Things I Learn from Cats

There are two means of refuge from the miseries of life: music and cats – Albert Schweize

Women, poets, and especially artists, like cats; delicate natures only can realize their sensitive nervous systems – Helen Winslow

Cats are intended to teach us that not everything in nature has a function – Joseph Wood Krutch

Women and cats will do as they please and men and dogs should relax and get used to the idea – Robert A. Heinlein

How you behave toward cats here below determines your status in Heaven – Robert A. Heinlein

Beware of people who dislike cats – Irish Saying

The cat is above all things, a dramatist – Margaret Benson

Dogs have owners, cats have staff – Anon

Your cat will never threaten you popularity by barking at 3am. He wont attack the mail man and eat the drapes, although he may climb the drapes to see how the room looks from the ceiling – Helen Powers

Cats are magical, the more you pet them the longer you both live – Anon

By associating with the cats one only risks being rich – Sidonie Gabrielle

Curiosity killed the cat but satisfaction brought it back – Eugene O’Neill

A cat has absolute emotional honesty, human beings, for one reason or another, may hide their feelings but a cat does not – Ernest Hemingway

When my cats aren’t happy, I’m not happy. Not because I care about their mood but because I know they’re just sitting there thinking up ways to get even – Percy Bysshe Shelley

Cat people are different, to the extent that they generally are not conformists. How could they be, with a cat running their lives? – Louis Camuti

The cat lives alone, has no need of society, obeys only when she pleases, pretends to sleep that she may see more clearly and scratches everything on which she can lay her paw – Francois R. Chateaubriand

Watch a cat when it enters a room for the first time. It searches and smells about, it is not quiet for a moment; it trusts nothing until it has examined and made acquaintance with everything – Jean-Jacques Rosseau

p.s. After reading these quotes, I have this to say - "correct, correct, correct my dear cat". Thanks Mr Lingam for this famous quote :)
