Courageous Cat

A few nights ago I was woken up in the middle of the night by the sound of an animal crying.  Since I was used to having baby deer in my backyard crying for their mother, and I was still half asleep, I did not think much of it.  The crying would stop and then start again and it went on all night.

When the sun started to come up and I was able to see the backyard from my window, I saw a cat sitting on the lower roof of my house.  He was crying, because he could not find his way down.  How did he get there in the first place is a wonder also.

As I slowly opened the window to reach for him, he got startled and ran down to the gutter and was weighing his options there. My husband went outside and took a long wooden board from the garage that reached all the way up to the roof, in hopes he would leave it there and the cat would walk down.  As my husband was carefully approaching the roof, the cat ran up to the top where he was previously sitting and without hesitation, jumped to the higher roof. From there he found his way to the other side of the house where a tree was giving him the support to make his way down into safety.

Later on I found it interesting that all night he was scared, crying and afraid to move. Even when the sun came up. The upper roof – opportunity – was there for him, yet being scared of us – not knowing we were there to help – gave him the “adrenalin” he needed and did something he did not think he could before. He jumped up to the upper roof.  The ability was in him all along, he just needed a “push”.

This happening made me think… and asked myself the questions I am asking you now too…

Where in your life do you feel stuck, see a possibility, but do not think you can make something happen? Can you actually use your fear to get you out of this stuck place you think you maybe in? Are you aware that help is available?

“If you enter into the discipline necessary to bring about a radical change in your life, you must do delibarately, after giving the matter careful thought and full consideration and then you must allow nothing to interfere with your decision.” – Charles Haanel

This beautiful gray cat considered the spout and decided not to go for it. He looked up to the upper roof a few times and did not decide to go for it either, till he felt there was need for a “radical change”.  After all those considerations, he did not allow his fear to keep him where he was… he made a quantum leap and found his way home.

I LOVE THIS CAT’s (true) STORY.
