"There are two means of refuge from the miseries of life: music and cats."
"Time spent with cats is never wasted."
"Cats are smarter than dogs. You can't get eight cats to pull a sled through the snow."
"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."
"The cat could very well be man's best friend but would never stoop to admitting it."
"A kitten is so flexible that she is almost double; the hind parts are equivalent to another kitten with which the forepart plays. She does not discover that her tail belongs to her until you tread on it."
-Henry David Thoreau
"A dog is like a liberal, he wants to please everybody. A cat doesn't really need to know that everybody loves him."
"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."
"Cats are dangerous companions for writers because cat watching is a near-perfect method of writing avoidance."
"No one can have experienced to the fullest the true sense of achievement and satisfaction who have never pursued and successfully caught his tail."
