This cat gets it. Sometimes you just have to take some time for yourself. Relax. Grab a cup of coffee. Don’t worry about anything for an hour or so.

Look, sometimes in life, you’re going to get stuck. Don’t stress. Cats don’t stress when they’re stuck. They accept where they are and know that soon, things will be better.

Venting is good for you. Cats aren’t afraid to let it all out when they’re upset, and you shouldn’t be either!

It’s even more powerful for a cat to teach you to stand tall because they mostly live on four feet! Standing tall is really an accomplishment for a cat.

You know, I have found that this works really well for cats, but when humans do it, it’s deemed “inappropriate.” So maybe skip this one.
Fall with style

In life, you’re going to fall, but you can always do it with style.

Cats may be beautiful and elegant, but they aren’t always graceful, and you won’t be either. If you’re falling, do it with style.

But like, not your emotions and stuff. Don’t bury those. We want those out in the open. I think he means like, treasures that are important to you. But don’t forget where you buried them.

I don’t think this is the saying, but I get what she means. You want to be the early cat, for sure.
Get lots of sleep

All you need is eight hours of sleep per day, and twelve at night. #LifeLessonsFromCats

Like I said before, 16-20 hours of sleep a day should cut it. On second thought, maybe cats need more sleep than humans…

This is honestly a foolproof plan. Every animal I’ve ever owned has used this tactic on me. And I’ve seen a lot of humans get away with it too.

It’s not nice to be mean, but it’s an unfortunate lesson that often if you are good looking (like cats), you can get away with more.
Ignore people. It makes them want your attention even more. #LifeLessonsFromCats

Sometimes this works, yes. Cats ignore people all the time, and all people want to do is love on their cats. Dogs though, dogs love openly and unconditionally, and I happen to prefer that method.

Just because historically, you don’t get along, that doesn’t mean you have to keep up the feud. Talk to your enemies! Befriend them!

This is very important. If you are going to dole out criticism, make sure you say something nice first. It helps.
