Cat Quotables-Cats Bring Cheer

Her sinuous back was curled
Around a straying sunbeam
Which seemed to catch and hold her
In a deep and friendly dream.
The sight brought warm comfort
To my lonely flat...
Which is a bit more cheerful...
Now, that I have a cat.

Cat Quotables-Goldfish and Kitten

"Japanese goldfish,
With your gossamer tail,
You are the loveliest creature
I have ever seen."

"Japanese kitten,
Put your tongue back in where it belongs
And go away.
I know exactly what you are thinking."
-Paul Gallico (1896-1976)

Cat Quotables-Beware of the Cat

We tie bright ribbons around their necks, and occasionally little tinkling bells, and we affect to think that they are as sweet and vapid as the coy name "kitty" by which we call them would imply. It is a curious illusion. For, purring beside our fireplaces and pattering along our back fences, we have got a wild beast as uncowed and uncorrupted as any under heaven.

Cat Quotables-Offended Cat

When a cat is offended every square centimetre of him is offended. Men and women of power and intellect have been brought to their knees by cats who have turned their backs on them.

Cat Quotables-Sphinx

Lift up your large black satin eyes which are like cushions where one sinks! Fawn at my feet, fantastic Sphinx! and sing me all your memories!
-Oscar Wilde (1856-1900)
