How to Land on Your Feet

Life Lessons from My Cat

Illustrated by Jamie Shelman

Why spend one life worrying . . . when you could spend nine lives napping?

Take it from artist Jamie Shelman's wry and furry felines: Cats work reasonable hours (zero), love wisely (from a distance), and live boldly (until someone starts vacuuming). Don't go without these 100 sage lessons:
  • Be especially attentive to the one person who doesn’t like you.
  • Get away with murder by looking cute.
  • Ignore anyone who doesn't worship you.
  • Be pleased with your achievements, however small.
  • The best solution to a problem is a nap.
Live better—live like your cat!
