Traditions and rituals play an important role in human lives, but they are by no means exclusive to us. Cats have their rituals, too.
Take Hakuna, for example. She has established a regular practice of sitting atop her scratching pad in the morning. When we arise, we will inevitably see her perched upon that pad, posed pensively, to await her daily battle with the Red Laser Dot.
It is exceedingly rare for her to sit on that pad any other time of the day.
You may theorize that she likes the pad because it has been warmed by the morning sun, but that fails to explain why she can be found there well before sunrise. If you have any other ideas, feel free to share ’em!
