So very purrfectly true, a cat's behaviour reminds one to take time out and smell the roses and the catnip and enjoy their feline gracefulness.

That's one example of how we're bound to other forms of life

They always give peace of mind when I get home, its like stepping into another world where there are no problems and everything is in harmony.

My cats rule playtime. Usually after they have eaten, it's nap time (for them). Afterwards, it's where's the ball? Where's the toy I can't find....we then go through an under each couch, bed, search for the "I can't get it toy". Actually, I enjoy this.

I'd have to count on my fingers and toes! No doubt about it ~ my cats keep me sane (the medication helps a little too!).

I think Allan is right, we enjoy chasing the toys and playing with the cats because there is no stress or demands just pure joy.

OMG, Allan, LOL! We play a version of that game. The toy goes under the stove (!!!) so Mom has to take out the whole drawer to retrieve it..........and it goes right back under the stove.
Round 2..........Round 3...............
