This might be the weirdest post I'll be making (for now) but I want to talk about what my cat has taught me about life and how she's done it.
She was adopted before my dog, and we didn't know how she would react. She soon realized that she was definitely smaller than him. The thing she realized along with that was that she had the power to make my dog afraid of her, to the point where he wouldn't mess with her. This is part of what taught me to stick up for myself, even when I know I might be the smaller party. My cat taught me that no matter how small I might be, there is always a hiss or growl to help defend myself and my beliefs.
