One my new followers, KnightOwl, has a site called Cats World, so I thought I'd toss in a few cat quotes, old and new.
"Today is shaping up as a good day with my pets. My dog came running to greet me, and I have a 2:30 appointment with my cat."
"If you could combine a cat and a dog, you'd have man's best accomplice."
"In a world of doors, the inability to open a door can be mistaken for a desire to lie under the dining room table."
"I enjoy many silent moments with my cat, a conversation always resumed exactly where left off."
"At the family's insistence, Aunt Viv consulted a psychoanalyst, who tells her that her need to own ten cats is really a sublimated desire to own twenty cats."
And a thought on animals, generally...
"Do animals ever question their Maker? Perhaps not, and yet... there is this howling at the moon."
"Grammar is not about nouns, verbs and adjectives, any more than history is about names, dates and places. Grammar is about tense, mood and voice, just as history is about trend, climax and change."
Here's one for Maureen, a retired English teacher who stopped by the other day.
A couple on parenting and kids...
"What first-time parents soon realize is that the maternity ward was working on three shifts."
"A mom reads you like a book, and wherever she goes, people read you like a glowing book review."
And a few miscellaneous maunderings...
"My quest for cosmic understanding is a book I have picked up and put down many times, each time failing to insert a bookmark."
"Life is a series of stages, each preparation for the previous."
"Eventually, every politician comes to believe that you need not legislate action; you can just pass a law mandating the consequences."
"Word from Washington is that the President remains open to new ideas, although he has completed his memoirs through 2016."
"I look at it this way. I'm not an eavesdropper; I have an attention surplus disorder."
