Reverb 12 | Prompt 22 | Lessons

Pets can be wonderful mirrors to examine ourselves, our moods, and our behaviors. What lessons have your pets taught you?

From the cat:

  • Making yourself sick and miserable over a little bit of change makes everyone else miserable.
  • Take time everyday to watch the birds.
  • Naps matter.
  • Balance is the key to reaching things in high places.
  • It’s important to know when to use your claws. More important to know when not to use them.
From the dog: 
  • Every day should begin and end with a big stretch.
  • It’s okay to be silly. 
  • Drink lots of water. 
  • Naps matter.
  • No matter how many things you have of your own, someone else’s things will be much more interesting.
  • Nothing is worth getting to wound up about. Except maybe squirrels. And joggers.
