A Little Cat Humor…

If you’re on the fence about making the commitment to getting and caring for a cat, then here are some quotes from the famous (and not so famous) that may help you decide:

“No matter how much cats fight, there always seems to be plenty of kittens.” — Abraham Lincoln

“Of all God’s creatures, there is only one that cannot be made slave of the leash. That one is the cat. If man could be crossed with the cat it would improve the man, but it would deteriorate the cat.” — Mark Twain

“I have studied many philosophers and many cats. The wisdom of cats is infinitely superior.” — Hippolyte Taine

“Everything I know I learned from my cat: When you’re hungry, eat. When you’re tired, nap in a sunbeam. When you go to the vet’s, pee on your owner.” — Gary Smith

“When I play with my cat, how do I know that she is not passing time with me rather than I with her?” — Montaigne

“Cats are a tonic, they are a laugh, they are a cuddle, they are at least pretty just about all of the time and beautiful some of the time.” — Roger Caras

“You can keep a dog; but it is the cat who keeps people, because cats find humans useful domestic animals.” — George Mikes

“Thousands of years ago, cats were worshipped as gods. Cats have never forgotten this.” — Anonymous

“No amount of time can erase the memory of a good cat, and no amount of masking tape can ever totally remove his fur from your couch.” — Leo Dworken

“One of the oldest human needs is having someone to wonder where you are when you don’t come home at night.” — Margaret Mead

“Any cat who misses a mouse pretends it was aiming for the dead leaf.” — Charlotte Gray

“Cats only assume their strangest, most intriguing amd beautiful postures when it is impossible to photograph them. Cat calendars always disappoint for they only show the puiblic range of cat positions.” — JR Coulson

“The really great thing about cats is their endless variety. One can pick a cat to fit almost any kind of decor, color, scheme, income, personality, mood. But under the fur, whatever color it may be, there still lies, essentially unchanged, one of the world’s free souls.” — Eric Gurney

“Of all domestic animals the cat is the most expressive. His face is capable of showing a wide range of expressions. His tail is a mirror of his mind. His gracefulness is surpassed only by his agility. And, along with all these, he has a sense of humor.” — Walter Chandoha

“The reason cats climb is so that they can look down on almost every other animal…its also the reason they hate birds.” — K.C. Buffington

“A cat does not want all the world to love her – only those she has chosen to love.” — Helen Thomson

“It’s a well known fact that the survival rate after heart-attacks is significantly higher among pet-owners than non-owners and that human blood pressure falls in the presence of companion animals – especially cats.” — Dr. Maya Patel

Cat hair on the bedspread,
Cat hair on the chair.
Cat hair in the casserole,

Cat hair on my best coat,
Even on the mouse!
You live and eat and breathe cat hair,
When cats live in your house.
