Cats for Happiness

Today is hard for me. Here's why: I will miss the Obamas. I accept that I may alienate people by showing my admiration for the outgoing president and his family. But I was raised to believe that kindness and good manners and not being showy or flashy were hallmarks of good character and taste. I believe the Obamas exemplify these virtues. Also, I'm am old enough to remember when almost everyone agreed that these were virtues no matter what your politics were. (And kindness good manners often pay off in fairy tales. See "Toads and Diamonds" for an example: http://tinyurl.com/h5e6ycx.)

(I am not trying to actively discuss politics here. People of all beliefs are welcome at EC, and that includes Trump supporters.)

On sad days, I find cat memes have a magical, positive effect on my mood. So, in the spirit of lifting spirits, here are a few cat memes. Dog lovers, please don't feel offended. I adore dogs as well, but cat memes simply seem to work better in the internet. Here goes:

  1. I don't think at all you need to avoid any topic. No self-censure, anywhere. This is personally the last thing I'll see all day today on the Internet as I try to avoid any news. Thank you for the cats - love the Haters gonna hate!

  3. Sorry, I am more of a dog person. We used to have cats, but my cat used my chairs for a litter box and she was banished to my son's place, who is more tolerant of cat misbehavior. I still like to see cats in action, though, so appreciated the humor.

  4. I've been a cat lover for over 50 years. What I'm about to tell you is just anecdotal, but my experience is that neutered make cats are far more cuddly and much better than female cats with the litter pan.

    If I had a cat who ruined my house, that cat would be re homed, fast!!! And I do love dogs. I have a dachshund grand puppy!

  5. I love cat memes! I have a folder on my desktop for whenever I need a quick boost. One of my favorites is so silly... it's of a kitten on its back with the caption: I surrender to cuddles.

    1. Cats are the greatest cuddlers. People who say cats are loving don't know cats!
