    Question Things I've learned from my cat!

    previously when I needed to get through a door; I opened it as best could with one arm; jammed my wheelchair in it which, caused a "commotion; someone would turn . see me and run over and open the door for me to come in/ out; but,since receiving instruction from my cat; I now just sit in front of a door and stare at it until someone comes and asks, would you like to go in/ out? Works every time! What have YOU learned?

    Always be really nice to people who don't like you, it bugs them more than ignoring them

    That no matter what kind of clumsy thing I might do, if I can recover my dignity quickly enough I might convince the onlookers that I meant to do that.

    And this, this is the best of all. Yes I know Hobbes is a tiger but that's just a big kitteh:

    Did you know that if you say the word "GULLIBLE" really softly, it sounds like "ORANGES"?

    If someone won't share their food with you, sneeze on it and it's all yours!

    I've always thought that the world's BEST vacation would be to actually be a cat for a week:

    Napping comfortably for 18 hours per day.
    Food on demand.
    Massage on demand.
    Someone else cleans the bathroom for you.
    Intense entertainment from a ball of tinfoil or a piece of yarn.
    I could kill anyone I wanted and folks would just say, "It's just her natural instincts."

    You jump in the saddle,
    Hold onto the bridle!
    Jump in the line!
