For Christmas I gave Aunty Laura a little book called "A Cat's Little Instruction Book." She recently emailed some of her favourite quotes from it, these ones remind me why I wish I was a cat:
Long naps never go out of fashion.
When depressed or confused try lying on your back with your legs in the air: sometimes the world just looks better upside down.
Find any excuse to run up and down the stairs dementedly.
When in doubt, let your tail do all the talking for you.
If someone breaks into the house when no one else is home, don't be a hero. Leave the heroics to dogs.
