20 Rules to Live By:

Things You Can Learn From a Cat

Our pets can teach us many things - if we're willing to listen. They teach us how to love unconditionally, how to look at each day as a new one, to embrace all the good things and why we need to cherish the simple things in life.

Here are some basic lessons our pets endeavor to teach us:

1. Rest and relaxation are the keys to happiness, so relax any chance you get. And don't work too hard.

2. There is always time for a cat nap.

3. The family that sleeps together stays together. Don't be afraid to curl up really close behind your person's knees or in the crook of the neck and purr.

4. Nighttime is the time to party, and it's more fun if you can share it with your family. Howl, meow, play with their ankles, or leap across the bed to wake them up.

5. Spend time with the people you love, especially when they are working. Sit near the computer and purr, walk across the keyboard occasionally, or better still, knock things off the desk one at a time so your person doesn't get bored.

6. Show your favorite people that you love them. Sit on their lap, pet or rub a leg, or run your tail across their faces to get your message across.

7. Get excited and come running every time a special treat or food is available. Showing a little appreciation and enthusiasm will always get you treats.

8. Don't settle for bland, tasteless food; refuse it and you will be fed fancy and expensive food.

9. Stretch and yawn before you get up, no matter what time it is.

10. Enjoy the sun - lie down, roll around and just appreciate the warmth.

11. Purr when you are happy.

12. Cleanliness is next to godliness, so keep yourself clean and pristine.

13. Appreciate a clean bathroom.

14. Enjoy the solace of a view from a nice window.

15. "Making bread" is good for the soul.

16. Be independent.

17. Don't always do what people want you to do.

18. Keep cool. If you don't want to do something, no need to argue - just don't do it.

19. Don't be afraid to look at things from a different perspective occasionally. Sit high on a bookshelf or peek out from under a chair.

20. Expect to be pampered and treated like a prince or princess, and you will be.

Wizard Chase (The Wizards Trilogy)
Until he was 13, Gerrald did not know there was a place called Kimyra. He had not met a walacatoon, a scraler or even a ribek. Then one day he went after a cat in a cave and his life changed forever. The skinny kid was suddenly the leader of alien trekkers on a quest to steal the eyes of a dragon. He would soon discover there was something more powerful than magic, myth or mysticism--and only he knew its name.

Susan - thank you so much, especially for the cat mind-reading tips! We can always use some translation aids in this household for our mysterious guy. Actually, I had thought we weren't seeing you for a while, so either I was mistaken (entirely possible) OR you made time - either way, it is much appreciated.

I put this on a bit late in the last thread so am recopying here for the new day in case anyone needs it.

Kane (A Kane Novel) by Steve Gannon

"From Amazon bestselling author Steve Gannon, a thriller that will keep you up all night . . . but make sure to lock your doors and windows first."
Los Angeles is terrorized by a series of murders. One man can stop the killer: Detective Daniel Kane. But for Kane--devastated by personal tragedy and haunted by a secret that could destroy his family--to do so may cost him everything, even his life . . .

At times chilling, funny, and occasionally brutal, Kane is a nonstop thriller filled with complex characters, surprising twists, and unforgettable scenes. From a political firestorm that sends the investigation spinning out of control to an unexpected, breathtaking climax, Kane will keep you in suspense until the turn of the final heart-pounding page.

I can't remember if this was posted recently, or if it was a different one in the series I saw - or none of the above! Either way, here is a freebie I just found on my wishlist.

Morning Susan
Thank you for the start and I hope that you are taking good note of the Rules to Live By - especially No.1 - well you always have to look after No.1, well at least with a cup of coffee :-)
Are you being able to do No.11 today or do you have to go to work ? in which case I think you should pay attention to No.17

Susan, or anybody else.. I don't get....
15. "Making bread" is good for the soul.

