Feline stressed? Would you like a cat-alyst to purr-fect peace in your life?
Ever watched enviously as your furry friend finds a sunbeam and stretches out on it - on your bed - as you rush to catch the bus? Follow this sound advice, straight from the moggie's mouth, and maybe you can achieve catitude too.
This is a humorous guide to finding and appreciating - cat-style - those peaceful moments amid the chaos and stress of working and domestic life. It's no coincidence that your cat has decided to sleep on your keyboard, or your tax return, or that report you should have finished last week. They're saying, "Pay me attention and why not get me some food while you're at it"... but they're also saying, "Find the stillness within the detail, amid the tumult, of your hectic life. Take some time for you to be you." Probably. This is a cat's guide to beating anxiety, appreciating the moment and being
mindful. So look around you, take some time to smell the catnip, take a lint roller to your hairy trousers, and try some Meowditation.
