Everyday people can learn many things about life by watching their pets. How watching them can lead to learning about contentment.

Sleeping and Eating and Watching television equals contentment

Pets are content with their lives most of the time in my opinion. All they want is food to eat and a place to sleep, and someone to give them a little attention. They really do not care about material things, except for enjoying playing in boxes which is of no expense.

My cats show me daily why people should be happy with what they have and not try to find enjoyment in more expensive ways. Pets in general don’t care if they watch TV. Some pets do seem to enjoy watching TV for various reasons. My cats only really enjoy watching the tape I have about bird attractions. They will even try climbing up on the television to see more about their interest.

The Simple Things that Make Pets Happy

The simple things that make my cats happy. They are:

Curling up beside my daughter and I and love getting petted

They enjoy wrestling with one another playfully

Playing in boxes

Playing with cat toys

At Christmas time they loved to try laying on my Christmas packages as I wrapped them. All these things are inexpensive but were quite amusing for them. I think they enjoyed the sound it made when they played on them. The crinkling sounds spiked their curious nature.

Observing pets

If people today would observe their pets and see how ease it is for them to feel satisfied they may understand about contentment. The most important thing in my opinion that pets in general want is to be around people that love them.

People could try thinking about their lives in a more relaxed and contented fashion. To feel contentment leads to being contented in other ways. People that feel contented don’t usually have trouble controlling their finances.

Our cats always try to get outside; however they know they are not going to be let outside. Once again that type of enjoyment that some pets get to do is still one that is inexpensive. Pets do not care about what is expensive and what is not.
For example:

Most pets love to chew on shoes. They really do not care if it is old or new. They are contented just chewing on any type of shoe. Many people today must have expensive made shoes. This habit can be very expensive and lead to many more addictive habits down the line

People could learn a lesson from their pets and their love for chewing on their shoes. Shoes can be almost any brand or style but as long as it covers their feet they should feel better. Good shoes are a good thing to have if it is affordable.

Contentment can be a part of all of us if we learn to be satisfied with what we have and if we do have more never keep trying for more. Greed always turns ugly!
The next time you feel contentment is not within you look at your pet if you have one. If you do not have one look long and hard at what makes them happy. Their behavior should spark new behavior within yourself.They never seem to worry about their lives in general they only want to feel secure in it

Learn the lesson about contentment today from your loving pets.

Zinger the Cat and A Wig

I was playing one day with my cat Zinger and decided to have some fun and put a wig on him and see how he would react. That was alot of fun! That type of playful interaction can teach the world to be more satisfied while doing things of this nature.

A fine article. However, learning something from animals hurts my ego as I think they can never be equals to humans.

yes they ask for little and are very content, but everything is done for them. They don't have to worry about their job and how to make a living and the myriad of things that humans are faced with everyday of their life.

But great article and I agree with you
