CATS/ Personal and Informative Share

4a976f9ea22f94a789c44eae5ec0e235.gif No secret I love Cats, lol.

I want to take them all but my space and finances would not like that, I already have my hands full enough. Cats are great though. Seriously, they are such special creatures.

I read a poem once on a bathroom wall.

It went like this

Cats are such agreeable creatures, they pass no judgements nor any criticisms.

Whoever wrote that was out of their mind. Just saying! Cats are most definitely not always agreeable and they can give you a “cold shoulder” if you let them down. Mine sure can.

Any how, I thought I would share some poems about cats…


The smallest feline is a masterpiece.
Leonardo da Vinci

Kittens leave paw prints on your heart.

In the image of the lion made He kittens small and curious.
Heinrich Heine 1797-1856

A little drowsing cat is an image of perfect beatitude.
Champfleury

Are cats lazy? Well, more power to them if they are. Which one of us has not entertained the dream of doing just as he likes, when and how he likes, and as much as he likes?
Fernand Mery

When it comes to knowing how to relax, cats are the original yoga experts.
Patricia Curtis

If only cats grew into kittens.
R.D. Stern

The playful kitten, with its pretty little tigerish gambols, is infinitely more amusing than half the people one is obliged to live with in the world.
Lady Sydney Morgan (1783-1859)

A cat can be trusted to purr when she is pleased, which is more than can be said for human beings.
William Ralph Inge (1860-1954)

Just as the would-be debutante will fret and fuss over every detail till all is perfect, so will the fastidious feline patiently toil until every whiskertip is in place…

When addressed, a Gentleman Cat does not move a muscle. He looks as if he hasn’t heard.
May Sarton

As the cherub is to the angel, so the cat is to the tiger…

Carl Van Vechten

Cats find malicious amusement in doing what they are not wanted to do, and that with an affectation of innocence that materially aggravates their deliberate offense.
Helen Winslow

It is easy to understand why the cat has eclipsed the dog as modern America’s favorite pet. People like pets to possess the same qualities they do. Cats are irresponsible and recognize no authority, yet are completely dependent on others for their material needs. Cats cannot be made to do anything useful. Cats are mean for the fun of it. In fact, cats possess so many of the same qualities as people that it is often hard to tell the people and the cats apart.
P.J. O’Rourke

Cats hate a closed door, you know, regardless of which side they’re on.
If they’re out, they want to get in, and if they’re in, they want to get out.
Lilian Jackson Braun

Let us be honest; most of us rather like our cats to have a streak of wickedness. I should not feel quite easy in the company of any cat that walked around the house with a saintly expression.
Beverly Nichols

Cats, as a class, have never completely got over the snootiness caused by the fact that in ancient Egypt they were worshipped as gods. This makes them prone to set themselves up as critics and censors of the frail and erring human beings whose lot they share.
P.G. Wodehouse

The great charm of cats is their rampant egotism, their devil-may-care attitude toward responsibility, their disinclination to earn an honest dollar…
Robertson Davies — The Table Talk of Samuel Marchbanks

It is very inconvenient habit of kittens (Alice had once made the remark) that, whatever you say to them they always purr.
Lewis Carroll

It is difficult to obtain the friendship of a cat.
It is a philosophic animal ­ one that does not place its affections thoughtlessly.
Theophile Gautier

Cats are connoisseurs of comfort.
James Herriot

The cat, in dignity and independence, is very much like the human animal should be but isn’t.
Paul Corey

Cats pride themselves on their ability to do nothing.
John R. F. Breen

A kitten is the delight of a household. All day long, comedy is played by an incomparable actor.

then a cat is a diagram and pattern of subtle air.

going about their affairs at their own pace.

Old cats mean young mice.

