    • I thought I do this a second time. People liked my first quote list too. I think a lot of these quotes are close to reality… they describe cats well 😀

  1. Some of these quotes are not true. Especially the ones that say ”cat owns you”. People who believe that cats have staff are far from be coming a master in cat education.

    • I am not sure if you are kidding or serious. If you are serious, then you disqualified yourself right away, because by implication, you gave yourself the title “master in cat education”. Apply some logic and find the interline of the often used ”cat owns you” statements, especially by comparison with the behaviour of dogs. Generally, quotes are not meant to be universally valid facts, they are just statements or observations of single individuals, they echo an idea, of course you are allowed to agree or disagree with the idea. I am just sure the persons I quoted wouldn’t call themselves master, you gave yourself the title. If your “master in cat education” statement was humor or serious, I can tell you it made me laugh 😀
