TT #31: cat quotes

Thirteen cat qoutes
This week I bought a great book. It's called "The Enchanted Cat; feline fascinations, spells & magick" and written by Ellen Dugan. If you are a cat-lover with an interest in witchcraft like me, this is the book for you too! Throughout the book there are some great quotes about cats, so I thought I'd share these with you!

  • In the cat I see woman with her ever-changing, sensitive soul. - Giacomo Casanova
  • Prowling his own quiet backyard or asleep by the fire, he is still only a whisker away from the wilds. - Jean Burden
  • The soul of another is a mystery, and a cat's soul even more so. - Anton Chekhov
  • You can't own a cat. The best you can do is be partners. - Sir Harry Swanson
  • What greater gift than the love of a cat? - Charles Dickens
  • A kitten is in the animal world what a rosebud is in the garden. - Robert Southey
  • Happy is the home with at least one cat. - Italian proverb
  • The naming of cats is a difficult matter, it isn't just one of your holiday games... - T.S. Eliot
  • My cat knows the song in my heart and purrs it to me when my memory fails. - unknown
  • If you want to know the character of a man, find out what his cat thinks of him. - anonymous
  • The idea of calm exists in a sitting cat. - Jules Reynard
  • The smallest feline is a masterpiece. - Leonardo Da Vinci
  • A meow massages the heart. - Stuart McMillan

  17. and "a cat is a heart covered with fur" said Brigitte Bardot.
    and "If you want the best seat in a house... move the cat!" I think that was from Jean Cocteau ! I have read some extrays of the book it's just great and now I also have an idea for what I should write for the blogging chicks ! The carnival is a "book" Thanks for the inspiration !!

  18. This was such an excellent list of quotes...every one of them was purrrrfect.

    Wow, I was really surprised by the Da Vinci quote...I didn't know he was so into cats. I wonder if he paintied any...I might have to go and look that up or google it...curious and fun.

    Good list as usual, and I think I will look ofr that book.

  27. Tink - Aww. These are so sweet.

    What no Catwoman qoutes?
    Come on cats are sexy, bad girls;)

    Catwoman: Halle Berry - The day I died was the day I started to live. In my old life, I longed for someone to see what was special in me. You did, and for that, you'll always be in my heart. But what I really needed was for me to see it. And now I do. You're a good man, Tom. But you live in a world that has no place for someone like me. You see, sometimes I'm good. Oh, I'm very good. But sometimes I'm bad. But only as bad as I wanna be. Freedom is power. To live a life untamed and unafraid is the gift that I've been given, and so my journey begins.

    Original Catwoman: Eartha Kitt - Me-OW

    The last one says it all!

  29. I love the "you can't own a cat" quote. It's so true! My cat is a good friend and she knows when I need to cuddle with her.

    Happy TT!

  32. Whoaa.... look at my friends who hang out here. Bloghopping is a beautiful thing. And I have to confess when I saw the subject line my first thought was: "So what would cats say?" Don't mind me - my brain is a very strange place sometimes.

    ReplyDelete
  33. Great quotes. I have a kitty and I just love him!
    Thanks for coming by my T13.

  34. Thanks for visiting my TT.

    I really enjoyed the cat quotes. One of my cats is very sick. He is having to stay at the vets, until he gets better. I was hoping he would get to come home today, but it looks like he won't now. I have my fingers crossed he'll get to come home tomorrow.

    ReplyDelete
  35. Hi Tink, the candle must have done the trick the vet called and Whiskers has started eating again, so we are fixing to go get him.

    Thanks for thinking of us.

    ReplyDelete
  36. I read them aloud to my cat, Mortimer, who is lying on my desk as I type this!

    Great list

    ReplyDelete
  37. oh yes, purring the song of my heart in the moments i've forgotten it...my Gremlin does that while sitting on my heart and sipping my tears!

    lovely list

    my TT is 13 research projects impacted by the impending library closure. its part 1 of a projected three part series. yes there are that many. At least. A writer needs a library more than caffine.

  38. Glad to see some TS Eliot! From one cat lover to another, nice list!

    ReplyDelete
  39. I'd change that to "a purr massages the heart." What a great list! I will definitely love this book! I'm going to look it up tomorrow.

    Happy TT!

  40. If you want to know the character of a man, find out what his cat thinks of him. Very true, and very good list of quotes ;)

  41. I liked "You can't own a cat. The best you can do is be partners." - Sir Harry Swanson

    My aunt just addopted a new cat today, and I passed on the quote about naming cats to her.
