I thought I Saw A Pussy Cat

We’ve sort of acquired a cat.

We live in a very quiet Close and have a friend who lives opposite who owns a lovely female black and white cat called Maisie.

When our friend is away my partner takes turns with another friend in feeding her.

However, as cats do she has discovered that I work from home and am around during the day when her owner is out at work.

So she has started to come and visit.

If my front door is open I’ll find she just runs in ahead of me. Or she will sit outside, and cry plaintively as cats do, to be allowed in.

She has even taken to popping round in the evenings.

Her visits are usually brief.

She’ll come in and have a look around, check everything is OK, demand to be made a fuss of and sometimes sit by the fridge in the hope that she might get a tasty morsel.

The other day I couldn’t stand the howling. My office is right beside the front door so I let her in.

She wrapped herself around my ankles as I tried to type. Then she forced her way under the desk and onto my lap and from there onto the keyboard on the desk just to ensure that I absolutely had to make a fuss of her.

Then she left.

Fickle or what?

Well no actually.

It occurs to me that we could take some lessons from our feline friends.

Cats are very focussed. They know what they want and they usually get it.

They have the ability to make their intentions clear and their environment often reacts to them rather than them reacting to their environment.

That’s what we need to do if we want success.

Isolate your dream, that desire you thought you couldn’t reach. Get it firmly fixed in your mind.

Engage with it emotionally – and then go for it.

You’ll find that the path to get there will make itself known to you.

You can achieve great things.

Let the pussy cat inside you become a Tiger!
