Learning from the Attitudes of Dogs and Cats
by Ron Kurtus (revised 6 October 2012)
Dogs and cats may have different attitudes toward life and their relationship with people. You might learn something from the following story of a conversation between a dog and a cat.
Questions you may have include:
- What did the dog say?
- What did the cat say?
- What are lessons from their conversation?
This lesson will answer those questions.
A dog and a cat were having a conversation about their homes and the comforts of their lives.
The dog said, "You know, I've really got it made here. I have a master who feeds me, cleans up my litter, and provides me with a nice comfortable home.
My master must be a god."
The cat replied, "I've got it pretty good myself. I have a master who feeds me, cleans up my litter and provides me with a nice comfortable home.
You know, I must be a god!"
It appears that the dog really appreciates the good things received from its master.
On the other hand, this cat feels self-important and expects royal treatment.
You can learn some lessons from this conversation:
- Different types of animals, as well as people have varied attitudes toward their roles in life. This relates to their confidence, esteem and self-image.
- It is good to appreciate what you have.
- Your pets may be talking behind your back!
Have a positive attitude toward things
