Mr Midnight had started wearing a purple latex band around one of his legs and he was now proudly parading around the garden so that Sir Winston could see it.
What have you got tied to your leg Mr Midnight? It looks quite funny.
It´s a new therapy I´m practicing.
As you already know, I`m not too keen on bands around cats necks and things like that, even though they sometimes have little bells attached to them, but I wanted to start this therapy thing I read about.
But why the colourful band?
Does it help your blood pressure or something?
In a way, I suppose it does help my blood pressure Sir W.
You´re aware that I have a tendency to moan about things a lot, especially what the humans manage to do to our planet, and so the band helps me to cool down a little.
I`m not quite with you Mr Midnight.
Can you explain yourself a little better?
The other day I was lolling about, killing 8 or 10 hours before daddy usually makes the evening meal, when I happened to notice a book by daddy´s bedside. I didn´t have much else to do so before I had another little nap I thought I would try and read a few words of it.
I´m not quite sure you should have been in daddy´s bedroom Mr Midnight. You know what a fuddy duddy he is about us cats going into his sleeping quarters.
Well if you don´t tell him I won´t.
Won´t he think it odd that you´re wearing a band around your leg, especially if its been quoted in his book?
I´ll cross that bridge when I get to it. Anyway, don´t you want to know what the book is all about?
Oh yes, please do go on.
The book is called “A Complaint Free World” from a Mr Will Bowen and is about how to stop complaining and to live the life you always wanted.
Basically, it´s a 21 day challenge and you know how much I love challenges.
Too right Mr M.
It´s all about creating a positive lifestyle.
Moaning and complaining about things attracts negative energy and negative energy blocks the body, even attracting and reinforcing our negativity which in the long run, often creates all sorts of illness.
Although most of us are not aware, we all complain quite a lot – even us cats!
So according to the book, everytime I moan, complain, nag or groan I have to swap my leg band onto the other leg with the goal of not swapping the band for 21 days!
Everytime I swap the band it makes me aware that I´m complaining again.
Obviously, human beings swap their band from wrist to wrist.
Because these strap things are not really made for cats I have to cheat a little sometimes. I hope Mr Bowen is alright with that. If I moan or complain about something then I catch myself moaning and will therefore moan a second time so that I may keep my band on the same leg! I think the main idea is that I´m conscious of the fact I´m moaning.
So if we can get rid of our complaining then we help our bodies to detox from negativity in which to become happy again. It sounds like a great idea and a lot of fun is involved.
Here´s the website incase any of you out there happens to be interested:-
http://www.willbowen.com (As I´ve already said, he´s the chappie who set the whole thing in motion).
It looks like I´ve got to go and get one of those bands. They are a pretty colour aren´t they.
It´s up to you folks. Do you want to live a happy life or not?
If you ask me, you´ve nothing to lose.
All our love from Mr Midnight and Sir Winston.
