Cats, Cats, Everywhere Cats
This is the main line to the first song my daughter Kyleigh learned to play when taking piano lessons at the age of eight. It is a song I will never get out of my head. But that’s okay, as I love cats!
The following are purrfect cat quotes and images I created to share with the many cat lovers I know are out there.
Key West is Ernest Hemingway’s former home, now the Ernest Hemingway Home and Museum. The island is home to a resident population of polydactyl (many-toed) cats and it is said many are descendants of Hemingway’s cats who resided with him over the years.
The great author Charles Dickens was a cat lover. It is said he would sit and write for long periods, and when his cats wanted his attention they would put out the flame of the candle on his desk!
Leonardo da Vinci created many drawings portraying his delight in the carefully observed play and movement of his feline companions.
Mark Twain once said, “I simply can’t resist a cat, particularly a purring one. They are the cleanest, cunningest, and most intelligent things I know, outside of the girl you love, of course.”
Groucho Marx made a statement against the ridiculous stigma surrounding black cats.
Mixed feelings abound over psychologist Sigmund Freud’s psychoanalytical theories. One cannot question the kindness in his heart made evident by his quote on cats.
95-year-old Doris Day has been a long-time advocate for animal welfare and the campaign to reduce animal neglect and abuse through spay and neuter programs.
Created by the Doris Day Animal League in 1995 as Spay Day USA, the last Tuesday of February is World Spay Day–it is recognized by nearly 70 countries. Find out more at Life With Cats.
Losing your feline companion is incredibly difficult. But the love a cat offers us during our time together is priceless.
