That one is true, Marie. I saw it happen, and repaired the computer it happened to.

I especially like these:

“There are many intelligent species in the universe. They are all owned by cats.” - Anonymous

“Beware of people who dislike cats.” - Irish proverb

“You will always be lucky if you know how to make friends with strange cats.” - Colonial American proverb

These are so funny and true. This is one I hadn't seen before:

“Some people say that cats are sneaky, evil, and cruel. True, and they have
many other fine qualities as well.” - Missy Dizick



I think that's a billiant reposte to people who expect cats to be cute and fluffy all the time.

Re: Famous Cat Quotes (found on the web) (long)

"I meant," said Ipslore bitterly, "what is there in this world that truly makes living worthwhile?"
Death thought about it.
"Cats," he said eventually. "Cats are nice."

Terry Pratchett, Sourcery




If a dog jumps in your lap, it is because he is fond of you; but if a cat does the same thing, it is because your lap is warmer.

Alfred North Whitehead (1861 - 1947)
