Good manners

Manners make the person and a little courtesy goes a long way.

No one is ever too big to be kind or polite

Although some might be too small.

It helps too if you know how to sit delicately with your legs crossed

While waiting patiently for others to learn from you.

For more well-mannered animals, visit: Camera Critters.

  15. Oscar is such a beauty, and so well-behaved. I wish he could teach our Lindy a thing or two about patience. She’s no young pup, but she dances around the kitchen, doing her starving-dog act and making a purring sound, when she wants a treat of sliced veggies.
