Along the path to self-discovery, Pip has noticed a pattern in life. He often finds himself smack dab in the middle - the peacekeeper, bridge-builder, mediator, or referee. Ongoing drama between cats and dogs, people and pets (cats and dogs sometimes align in this fight), and don’t EVEN get him started on the backyard battles between the squirrels and birds.
Can’t we all just play nice and get along, Pip wonders?
Pip wears many hats, bandanas, and bowties and is comfortable in many worlds. He is a lover not a fighter, a healer not a divider. But the thing is, Pip is tired …with his blogging, eating, and napping schedule his time and energy are limited. And so, he is hoping (deep breath) that everyone might carry on without his help for a while.
Pip’s Tips for Keeping It Real (or how to place nice with others)
- Cats – a change in temperature, meal schedule, or furniture position does not a crisis make. Accept what you can’t change, change what you can, and don’t worry about the rest. Enough with the drama already!
- Dogs – the people pleasing must end. Not everyone is going to like you and that’s OK. Doing tricks, giving paw, listening to humans is optional. Pip learned this truth from his feline sisters, thank you sisters. Pip doesn’t know any tricks and people STILL like him (but do they REALLY like me?)
- Humans – please stop asking dogs and cats to behave like humans. We are dogs and cats – furry, wild, and unpredictable. We bark, hiss, bite, shed, scratch the couch, spit up hairballs, and have occasional accidents inside. No offense, but you are the ones who have complicated life with your silly rules and stuff everywhere. We are just trying to keep it real!
