All I Need to Know About Coping With ME I Learned From My Cat
by Celeste and her cat, Keri
Celeste observed these funny feline rules for comfort years ago, but like the wisdom of the cat, they appear to be ageless.
• Just say no. No, you don't want to play catch. No, you don't want to entertain company. No, they are not going to sit where you are lying.
• Know your limitations; don't climb a tree if you don't think you can make it back down again.
• There are things that others can do that you cannot and it's okay. What is the purpose in running after frisbees anyway?
• It's not easy for others to tell when you are not feeling well. After all, you don't look sick. Sulk, lie around in unusual places, meow less, give a look like you're ready to die, and eventually they will catch on.
