We have an example in Japan. In this country the figure of the cat is as admired as it is respected. They are a symbol of good luck, and how could it be otherwise, they rose up as the pioneers in developing those centers that we all now know as “cat libraries”, already extended throughout almost the entire world.
They were the first to create “a cat cafe”, opened in Taiwan in 1998. The purpose? Very simple. Japan is a highly industrialized and work-oriented country. The working hours are very intense and it is common for the population to suffer from stress and why not say it, from some other lack and emotional need with which to vent, free themselves ...
Petting a cat is a cathartic act. It regulates stress, improves cardiovascular health by relativizing the mind, and in turn, offers a sincere opportunity to express affection and let yourself be enveloped by one of the most captivating animals that humans have ever domesticated. (Or maybe it's the other way around, we don't know.)
Let's delve into feline psychology today understanding a little more what these animals can offer us.
Its beauty attracts you but its personality captivates you
The cat, unlike dogs, does not belong to anyone but themselves. Moreover, we are the ones who remain captive of his arts, of his leadership of his sibylline charm, that which understands spaces, and of a love where there is no dependence but absolute fidelity.
In fact, entire manuals could be written on feline psychology. And while it is true that the first thing that is said about them is that they are selfish and independent, in reality, it is never entirely true. Hence the interesting nature of its nature, hence the interest it arouses in us.
The cat will love us, respect us and defend us as his own family. They are possessive in terms of their spaces, their routines and also their owners, however, they know how to keep their distances very well without being suffocated or completely dependent on us.
They enjoy being pampered and almost adored, they seek daily affection but when they demand it, the limit appears and they take off to praise their careful elegance and independence. And yes, you may be struck by the sincere sparkle in their eyes, or their calming and therapeutic purr, but what we really like about cats is their personality.
Cats are great meditators
We live in a world marked by those sometimes useless priorities that make us detach ourselves from what is really important: sunlight, tranquility, ourselves, those we love ...
We get wrapped up in tricks, problems sometimes unimportant, we accumulate things and lose sight of storing life, experiences, emotions ...
For them, for cats, the world follows the rhythm it should. Life is slow, it is measured by moments of rest in the sun, by afternoons on the couch next to us, by excursions where we seek the limit to learn and browse. They are wise creatures who open their gazes to the world like windows full of light and hope.
It is sometimes said that cats are great connoisseurs of the world of yoga. They can spend long hours meditating in front of a window or a bowl of water. What truths will your senses glimpse? What realities will we humans escape?
They go from the immobility of their own world, from their own introspection to action in little more than a second. They move between the dimensions of reflection and activity so quickly that they admire us and take our breath away.
And the endearing thing is that each thing they do, they do with all their senses, which will surely not be five, but 6, because their intuition, their ability to go to our lap when a human needs it most, is undoubtedly a virtue that only they have.
Not only crazy people have cats ...
Who said that every madman has a hundred cats? Cats are wise and serene creatures that make life richer, simpler and more intense for anyone who wants to experience what it is like to live with an animal with this personality.
They are ideal for children, for the elderly, they are faithful companions for quiet afternoons, moments of relaxation in bed and excellent comrades to live with and learn from every day.
Cats are sovereign individuals, with their own ideas about everything ... and that includes the people in their possession
