Hi there again,
It didn’t take me long to figure out that there are more reasons why my cat was a better person than I can foresee becoming. So here they are:
4 Unassuming. Magpie the cat was less full of herself, and more observant, seeing what she could do for others.
4a Self-aware (in the good way). She knew where and who she was and how she related to what was going on around her.
5 Positive. I never saw her get stuck into a gripe, whine, moan or whinge session.
6 Calm. Centred in the midst of family life, not always the most tranquil spot.
I have a long way to go but I guess keeping her great qualities in mind keeps me pointed in the right direction.
