After he is satisfied, Marshmallow will calmly walk to one of the windows and curl up peacefully on the couch or the chair to watch the birds and squirrels in the backyard for a couple of hours. He is okay with where he needs to settle down and get his peaceful sleep, and if it’s not the windows, then it’s anywhere he can nap peacefully.
He would hustle impatiently for food, and once content, he would find a spot and nap. He knows when it’s time to hustle and when to remain content and happy.
I envy him for that.
I often find myself hustling all the time, and when I need to stop and unwind, my non-stop mind continues to nag me and make me feel guilty about resting when there’s so much to do.
Marshmallow, like most cats, has a mind of his own, and he can neither be influenced nor pressured to behave the way we want. When we cuddle him up, he stays calm as long as he wants, and once done with the attention received, he jumps out of our arms and finds a spot to rest.
Life is simple and uncomplicated.
He does what is good for him, and if he doesn’t get what he wants, he moves on to the next.
Marshmellow is just seven months old but behaves like an old monk.
Stay tuned for more.
