There are three ways of determining who “the rich” are. It could be those with the most income, biggest net worth, or largest lifestyle.
These first two definitions (the most income and biggest net worth) frequently define the same set of people. However, the third definition of “the rich” as the most luxurious tends to be a different set of people all together. A luxurious life is certainly easy to achieve, but having a large lifestyle is hardly something to aspire to. Although many people with a large income and big savings have the ability to live rich, this kitten knows that the way to truly be wealthy is to live within your means.

She lives within her means, always saving the maximum for retirement.
