Zoey the Cool Cat was not happy that I featured a flock of birds in yesterday’s post and she couldn’t catch a single one of them.
I promised her I would feature cats in today’s post, so pictures of cats and cat facts to go with them! Check out the mouseovers, too, because some of them have additional cat facts.
“If you’re feeling insecure about your space in the world, you get a dog because he will always back you up. He’s the insecure man’s best friend. A man with a cat, on the other hand, is secure with himself. He’s sharing his space with a predator.”—John Scalzi, author
“A cat has no words, but by small touchings and buttings and leanings, she shows her love for you, and tries to distract you from your sorrow.”—Pam Brown
For My Human
I thank you for the food you bring
And for my little squeaky thing.
I thank you for your friendly talks
And when you change my little box.
I think you for the naps we share
And putting up with tufts of hair.
I thank you for these things you do.
“A cat isn’t fussy, just as long as you remember it likes its milk in the shallow, rose-patterned saucer and its fish on the blue plate, from which it will take the fish and eat it off the floor.”—Arthur Bridges.
After scolding one’s cat, one looks into its face and is seized by the ugly suspicion that it understood every word and has filed it for reference.—Charlotte Gray
There are two means of refuge from the miseries of life: music and cats.—Albert Schweitzer
In World War II during the blitz in England, a cat named Bomber could tell the difference between a British Royal Air Force airplane and a German plane from a great distance. When Bomber started to run for the shelter, people quickly learned to follow and get to safety before the bombs fell.—The Cat Lover’s Book of Days, by Peg Silloway, p. 15.
“A kitten is infinitely more amusing than half the people one is obliged to live with in the world.”—Lady Morgan (Sydney Owenson)
As I was going to St. Ives,
I met a man with seven wives;
Every wife had seven sacks;
Every sack had seven cats;
Every cat had seven kits.
Kits, cats, sacks, and wives,
How many were going to St. Ives?
