They don’t have a past, they can’t link situations in the way we do, nor they do care about the future.
Cats only live the present.
Which is nice because when you want them to learn something you have to do it “now”. You can’t blame them if they do something wrong and you’re not there, you can’t blame them after ’cause they won’t be able to link them.
But in the present, they’re 100% aware.
Something we should learn too, so that the past won’t drag us and the present can be full of presence.
