I want to give you all my recipe for happiness!
I’ll bet you didn’t think cats keep recipes did you? I didn’t think so. Well, you’re right. We don’t. We’re too busy chasing mice and those delicious little delicacies that hover around the hummingbird feeders, and running from the little 2 – legged monsters that are louder than a flipping jet engine.
But we have to cope somehow, right? How do we do it? Well, here’s one of my favorite ways of coping- One of my favorite things to do is sneak up on Sushi while she’s sleeping and swat the holy fleas right off her.
*note*- I never said Sushi likes it. I just like doing it. It’s a great stress reliever-

It could be hazardous to your health.
Seriously though- You have to make time for FUN! Take time to unwind and relax. You humans seem to have a really hard time with that – but one thing my humans have found that really helps them is taking time to do something they enjoy (like feeding me treats).
And don’t watch the news. It’s hazardous to your health! I mean, really- why bother? It’s always the same stressful nonsense anyway. Just record it and replay it for a few weeks, and you’ll see it rarely changes. So, skip it. Instead, focus your thoughts on all the things in your life that you are thankful for. If you can’t think of anything, go visit someone who’s worse off than you, and all of a sudden you’ll see a ton of things to be thankful for in your own life.
Also remember- all the things that are so stressful right now won’t go on forever. Things will get better. Love your families. Be kind to others. BE the change you want to see in the world. Don’t be overcome by darkness, but overcome the darkness with light.
And one more thing- don’t go around swatting people who aren’t messing with you. That only works if you’re a cat.
