Nothings strange, it's only that I can communicate with them hear to heart. I can't hear their voices. But there are many ways in this world to communicate!
When I feel tired, cats often come up to me and talk to me.
About 8 years ago, when I was sitting on a bench in a local park near home in Tokyo, I saw a cat. I was so tired and lost that afternoon.
I was tired from busy work, but I never took any rest. I just kept working and working. Sitting on the bench for 5 minutes was the most I could do, escaping from my work...
This cat looked at me asked me, "Yuji, who do you never take a rest when you are tired?"
I was so shocked.
Not that I was able to communicate with the cat.
I was shocked by the truth that I didn't even think of taking a rest when I was so tired!
Soon after that, I quite working for one of my agencies (I was working over the phone for telephone counselling, as well as working as a magazine writer)
Then I reduced the amount of work I would take on regular bases. And I am learning to enjoy my life more.
If you are really busy, and you need to break, please tell your boss that you need a break.
"Because I was advised by a cat to take a rest..."
Your boss will probably give you a very long break!
