Daily Feline Prompt: Feline Quotes

Do you have a favourite quote that you return to again and again? What is it, and why does it move you?


“Tabby  sleeping again?”

“Mrs. Human I love sleep. My life has the tendency to fall apart when I’m awake” as the great feline writer Ernest Paws Hemingway said.”

“Is that your quote for today Tabby?”

“One of them, there is a quote for all parts of feline life. Do not forget “to err is human, to purr feline” – Robert Tiddles Byrne, meaning that we are the most purrfect creation.”

“But Tabby, without humans like me you would be lost. Who would serve your food regularly and look after your health with annual visits to the vet.”

“Just a small correction Mrs. Human. If you are talking of hard unappetising vitamin pellets, that is not food, that is an excuse for doing the job. And speaking of the vet, there are certain things in a feline life that are superfluous, vet visits being one of them. “There are times in a feline life when vets are not to be seen or heard” and that quote is from me. Of course Cleveland tuna fish Amory, one of our great feline historians remarked “anyone who has ever been around a cat for any length of time well knows that cats have enormous patience with the limitations of the human kind”.

“Which means?”

“You are exhausting my patience Mrs. Human, go and do something intelligent like preparing a bowl of tuna fish or emptying my recycling tray. A bowl of fresh water would also be a good idea. I noticed it has not been renewed for at least two hours.”

“But it is still fresh.”

“That is a matter of how you look at it. The great Tiddles Whiskers said ……”

“Ok Tabby, now go to sleep, you must be tired. In the meanwhile I will attend to your wishes.”

  1. Dear Tabby, My human wrote a book of poetry about cats. She says it’s very bad poetry and that some of the poems were written by cats. Sometimes I despair for her sanity. Yours always and forever, Dusty T. Dog.

    P.S. Here’s one.


    You can never be lonely
    If you have a cat,
    You can hold and pet her
    Or you can simply chat.

    A cat is nice to talk to,
    Agreeable and fair,
    She’ll seldom want to argue,
    She’s just happy being there.

    All you need to do is feed her,
    And pet her once or twice,
    Then, to show her gratitude
    She might bring you some mice!