Those who’ll play with cats must expect to be scratched.
Miguel Cervantes

You can tell your cat anything and he’ll still love you. If you lose your job or your best friend, your cat will think no less of you…
Helen Powers — The Biggest Little Cat Book in the World

If human, cats might play solitaire, but they would never sit around with the gang and a few six-packs watching Monday Night Football.
Time Magazine, December 7, 1981

Cats are rather delicate creatures and they are subject to a good many ailments, but I never heard of one who suffered from insomnia.
Joseph Wood Krutch

To assume a cat’s asleep is a grave mistake. He can close his eyes and keep both his ears awake.
Aileen Fisher — from “My Cat Has Eyes of Sapphire Blue”

A cat is a lion in a jungle of small bushes.
Old saying

No matter how much cats fight, there always seem to be plenty of kittens.
Abraham Lincoln

With their qualities of cleanliness, discretion, affection, patience, dignity and courage, how many of us, I ask you, would be capable of being cats?
Fernand Mery — Her Majesty the Cat

Nobody can truly own a cat.
Old British saying

That is just a fraction of the many , many, sayings about cats you can find on the internet.

If you need a good mostly dependent pal, get yourself a cat. They are sweet to cuddle and your heart will forever adore them.

If you are one of the ones lucky enough to have a cat love you, then you have been blessed.


SOME things you might not have heard about cats, I do not necessarily support or believe all these, but for information sake, I am sharing.

The Cat as a Soothsayer

    • Cats can forecast the weather: they predict the wind by clawing at carpets and curtains; rain is highly likely when a cat busily washes its ears.
    • In mythology, the cat was believed to have great influence on the weather. Witches who rode on storms took the form of cats. The dog, an attendant of the storm king Odin, was a symbol of wind. Cats came to symbolize down-pouring rain, and dogs to symbolize strong gusts of wind. This may be where the phrase “it’s raining cats and dogs” originated (see also “Miscellaneous” section below).
    • Some people believed that if a cat washes its face and paws in the parlor, company’s coming.
    • If a cat continually looks out a window on any day, rain is on the way.
    • A black cat seen from behind foretells a bad omen.
    • A stray tortoise-shell cat foretells bad omen
    • Some cats can predict earthquakes (actually, there is some truth in this “folklore”).
    • When a girl living in the Ozark Mountains received a proposal of marriage and was uncertain whether to accept, she folded and placed 3 hairs from a cat’s tail into a paper under her doorstep. The next morning, she would unfold the paper to see if the hairs had formed themselves into a Y or N before answering her suitor.
    • Sailors used cats to predict the voyages they were about to embark upon. Loudly mewing cats meant that it would be a difficult voyage. A playful cat meant that it would be a voyage with good and gusty winds.
    • Some people believe that cats are able to see the human aura, the energy field that surrounds each of us.
    • If early American cats sat with their backs to the fire, the owners knew it foretold a cold snap.
    • A cat sleeping with all four paws tucked under means bad weather is coming.
    • Some people believe that cats may be able to see the spectre of death.
    • If a cat washes behind its ears, it will rain (no doubt this superstition began in some very rainy country!)
    • A cat sneezing once means there will be rain.
    • If a cat sneezes three times, the family will catch a cold
    • A sneezing cat is a sign of future wealth.
    • A cat sneezing is a good omen for everyone who hears it. – Italian superstition
    • Early Americans believed if a cat washes her face in front of several people, the first person she looks at will be the first to get married.
    • If there is a cat washing on the doorstep, the clergy will visit – American folklore
    • When the pupil of a cat’s eye broadens, there will be rain. – Welsh superstition
    • If you find a white hair on a black cat, you will have good luck.
    • One Roman dream interpretation was that dreaming of being badly scratched by a cat foretold sickness and trouble.
    • French peasants thought that black cats could find buried treasure, if they followed a specific ritual: find an intersection where 5 roads connected, then turn the cat loose and follow him.
    • A strange black cat on your porch brings prosperity. – Scottish superstition
    • Tortoiseshell cats were believed to be able to see into the future and could give the gift to a lucky child in the household.
    • Sailors believed that if a cat licked its fur against the grain it meant a hailstorm was coming; if it sneezed, rain was on the way; and if it was frisky, the wind would soon blow.
    • When the pupil of a cat’s eye broadens, there will be rain. – Welsh superstition
    • A bride will have a happy married life if a black cat sneezes near her on her wedding day.
    • Sacred cats kept in a sanctuary in ancient Egypt were carefully tended by priests who watched them day and night. The priests interpreted the cat’s movements – twitch of a whisker, yawn, or stretch – into a prediction of an event that would happen in the future.
