S: "One cat just leads to another." - Ernest Hemingway

BC: In honor & memory of our sweet babycat Simba. He will be forever in our hearts. September 23, 1998 - August 2, 2011

FC: Cats | Simba One Special Babycat

1: When God made the world, He chose to put animals in it, and decided to give each whatever it wanted. All the animals formed a long line before His throne, and the cat quietly went to the end of the line. To the elephant and the bear He gave strength, to the rabbit and the deer, swiftness; to the owl, the ability to see at night, to the birds and the butterflies, great beauty; to the fox, cunning; to the monkey, intelligence; to the dog, loyalty; to the lion, courage; to the otter, playfulness. And all these were things the animals begged of God. At last he came to the end of the line, and there sat the little cat, waiting patiently. "What will YOU have?" God asked the cat. The cat shrugged modestly. "Oh, whatever scraps you have left over. I don't mind." "But I'm God. I have everything left over." "Then I'll have a little of everything, please." And God gave a great shout of laughter at the cleverness of this small animal, and gave the cat everything she asked for, adding grace and elegance and, only for her, a gentle purr that would always attract humans and assure her a warm and comfortable home. But he took away her false modesty. - Lenore Fleischer - The Cat's Pajamas

2: Kittens are angels with whiskers. ~Author Unknown

3: Confront a child, a puppy, and a kitten with sudden danger; the child will turn instinctively for assistance, the puppy will grovel in abject submission, the kitten will brace its tiny body for a frantic resistance. - Saki

4: Anything not nailed down is a cat toy. | It is impossible to keep a straight face in the presence of one or more kittens. ~Cynthia E. Varnado

5: A kitten is the most irresistible comedian in the world. Its wide-open eyes gleam with wonder and mirth. It darts madly at nothing at all, and then, as though suddenly checked in the pursuit, prances sideways on its hind legs with ridiculous agility and zeal. - Agnes Repplier

6: "The cat has been described as the most perfect animal, the acme of muscular perfection and the supreme example in the animal kingdom of the coordination of mind and muscle." - Roseanne Ambrose Brown | Hunting is not instinctive for cats. In a clowder, one cat will assume the role of mentor for such skills. Kittens born to non-hunting mothers may never learn to hunt.

8: The reason cats climb is so that they can look down on almost every other animal - it's also the reason they hate birds. K.C. Buffington

9: A cat is a lion in a jungle of small bushes. ~Indian Proverb | "It is in the nature of cats to do a certain amount of unescorted roaming." - Adlai Stevenson

10: "There are people who reshape the world by force or argument, but the cat just lies there, dozing, and the world quietly reshapes itself to suit his comfort and convenience." - Allen and Ivy Dodd

11: You cannot look | at a sleeping cat | and feel tense. | - Jane Pauley | Kittens are born with their eyes shut. They open them in about six days, take a look around, then close them again for the better part of their lives. ~Stephen Baker

12: "Cats were put into the world to disprove the dogma that all things were created to serve man." - Paul Gray | I've never understood why women love cats. Cats are independent, they don't listen, they don't come in when you call, they like to stay out all night, come home and expect to be fed and stroked, then want to be left alone and sleep. In other words, every quality that women hate in a man, they love in a cat. Author Unknown

13: "I love cats because I enjoy my home; and little by little, they become its visible soul." - Jean Cocteau

14: "Cats know how to obtain food without labor, shelter without confinement, and love without penalties." - Walter Lionel George | "To some blind souls all cats are much alike. To a cat lover every cat from the beginning of time has been utterly and amazingly unique." - Jenny de Vries

15: 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 the cat it would improve man, but it would deteriorate the cat. Mark Twain

16: "With the qualities of cleanliness, affection, patience, dignity, and courage that cats have, how many of us, I ask you, would be capable of becoming cats?" - Fernand Mery

17: A cat is an example of sophistication minus civilization. | "You can keep a dog; but it is the cat who keeps people, because cats find humans useful domestic animals." - George Mikes

18: "If cats could talk, they wouldn't." ~Nan Porter

19: No amount of time can erase the memory of a good cat, and no amount of masking tape can ever totally remove his fur from your couch. - Leo Dworken

20: In order to keep a true perspective of one's importance, everyone should have a dog that will worship him and a cat that will ignore him. ~Dereke Bruce

21: People who hate cats will come back as mice in their next life. Faith Resnick

22: "Of all domestic animals the cat is the most expressive. His face is capable of showing a wide range of expressions. His tail is a mirror of his mind. His gracefulness is surpassed only by his agility. And, along with all these, he has a sense of humor." - Walter Chandoha

23: No heaven will not ever Heaven be Unless my cats are there to welcome me.

24: "It doesn't do to be sentimental about cats; the best ones don't respect you for it." - Susan Howatch

25: Rainbow Bridge Just this side of heaven is a place called Rainbow Bridge. When an animal dies that has been especially close to someone here, that pet goes to Rainbow Bridge. There are meadows and hills for all of our special friends so they can run and play together. There is plenty of food, water and sunshine, and our friends are warm and comfortable. All the animals who had been ill and old are restored to health and vigor; those who were hurt or maimed are made whole and strong again, just as we remember them in our dreams of days and times gone by. The animals are happy and content, except for one small thing; they each miss someone very special to them, who had to be left behind. They all run and play together, but the day comes when one suddenly stops and looks into the distance. His bright eyes are intent; His eager body quivers. Suddenly he begins to run from the group, flying over the green grass, his legs carrying him faster and faster. You have been spotted, and when you and your special friend finally meet, you cling together in joyous reunion, never to be parted again. The happy kisses rain upon your face; your hands again caress the beloved head, and you look once more into the trusting eyes of your pet, so long gone from your life but never absent from your heart. Then you cross Rainbow Bridge together. Author Unknown...
