Cats and Quotes

by Karen Rose Smith

The other day I was doing some research and I came across several websites that featured cat quotes.  Since the sleuths in both of my cozy mystery series (Caprice in Caprice De Luca Home Staging mysteries and Daisy in Daisy's Tea Garden mysteries) have cats, I had to explore the sites.  I was amazed at the number of famous people, many of whom were authors, had their opinions about the feline world.  I  thought it would be fun to take some of the quotes and attach photos of my cats or cats that we pet sat over the past summer.  Enjoy. 

     Charles Dickens

What greater gift than the love of a cat.


No home is complete without the pitter patter of kitty feet.

Cats have it all: admiration, an endless sleep, and company only when they want it.

When Rome burned, the emperor's cats still expected to be fed on time.

There are few things in life more heartwarming than to be welcomed by a cat

A kitten is, in the animal world, what a rosebud is in the garden.
