“Feline diabetes is NOT the natural fate of hundreds of thousands of
pet cats world-wide. It is, rather, a human-created disease that is
reaching epidemic proportions because of the highly artificial foods that we
have been feeding our feline companions for the past few decades. Without
the constant feeding of highly processed, high carbohydrate DRY foods, better
suited to cattle than cats, adult-onset feline diabetes would be a rare disease,
if it occured at all.” — Elizabeth Hodgkins DVM, JD

The Damned Human Race
by Mark Twain

There is a time for many words,
and there is also a time for sleep.
 ― Homer

A cat is a purring parcel of paradox, a cunning collection of contradictions.
A cat is lazy and busy, dainty and savage, affectionate and aloof, greedy and finicky,
sound asleep in one instant, and awake and stalking in the next.
A cat is a limp puddle of softness, surrounding a steel-hard and ever-alert set of muscles.
... A cat has the face of a pansy flower, and is just as velvety.
A cat holds infinity in her eyes, and your heart in her front paws.
- Leonore Fleischer

Cat Watching a Spider
by Ōide Tōkō
(Japanese, 1841–1905)

"Anything on the ground is a cat toy. Anything not there yet, will be." — saying

The Naming Of Cats by T. S. Eliot
The Naming of Cats is a difficult matter,
It isn’t just one of your holiday games;
You may think at first I’m as mad as a hatter
When I tell you, a cat must have THREE DIFFERENT NAMES.
First of all, there’s the name that the family use daily,
Such as Peter, Augustus, Alonzo or James,
Such as Victor or Jonathan, George or Bill Bailey–
All of them sensible everyday names.
There are fancier names if you think they sound sweeter,
Some for the gentlemen, some for the dames:
Such as Plato, Admetus, Electra, Demeter–
But all of them sensible everyday names.
But I tell you, a cat needs a name that’s particular,
A name that’s peculiar, and more dignified,
Else how can he keep up his tail perpendicular,
Or spread out his whiskers, or cherish his pride?
Of names of this kind, I can give you a quorum,
Such as Munkustrap, Quaxo, or Coricopat,
Such as Bombalurina, or else Jellylorum-
Names that never belong to more than one cat.
But above and beyond there’s still one name left over,
And that is the name that you never will guess;
The name that no human research can discover–
But THE CAT HIMSELF KNOWS, and will never confess.
When you notice a cat in profound meditation,
The reason, I tell you, is always the same:
His mind is engaged in a rapt contemplation
Of the thought, of the thought, of the thought of his name:
His ineffable effable
Deep and inscrutable singular Name.

Gentle eyes that see so much,

paws that have the quiet touch,

Purrs to signal "all is well"

and show more love than words could tell.

Graceful movements touched with pride,

a calming presence by our side --

A friendship that takes time to grow --

Small wonder why we love them so.
