Introduction of book reads:
Create Your Own Domestic Bliss
Cats are highly intelligent creatures. When cats were wild they would spend most of their time relaxing and cat napping, and when they were hungry they would for a short period summon the effort to catch their prey.
Cats are efficient hunters as they have ample time to work things out before doing anything. They are definitely enlightened beings not interested in doing.When humans ‘domesticated’ cats thousands of years ago I don’t think they quite realised just how intelligent cats were. It didn’t take long for cats to show humans who were really the ‘domesticated’ ones.
Have you ever seen a cat work hard? Cats didn’t take long to transform human beings into human ‘doings’ at the beck and call of their feline masters. You may have heard the saying, ‘Dogs have owners, cats have staff’ – cats have all the time in the world because they have worked out how to become the master of the house. In fact, when humans first decided to ‘domesticate’ cats, cats had other plans. Cats became the masters of their new domain. Instead of becoming domesticated, these regal beings, with ease and grace, and without much more than lifting a paw, dominated all what their sleepy eyes surveyed.
So what are some of the lessons you can learn from cats? Firstly, that life is too short to rush around and you could do well to take a leaf out of a cat’s book and slow right down. Cats subscribe to the 80/20 rule of life. 80% of the time is best spent taking it easy, and 20% instructing others to do as you please. All this ample time gives them the means to build up their intelligence. Cats can also teach us that if we take time out regularly to rest and recuperate we will remain healthy and resilient, less stressed and ultimately a lot happier. We human beings can have nine lives too if we learn to spend more time ‘being’ in between all that ‘doing’ that we have become adept to.
Cats are the epitome of purrrfection. In ancient Egypt cats were worshipped as gods. They are graceful in the way they look and move, and luck seems to follow them simply because they have mastered the art of living. Nothing much has changed since ancient Egyptian times. Cats are still worshipped, yet it is time to start taking notes out of the book of cats – slow down, relax more and begin to live up to our birth right as human beings and not human doings. Cats hold the answers to experiencing our own lasting happiness if we only take the time to sit, relax, observe and learn from these purrfectly divine beings.
DID YOU KNOW?
When you purchase this book, you plant a tree in Madagascar. That’s right, for every book you purchase you are helping to make a dramatic impact in the lives of the beautiful wildlife and the people that call this magical island home. Madagascar is the fourth largest island on Earth and over 80% of it’s wildlife are found nowhere else, including all of the world’s lemurs, most of which are critically endangered. Approximately 95% of Madagascar’s forests have been destroyed and many of the people that live there are very poor. Planting trees restores the environment and helps protect the wildlife, but it also gives the people an income and allows them to put food on their plates and send their children to school.
