My tragedy is that all I want is a dog, and yet I have been cursed with cats all my life.
I'm not too big on cats, and sometimes I'll say something like that, and people get so mad at me. But the truth is, I don't care if they get mad.
I have studied many philosophers and many cats. The wisdom of cats is infinitely superior.

I grew up with such an affinity to cats. I adore the way that they think and operate.
If you want to relate me to the newer cats, let's go. Let's go line for line and bar for bar. If it's all about spitting and metaphors and MCing and lyrics and entendres, I will eat 99 percent of you dudes up.

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.

Cats and their owners are on a private, exclusive loop of affection. Thus cats have become symbolic of a community eschewed and a hyper-engagement with oneself.

Sleeping together is a euphemism for people, but tantamount to marriage with cats.

Cats will outsmart dogs every time.
When I was a young boy, I preferred cats to dogs. From the age of seven or eight onwards I just felt more comfortable with cats.

But cats to me are strange, so strange I cannot sleep if one is near.
W. H. Davies
