National Cat Day 2017 – Who Knew?

National Cat Day. Who knew October 29, 2017 was so designated? I didn’t until I woke up and turned on the computer. So, here is a pic of Tim and Laurie Price’s Spunk, the cat who is really sweet but who also is so curious he can get into a lot of trouble. He had to become a photographer’s model to earn enough to pay down his running tab for things destroyed. 😉 The other is my cat Paco (RIP), a sweet little companion in his final years.

Some quotes about cats:

“There are two means of refuge from the misery of life — music and cats.”
~ Albert Schweitzer

“Owners of dogs will have noticed that, if you provide them with food and water and shelter and affection, they will think you are god. Whereas owners of cats are compelled to realize that, if you provide them with food and water and shelter and affection, they draw the conclusion that they are gods.”
~ Christopher Hitchens, The Portable Atheist: Essential Readings for the Nonbeliever

“What’s your name,’ Coraline asked the cat. ‘Look, I’m Coraline. Okay?’
‘Cats don’t have names,’ it said.
‘No?’ said Coraline.
‘No,’ said the cat. ‘Now you people have names. That’s because you don’t know who you are. We know who we are, so we don’t need names.”
~ Neil Gaiman, Coraline

“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

“A cat has absolute emotional honesty: human beings, for one reason or another, may hide their feelings, but a cat does not.”
~ Ernest Hemingway

Whatever your feelings about cats, I hope you are having a great day!
