Your Friend, the Cat

’What greater gift than the love of a cat?’


Cats have fascinated us since time immemorial. We have observed them and attempted to understand their strengths, their qualities, their behaviours, their habits and their compulsions. There is a kind of magic in their ability to live serenely and to be happy — assets that cats naturally possess, and which we can certainly use in our everyday lives, both personal and professional.

Cats follow a philosophy of life that could be summed up in a few words: eat, play, sleep, look out for their comfort, and do only that which pleases them. That’s already a lot compared with us. But there is much more, as you will see.

Cats have a lifestyle that allows them to live without stress, for cats have a single priority: their wellbeing. By bringing ourselves closer to their way of living, we can open up a fresh perspective, a new world view, while gaining a different, deeper understanding of ourselves.

So welcome to the cats’ world view, their thoughts and their philosophy. Learn to appreciate life as they do.
