In Thailand, a Buddhist monk was trying to pray when a stray cat wandered into his lap. Buddhism teaches respect for all living creatures, so this Buddhist monk tried to ignore the cat before finally giving up and petting it.

IF a cat can destroy and test a Buddhist monk’s patience, it should be no surprise that your own cat tries your own patience as well. If a Buddhist monk has no chance against a cat, then you might as well resign your fate and devote yourself to serving the needs of your cat because that’s your purpose in life anyway.
