I have this hanging over my fridge door

" Dogs have owners...Cats have Staffs!"

How true!

Dragonheart said...

Those are terrific quotes! Mark Twain and Leonardo da Vinci were clearly very intelligent humans! Thanks for sharing these. :)

Daisy said...

My favorite is "The smallest feline is a masterpiece." Because Leonardo da Vinci was a genius, so he must be right. And because I think every cat is very beautiful.

Wonderful quotes! Some I hadn't seen before. And here are some more for ya:

“People that hate cats, will come back as mice in their next life.” ~ anonymous

“I have noticed that what cats most appreciate in a human being is not the ability to produce food, which they take for granted - but his or her entertainment value.” ~ Geoffrey Household

Purrs to Kimo and Sabi from C.J., Dorydoo, Marilyn, and Chairman Mao (who says, of course, MAO)! :)

The Shrone said...

I've always loved the Mark Twain quote about cats. My 6 beasties are staring out the window today wondering why there is snow on the ground. Mr. Doo is very displeased! Perhaps you can reassure him that snow does melt?

I am sending you one of my poems. I feel this shows the true relationship between Lynettea and me. Devotion to the end. She still hasn't learnt hunting though.


After our walk
Wet shoe prints
On the porch
Following wet paw prints.
