The gingham dog and the calico cat,
Side by side on the table sat.
Eugene Field

The Owl and the Pussy-Cat went to sea
In a beautiful pea-green boat:
They took some honey, and plenty of money
Wrapped up in a five-pound note.
The Owl looked up to the stars above,
And sang to a small guitar,
"O lovely Pussy, O Pussy, my love, What a beautiful Pussy you are,
You are,
You are!
What a beautiful Pussy you are!"
Edward Lear

When the tea is brought at five o'clock
And all the neat curtains are drawn with care,
The little black cat with bright green eyes
Is suddenly purring there.
Harold Monro

Lonesome, friendless self-assured,
They walk this earth as if it's theirs,
Belongs to no one, not him nor her,
We say it's my cat, your cat, theirs.
Cat, he walks with attitude,
That says he doesn't care.
F. E. Smith

Felix the cat,
The wonderful, wonderful cat;
Whenever he gets into a fix,
He reaches into his bag of tricks.
Winston Sharples

I love little Pussy,
Her coat is so warm;
And if I don't hurt her,
she'll do me no harm.
So I'll not pull her tail,
Nor drive her away,
But pussy and I,
Very gently will play.
Jane Taylor

"Pussy cat, pussy cat,
What are you at?
Where are your manners,
You bad little cat?"
"Miou," said the pussy;
"Please, may I stay
To afternoon tea, ma'am,
For once in a way?"
"Pussy cat, pussy cat,
What can I do?
There's no cup and saucer,
There's no tea for you."
"Miou," said the pussy;
"Miou, ma'am," said she.
"I don't need a tea-cup,
I never take tea;
Some milk in a saucer,
Is better for me."
Author Unknown

The trouble with a kitten is that
Eventually it becomes a cat.
Ogden Nash

There has never been a cat
Who couldn't calm me down
By walking slowly
Past my chair.
Rod McKuen

Before a cat will condescend
To treat you as a trusted friend,
Some little token of esteem
Is needed, like a dish of cream.
T.S. Eliot

He always had an alibi, and one or two to spare:
At whatever time the deed took place -
Macavity wasn't there!
T. S. Eliot
Macavity: The Mystery Cat.

The Naming of Cats is a difficult matter.
T. S. Eliot
The Naming of Cats.

No heaven will not ever Heaven be
Unless my cats are there to welcome me.
Author Unknown

The mice consult how to preserve their fate By timely notice of th' approaching cat. We'll hang a bell about her neck, cried one; A third replied - but who shall put it on? Moral: Good counsel's easy given, but the effect Oft renders it uneasy to transact.
Aphra Behn

Pussy cat, pussy cat, where have you been?
I've been to London to look at the queen.
Pussy cat, pussy cat, what did you there?
I frightened a little mouse under a chair.
Nursery Rhyme

What is the victory of a cat on a hot tin roof? — I wish I knew . . . Just staying on it, I guess, as long as she can.
Tennessee Williams
Spoken by Maggie, in Cat On a Hot Tin Roof.

A fox was boasting to a Cat of its clever devices for escaping its enemies. "I have a whole bag of tricks," he said, "which contains a hundred ways of escaping my enemies." "I have only one," said the Cat; "but I can generally manage with that." Just at that moment they heard the cry of a pack of hounds coming towards them, and the Cat immediately scampered up a tree and hid herself in the boughs. "This is my plan," said the Cat. "What are you going to do?" The Fox thought first of one way, then of another, and while he was debating the hounds came nearer and nearer, and at last the Fox in his confusion was caught up by the hounds and soon killed by the huntsmen. Miss Puss, who had been looking on, said: "Better one safe way than a hundred on which you cannot reckon."

Cat people are different to the extent that they generally are not conformists. How could they be with a cat running their lives?
Louis J. Camuti

"But I don't want to go among mad people," Alice remarked. "Oh, you can't help that," said the Cat: "we're all mad here. I'm mad. You're mad." "How do you know I'm mad?" said Alice. "You must be," said the Cat, "or you wouldn't have come here." Alice didn't think that proved it at all; however, she went on "And how do you know that you're mad?" "To begin with,' said the Cat, "a dog's not mad. You grant that?" "I suppose so," said Alice. "Well, then," the Cat went on, "you see, a dog growls when it's angry, and wags its tail when it's pleased. Now I growl when I'm pleased, and wag my tail when I'm angry. Therefore I'm mad."
Lewis Carroll

"A cat may look at a king," said Alice. "I've read that in some book, but I don't remember where." "Tut, tut, child!" said the Duchess. "Everything's got a moral, if only you can find it." And she squeezed herself up closer to Alice's side as she spoke.
Lewis Carroll

If I tried to tell you how much I love my cats, you wouldn't believe me - unless your heart is also meow-shaped and covered in stray fur.
Lexie Saige

Cats have an infallible understanding of total concentration - and get between you and it.
Arthur Bridges

It is remarkable, in cats, that the outer life they reveal to their masters is one of perpetual boredom.
Robley Wilson, Jr.

He swings from the chandelier, he paws my peanut butter, and he knocks over my drink in the most unfortunate places in the house - but I still love him like crazy. It's like a hairball in my heart.
Audra Foveo-Alba

If I called her she would pretend not to hear, but would come a few moments later when it could appear that she had thought of doing so first.
Arthur Weigall

I am as vigilant as a cat to steal cream.
William Shakespeare
Henry IV.

If we treated everyone we meet with the same affection we bestow upon our favorite cat, they, too, would purr.
Martin Buxbaum

The cat is above all things, a dramatist.
Margaret Benson

Meow is like aloha - it can mean anything.
Hank Ketchum

A cat determined not to be found can fold itself up like a pocket handkerchief if it wants to.
Louis J. Camuti

Most cats do not approach humans recklessly. The possibility of concealed weapons, clods or sticks, tend to make them reserved. Homeless cats in particular - with some justification, unfortunately - consider humans their natural enemies. Much ceremony must be observed, and a number of diplomatic feelers put out, before establishing a state of truce.
Lloyd Alexander
