National Cat Day

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. πŸ˜‰ The other is my cat Paco (RIP), a sweet little companion in his final years.

Some quotes about cats:

β€œThere are two means of refuge from the misery of life β€” music and cats.”
~ Albert Schweitzer

β€œOwners 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

β€œWhat’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

β€œI 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

β€œA 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!

  1. I have just caught up with you and all your lovely images again, Susan. Our cats also think every day should be National Cat Day! πŸ™‚

    I am sorry for the loss of your little Paco. He looks like a sweet little cat.

    1. Hi, Lavinia! Thank you. So nice to see you! Paco was a good little cat. I think all cats *believe* every day is National – maybe World – Cat Day. And…maybe they are correct! πŸ™‚ )))))))))))))))

  2. Yes, cats are in charge of their domiciles and everyone in them, people and dogs included.

    1. Hi, Juanita! So very true! I have a friend who describes his job as “concierge to the cats.” But they can be so lovable…
      Thanks for dropping by!
