Are cats too dramatic?
“Cats seem to go on the principle that it never does any harm to ask for what you want.” ~ Joseph Wood Krutch
“I wonder if other dogs think poodles are members of a weird religious cult.”
~ Rita Rudner
“Don’t accept your dog’s admiration as conclusive evidence that you are wonderful.”
~ Ann Landers
“Cats are smarter than dogs. You can’t get eight cats to pull a sled through snow.”
~ Jeff Valdez
“A dog is the only thing on earth that loves you more than he loves himself.”
~ Josh Billings
“Of all God’s creatures there is only one that cannot be made the slave of the lash. That one is the cat. If man could be crossed with a cat it would improve man, but it would deteriorate the cat.” ~ Mark Twain
“Dogs come when they are called; cats take a message and get back to you.” ~ Mary Bly
