What We Can Learn From Cats

Why is it called a copycat and not a copydog?

It is because kittens learn by imitating the behaviour of their mother.

Similarly, children learn by imitating the behaviour of their parents. Thus, it is of utmost importance that parents set a good example for their children.

Below is a story about a kitten and its mother.

One day, the cat mother told its kitten to go and find its own food as it had grown up.

“But, mama… what can I eat?” asked the frightened kitten.

“Mama cannot tell you clearly now. Tell you what, in these few days, you hide on the roof top, between the pillars and among the containers, listen carefully to humans’ conversation, they will teach you.”

On the first day, the kitten hid between the pillars and heard an adult telling a child: “Boy, keep the fish and milk in the fridge, kittens love fish and milk.”

On the second day, the kitten hid among the containers and heard a woman telling a man: “Dear, can you keep the sausages properly? Don’t let the kittens eat them.”

On the third day, the kitten hid on the roof top and heard a woman scolding a child: “I told you to keep the cheese and anchovies if you cannot finish them. Kittens have good sense of smell, if you don’t keep them, you won’t have them tomorrow.”

So, the kitten went home and told its mum: “Mama, as long as I keep listening, people will teach me what to eat everyday.”

The moral of the story is “Listen to learn life skills.” Life is like that, people will not teach you something on purpose. If you want to learn, listen to others and watch how they do. Be humble, you will learn a lot more.

 “As long as I keep listening, people will teach me.”
