“A cat has absolute emotional honesty: human beings, for one reason or another, may hide their feelings, but a cat does not.” — Ernest Hemingway

Cats are honest and trust is important to them.

If you earn the love and trust of a cat then you are most likely a really good person. Cats don’t instantly like you, they need to sus you out and decide if you are worthy of their love and attention.

Cats don’t care what you think about them.

Cats really have a “don’t care less” attitude to what you, me or others think about them. They do their thing their way and they will train you to make sure that things are done the way they like it. They don’t judge, nor give a stuff about being judged.

Cats are mediation masters.

Cats can sit in one spot and watch the world go by for hours at a time. They just seem to be happy to be in the moment. Meditation has a long list of health benefits. Perhaps that is what they are doing? Perhaps we need to learn to slow down and contemplate the world more.

Cats have an inbuilt ability to land on their feet, probably because they fall and fail on a regular basis. But it doesn’t stop them from having another go. Cats fail all the time. Its why they have nine lives. They have a resilience that sees them get up and going without looking back. Definitely a trait we could use.

Cats are strategic decision makers.

Cats tend to take their time and not rush into thigs. They ponder things going on around them, pick and choose what will interest them and intentionally decide if this current curiosity is truly worth their attention and effort. Sometimes they will line up their target and then decide whether they will go for it or not. Very rarely rushing into something, they tend to look, think and ponder.

Cats know its ok to go crazy every now and then.

If you have ever had a cat that gets the zoomies you will know exactly what I mean. Cats can go berserk and that’s ok. They don’t care who is looking or what you think of them doing their thing. We should all let loose every now and then.

Cats make us laugh.

Cats are so funny. That is why the internet is full of funny cat videos. Cats can show us how important it is to have fun and laugh. Being themselves gives up hours of entertainment.

Cats are known to be curious.

If we all had curious as our first go to emotion imagine how different the world would be. instead of jumping to conclusions, curiosity might teach us why things happen, why people are the way they are and how things work. Yes they say that curiosity killed the cat, but they do have that 9 lives thing going on.

There are so many great qualities that we can learn from cats. Have I missed out any. Please leave a comment below and let me know if I have.
