Cat Diary (8): Wisdom

This is an occasional Sunday feature where my cat, pardon, Her Majesty the Cat, offers her more or less gracious insight into our lives.

All right, I know this says to be a Sunday feature. Note to all: it doesn’t say it is every Sunday feature, does it? Anyhow, I don’t seem to have enough important things to talk about every Sunday. You know what they say: if you don’t have anything meaningful to say, better keep quiet.

Besides, it’s the summer hiatus. Yes, for cats, too. Okay, especially for cats. Nothing much is happening. I eat. I sleep. I take strolls in summer breeze. I pry on people from the window (by the way – there are some road works in progress, all very interesting until those machines start making noise). I try catching flies for amusement, though I haven’t got much success yet, darn are those things fast!

I also ponder a lot, and since I’m not on the shy side of boasting with my species wisdom, here are some very flattering things people have said about us cats:

"In the beginning, God created man, but seeing him so feeble, He gave him the cat." - Warren Eckstein

"Dogs come when they're called. Cats take a message and get back to you." - Mary Bly

"Cats are smarter than dogs. You can't get eight cats to pull a sled through snow."
- Jeff Valdez

"The smallest feline is a masterpiece." - Leonardo da Vinci

"People who hate cats, will come back as mice in their next life." - Faith Resnick

Hehe, hehe…still laughing at the last one. And that da Vinci guy, such a charming gentleman. Purr.

Oh, and everybody who reads this: thumbs paws up!

Have fun until you hear from me next,

  1. Haha, great one! I'm glad Her Majesty is enjoying her summer.

    This quote wins: "Cats are smarter than dogs. You can't get eight cats to pull a sled through snow." lol


Don't hesitate to drop me a few strange new words! I'd love to hear what you think!
