Live in the moment.
Purr more, hiss less.
Give people the benefit of the doubt. They may be only good for an evenings’ worth of cuddles and kind words, but it’s still an enjoyable evening. (Also: See ‘Live in the moment’.)
Be kind to strangers. You never know if you’re going to brighten up their day by just being you.
Be kind to strangers: You may become a cult classic and fan favorite for your authenticity. Own it.
Be yourself. Be goofy, strange, cranky, weird, wobbly, loving, drooly. Be all of it. Be yourself SO HARD that when you are gone, people still think about you.
When in doubt, go for the nip.
Do what makes you happy.
Love much. Love often.
Retire to Buffalo.
