Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. – The Ultimate Yogi

mlk quote

Never, never be afraid to do what’s right, especially if the well-being of a person or animal is at stake. Society’s punishments are small compared to the wounds we inflict on our soul when we look the other way. ~ Martin Luther King, Jr.

Greetings Felines and the humans who serve us!

Today we honor the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and his work. Dr. King was not only a great civil rights leader, humanitarian, and Nobel Peace Prize winner, he was also a yogi.  He followed the path of Karma Yoga which is the yoga of selfless service. This type of yoga is practiced as a means to help, heal, and share. He was a “peaceful warrior” committed to nonviolence or ahimsa which in Sanskrit means the avoidance of violence.

Feline Yogi salutes Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and we thank him for his work to make this world a better place for all beings who live on this planet.

Until Next time….Meow and Namaste to All!

Love,

Pippy

Here’s to a Cat-tastic 2014!!

Greetings Felines and the humans who serve us! And Happy New Year!

Hanging out and taking it easy this past week

Hanging out and taking it easy this past week

I, Pippy (being European at heart) took an extended vacation this past holiday season. I did not return back to my duties as CEO of Feline Yogi on January 2, like many of my counterparts in the American business world. Instead I took several more days, lounged around, and humored my human by letting her take pictures of me for Instagram!

When one of my humans this past week asked me “Pippy what are your New Year’s Resolutions?”, I was at  first taken aback!  Pippy does not make resolutions!  Resolutions were invented for humans to make them feel empowered for the first week of the year. And as we all know,  by mid-January nary a word is spoken again about their oh so ambitious resolutions!

My human all excited about the New Year and the Resolutions she will not keep!

My human all excited about the New Year and the Resolutions she will not keep!

 I have never once heard either of my humans following up in March, August, or even late January on how their resolutions are going for them. No, not once! And do you know why? Because they have forgotten them by that time!

However, after much contemplation I decided why not!! I can play the ” New Year’s Resolutions” game and unlike humans I will keep mine! Below are my resolutions for 2014 and I promise that I will get back to you in late January as to how it’s going!

  • Sleep more
  • Pose for more Instagram pictures
  • Watch more Bird T.V.
  • Take up more room on the bed at night
  • Walk on more computer keyboards
  • Get on my human’s yoga mat when she gets it out (yes I know I have my own yoga mat but that’s not the point!)
  • Jump up on more “no no places” like the kitchen cabinet, the male human’s computer table, the lap of my female human’s mother who does not like cat hair on her designer outfits, etc…
Practicing one of my favorite poses-Loaf pose!

Until Next time….Meow and Namaste to All! And Best Wishes for a cat-tastic 2014!!

Love,

Pippy
