life lessons from cats

    1. Act with grace even when you've missed a step.
    2. If you don't know what's going on, it is better to keep silent and appear mysteriously wise.
    3. Conserve energy: get plenty of rest, and be prepared to move quickly when necessary.
    4. Try to look at things from a higher vantage point.
    5. It is better to fall and land on your own feet than never to risk a jump.
    6. There's always something to chase. Choose to your advantage, not to theirs.
    7. Popularity is overrated: Reserve your affection for those who deserve it.
    8. Keep yourself well-groomed.
    9. Clean up your own shit (or if you can't, bury the evidence).
