Cat Commandments: Not Just For Cats

Among the letters we have received from readers of the new book God and His Cat are several which commented on The Cat Commandments. It was suggested that if humans would also obey The Cat Commandments, the world would be a much better place.

For those of you who have not yet read God And His Cat, we’re reprinting The Cat Commandments.

The Cat Commandments

I. You shall respect and obey the laws of nature.

II. You shall cherish the gift of life above all else and live life fully and joyfully.

III. You shall use wisely and with humility the unique abilities you have been given by the power that created you.

IV. You shall not hate.

V. You shall forgive, knowing that humans are only human and from time to time will make mistakes.

VI. You shall love those who deserve your love and be loyal to them always.

VII. You shall be honest in all undertakings and shall not complain about things that are insignificant.

VIII. You shall maintain an independent spirit and a spirit of freedom, but not let them interfere with the independence and freedom of others.

IX. You shall strive to live in peace with all creatures, humans included.

X. You shall accept with serenity the conclusion of life when it comes and trust in nature and in the power that created you instead of worrying about what may lie ahead.
