Cats have so much to teach humans. Follow these five cat rules, and live your best life!
Rule #1: You are one schmexy beast.
Are you a bit on the fluffy side? When someone asks you what kind of shape you are in, do you answer “round”? Does drool or food often end up on your face? Do you have special needs or lack physical prowess? Take it from these cats, it doesn’t matter. You are still one schmexy beast!

Rule #2: Be a Hedonist.
Search out the softest pillows, sit on the most comfortable chairs, smell (or eat) the roses – you deserve it. You too can have all the naps, snuggles and massages you desire! Photos from left to right: @misspicklesthecat, @yanksgal23, @ats_and_nicklas, @brimleycat.
Rule #3: Enjoy food, but be a picky eater.
Most cats I know are just one meal away from complete starvation – just ask them! Still, they won’t eat just anything you place in front of them. Is it the right texture, temperature, and amount? Does it smell and look as it should? Anything less than exactly what you want won’t do. Choose starving over food that doesn’t meet your standards every time!

Rule #4: Playtime isn’t just for kittens.
Whether you are a kitten or a bit long in the tooth – playtime should be an essential part of every day. Never, ever stop having fun! Photos from left to right: @dr_tickles, @omgdeedee, @teagues_n_oliver.
Rule #5: Sometimes you just gotta derp!
Cats are dignified creatures. They also make silly faces, trip and fall, or occasionally do something spastic. When you derp, channel your cat spirit animal and simply smooth your hair after and go on about your day like it didn’t happen. Or refer back to Rule #1.
