7 New Year’s Resolutions You’ll be Able to Keep

If you’re feline:
Knock more things off desks.
Take more naps in the sun.

If you’re canine:
Sniff more trees. Mark more trees.
Roll in something stinky every day.

If you’re human: talk less, read more,
pick up after yourself, don’t be mean.

    This poem is so much better than all of those self-help articles for the new year. It made me smile.
    Happy New Year! Wishing you peace and laughter.

    And if you’re a bird, yell your head off all the time. And if you’re a rat, dig up everything and eat it.
