“If man could be crossed with the cat it would improve the man, but it would deteriorate the cat.” ―Mark Twain


What we most admire in the cat, great or small, is not its cuddly nature.

If cats looked like frogs we’d realize what nasty, cruel little bastards they are. Style. That’s what people remember.”

Terry Pratchett

Beneath its preened patches, spots or stripes, we admire its mean streak more.

“The smallest feline is a masterpiece.” 

Leonardo da Vinci

Our admiration’s deepest cause: the wakefulness behind shuttered eyes, the peacefulness of sheathed claws.

“Way down deep, we’re all motivated by the same urges. Cats have the courage to live by them.” Jim Davis
