Romeo the Cat…on Using Your Intuition

August 31, 2015

Today I’m thinking about something wonderful that cats and people have in common – intuition. Going with your gut. Operating by instinct. Listening to that little voice inside your head.

The difference between cats and people, though, is that people don’t always use their intuition. I don’t think it’s because you don’t know how. I think it’s because your intuition is telling you something you don’t want to hear…..

Like, dump that jerk.
Or, get out of the dead end job.
Or, this “quick money” investment smells fishy.

Sometimes I think humans are scared to take chances….

Like, this idea is so crazy it just might work (but you’re too scared to try)
Or, this job pays way less money than you’re used to but there’s something about it…..(but you’re too scared to take the risk)
Or, this relationship isn’t right for you (but you’re scared of being alone)

From a cat’s perspective, this is just plain silliness! If you’re not using your intuition you are wasting a valuable resource for survival. We cats rely on instinct and intuition for pretty much everything.

If someone’s an asshat, we know it. Even if there are treats involved.
If a situation might present danger, we know it. Even if there are treats involved.

Or, on the flip side, have you ever seen a scared cat suddenly come out of hiding for a particular person? That’s intuition at work, telling us it’s safe even though we have no prior experience with that person.

We never ignore our instincts. And neither should you. Pay attention to that little voice in your head. It’s there to guide you, prevent you from making stupid mistakes and keep you from missing out on great opportunities.

Trust me.

Meow for now,

Right on, Romeo! Cats rule etc. Maybe humans act so stupidly because they don’t know how to use their beautiful eyes for personal control as well –

Excellent advice, Romeo. If only the humans would listen to us, they’d have much less stress in their lives.

Very good advice Romeo we are trying to get Mommy to listen to her instincts. She thinks Arty is on our property again but hiding from her but she is scared to let herself believe it.

Romeo, You are such a wise soul. It is a pleasure to hear from you.

That is all so true. Kitties have terrific intuition. Too bad the humans don’t take lessons from us. Wonderful advice. Take care.

So the fact that I got my petrified kitten to eat some raw food last night means he doesn’t think I’m an asshat?? :) Now if I could just stop him from being petrified all the time.

Just more proof that we kitties are smarter than humans, and we have a lot to teach them!

TOO true! Too true. We can smell a (human) rat miles away. Treats or no treats! We think peeps should take their cues from us and go with their gut more often too!

Pawesome advice!