Mrs. Quigley's Kidnapping
By Jean Sheldon
Publication Date: December 20, 2010
When Mattie Draper opened her Chicago detective agency in 1968, she was one of only a handful of female Private Investigators nationwide. For the first three months, her cases offered no greater challenge than finding lost pets and wayward spouses-until someone kidnapped Diana Quigley. In a race to find the missing woman, Mattie tries to untangle the helpful information supplied by a growing lists of suspects.

********
By the author of "A Woman in The Wing" (Biscay thought of you here) The above book seems to be a cozy mystery/whodunit with a female protagonist and from the two reviews sounds like it will be an amusing read.

This book has ASIN No. B004GXB3OE for me but Ammy would not find it with the "Insert a product link" - weird !!

Susan, I do hope that you don't have to go to the office today..
You put in a long hard week already..

Posted on Sep 28, 2013 3:08:36 AM PDT
Good morning Susan, I hope you are going to have time to relax during the weekend...

It is true cats appear to appreciate small things in life. Mine is mostly always content, except maybe when there is a bird on the other side of the window. The attitude described in #20 seems to be working very well for her. But myself, I just love to relax in a ray of sunshine.

Hi Sandy, this is not a picture, but a video of cat making bread...

Good Morning everyone --

I am going to go in to work today - hopefully just a half day. The audit is all of next week, after that hopefully things will calm down,

And just to make my morning a little more interesting - before 6am here and the house phone rings, it's a 1-800 number so of course I ignore it.
Answering machine comes on, it's a medical alert place telling me my aunt who lives 3 miles away pressed the button and now isn't responding to them.
I get dressed and drive over there....like a maniac.

She is sound asleep - she must have rolled over and hit the button... certainly the best possible outcome but an interesting way to start my day :)

I'm back home, will hang around for an hour before heading to work.

Sandy - usually known as cats "kneading".....

and fyi - Allie just decided to puke on the rug.....
she is really so cute :)

Susan says:
Red - I'll get caught up on those rules....soon.

You should know that I have increased the amount of coffee I've been drinking this week - I may be up to 6 or 8 a day - that's closer to you, isn't it?

In reply to an earlier post on Sep 28, 2013 3:27:29 AM PDT
If the claws weren't sharp that could feel real good on my back.

Posted on Sep 28, 2013 3:29:52 AM PDT
Susan, I'm so glad that your aunt is ok.. What a way to wake up though..

In reply to an earlier post on Sep 28, 2013 3:36:39 AM PDT
Susan says:
Thanks Sandy - it's a good thing I had a half cup of coffee in me already.

Biscay says:
Oh, my goodness. I don't know what would have been worse, being woken up and having to go, or being at work at a more civilised hour, but very hard to then leave!

She owes you a batch of her best scones with some homemade cumquat jam, then :) (no idea if she's that sort of aunt or not, perhaps a tin of those nice chocolate coated coffee beans will do if not)

You are a good niece, obviously. So glad it was a false alarm - the best type. You must have felt relieved, if rest-robbed.

PS When you said Allie puked on the rug, I must admit I thought you said it quite blithely (really quite cute??!) until I realised I had briefly confused Allie and Amy - !!!! OMG, WTH, then LOL etc. Fortunately it only took a moment to come to my senses.

Posted on Sep 28, 2013 3:45:49 AM PDT
Susan says:
Biscay - she would be happy to feed me if I let her, I'm not sure if she will even realize I was there, because she is going to feel bad. I'll call her in a little bit...at a more civilized hour :)
I was just up - for 20 minutes or so - one way to get the adrenaline going.

And Amy and Allie - I do tend to mix up their names, too. though Amy hasn't puked on the floor yet... :)

Susan says:
I wish I could just roll around in the sunshine, too....maybe later,
It is supposed to be nice today.

@ Susan
So there is one redeeming factor for the weekend for you - thank goodness.
Sorry you had that rough start to the day and glad that your Aunt is well after all.
You and Biscay make me laugh ;-)

rolling around in the Sun?
What's better than that? :)

I'm headed in to work but can check in there....
