Lies and Cats

Kittens / © I.A. Daglis

One of the striking differences between lies and cats is that cats have only nine lives.

Mark Twain (1835-1910)


  1. Wonderful quote! As a fan of famous quotes myself and also a fan of cats, I would like to add:
    1. If a cat does something, we call it instinct; if we do the same thing, for the same reason, we call it intelligence. - Will Cuppy
    2. A cat has absolute emotional honesty: human beings, for one reason or another, may hide their feelings, but a cat does not. - Ernest Hemingway
    3. The smallest feline is a masterpiece. - Leonardo da Vinci
    4. There are two means of refuge from the miseries of life: music and cats. - Albert Schweitzer
    5. No man ever dared to manifest his boredom so insolently as does a Siamese tomcat when he yawns in the face of his amorously importunate wife. - Aldous Huxley

  2. Excellent collection of cat-quotes!
