I'm not into animal rights. I'm only into animal welfare and health. I've been with the Morris Animal Foundation since the '70s. We're a health organization. We fund campaign health studies for dogs, cats, lizards and wildlife. I've worked with the L.A. Zoo for about the same length of time. I get my animal fixes!
I collect records. And cats. I don't have any cats right now. But if I'm taking a walk and I see a cat, I'm happy.
I'm one of the more pessimistic cats on the planet. I make Van Gogh look like a rodeo clown.
I never minded flying cheap. I always said to myself, 'Taking this flight saves enough money to rescue four dogs, or six cats, or will let me make a difference to the one woman saving chimps in Cameroon.'
Cats and dogs believe politicians are like cemetery caregivers; they are on top of everyone, but nobody listens.
Rita Mae Brown
As an inspiration to the author, I do not think the cat can be over-estimated. He suggests so much grace, power, beauty, motion, mysticism. I do not wonder that many writers love cats; I am only surprised that all do not.
Carl Van Vechten
I was reading Omar Khayyam, Kahlil Gibran, Rumi, L. Ron Hubbard, all sorts of philosophy. Bebop cats are like that. Curious. I wanted to know about everything.
When my cats aren't happy, I'm not happy. Not because I care about their mood but because I know they're just sitting there thinking up ways to get even.
Percy Bysshe Shelley
I love cats because I enjoy my home; and little by little, they become its visible soul.
I take care of my flowers and my cats. And enjoy food. And that's living.
Even cats grow lonely and anxious.
I have studied many philosophers and many cats. The wisdom of cats is infinitely superior.
Cats and monkeys; monkeys and cats; all human life is there.
I'm hostile to men, I'm hostile to women, I'm hostile to cats, to poor cockroaches, I'm afraid of horses.
But cats to me are strange, so strange I cannot sleep if one is near.
W. H. Davies
If I'd find a dog, I'd try to find the owner, of course, but it was mine! I just can't live without them; I love them so much. I have cats, too. People call me all the time and say, 'We know of a couple of cats people don't care for,' and I say, 'Bring them!' That's it - two words. I'm always open for that.
Sleeping together is a euphemism for people, but tantamount to marriage with cats.
Way down deep, we're all motivated by the same urges. Cats have the courage to live by them.
Cats are rather delicate creatures and they are subject to a good many different ailments, but I have never heard of one who suffered from insomnia.
Joseph Wood Krutch
Scalded cats fear even cold water.
Like all pure creatures, cats are practical.
William S. Burroughs
I always looked up to so many people before me and was lucky to become such good friends with them. I learned so much hanging out with those cats.
Every unwanted animal ends up on my farm: alpacas and horses and dogs and cats and chickens and ducks and parrots and fish and guinea pigs.
There are a lot of obstacles in the way of our understanding animal intelligence - not the least being that we can't even agree whether nonhuman species are conscious. We accept that chimps and dolphins experience awareness; we like to think dogs and cats do. But what about mice and newts? What about a fly? Is anything going on there at all?
We have associations to things. We have, you know, we have associations to tables and to - and to dogs and to cats and to Harvard professors, and that's the way the mind works. It's an association machine.
Martin Luther King, Jr.
C. S. Lewis
