Mitalee and The Art of Relaxation.

Mitalee , " I was thinking of the next generation. They always seem to be on the go. Climbing this curtain or another. Tearing around the house with t.p. trailing after them. Always in a hurry to get somewhere! Always ascending the next best thing; always trying to catch that all elusive mouse! "

Mitalee , " My generation knows how to unlax , unbend , unwind. We embrace the concept of shlepping along! We rejoice in  dilly-dallying! We are earnest in our attempts to displace unnecessary movement. "

Mitalee , " We know how to BE in the moment. We know how to find peace in the stillness of that moment."

Mitalee , " We understand the importance of bringing everything to a meowling halt. We are experts in The Art of Relaxation. The next generation needs to pay attention.They need to learn to breathe and to hang loose! It's critical and valuable work.We are teaching them by example , patiently waiting for them to catch on ."

Have a Marvelous Monday.
See you soon.

  1. Lucky for us, our cats can pass this on to the humans - if we remember to let them.

  2. Imagine the human do exactly the same like you now...tee..heh...I bet it's not so cute like you do : )

  3. Very wise indeed, Mitalee! The youngsters are always in such a hurry!

    PS: #1 put a little something in the post to you this morning.

  4. You lay back and relax Mitalee - Malou and Levon will spend all day running round which means you'll be left in peace.

  5. Oh Mitalee, you sure do know how to live the good life.That is so great. Tell LP, thanks for telling us the link didn't work to the Cedar Rapids kitties. I fixed it. Take care

  6. We think having a hot radiator helps a lot, too!

  7. Mitalee, you are so wise! You're definitely a kitty after our own hearts. :)

  8. I hope they listen, sweetie, because you seem to have it down pat!

  9. Yes, Mitalee, you are very good as relaxing. I feel more relaxed having just spent these few moments with you. Do keep up the good work.

  10. Mitalee, we has been trying to teach that to Kozmo for 2 years now...will those younglings ever learn?

  11. Mitalee, you are a VERY smart kitty.
    Unlaxed AND smart.
