I have something fun and different for you today! For several years now, my human has collected quotes about cats, thinking that someday she would like to put them on either photos or artwork (or both!) for my Zazzle store. And of course, she has never gotten around to it, with the exception of the card below:
So just for fun, I decided to throw 15 of those quotes out there and let you vote on your favorites! You can pick up to five. (If you are looking at this in an email or a reader, you may have to go to my actual blog post to see the poll.) Note that one of the quotes is from me and my human included two of her own:
Maybe this will get my human in gear and she will actually do something with them!
some good ones there I voted,xx Speedy
We voted too, that was fun and those are some great quotes!
I voted for my favourites!

“Some people say that cats are sneaky, evil, and cruel. True, and they have many other fine qualities as well.” – Missy Dizick
Fraidy Kats! says

Cathy Keisha says
The one about cats being photogenic matches your photo.
Oui Oui says
We voted, but our two favorites are both by Mark Twain:
If man could be crossed with the cat it would improve man, but it would deteriorate the cat.
Ignorant people think it’s the noise which fighting cats make that is so aggravating, but it ain’t so; it’s the sickening grammar they use.
But they probably aren’t the best for coffee mugs and such. We did love #1 & 5 (as voting results) – one by you and one by your human.
We just saw you mentioned us on the Cat Blogosphere–thanks!
P.S. We got 6″ of snow and it never got into the 30s today–quite a change from our typical fare!
Layla Morgan Wilde (Cat Wisdom 101.com) says
Wow, we’re happy with those results! As you know I love doing cat photo quotes and have a weekly cat photo quotes newsletter.
Purr Therapy says
Those are all really great quotes. Three of my faves are in the top five, woo hoo!

Feline Yogi says
Oops! Forgot to answer your bonus question that you asked regarding the photo of you at the top of this blog post. The quote that best suits you in the photo is:
Cats never strike a pose that isn’t photogenic. ~Lillian Jackson Braun
Meow and Namste! ~ Pippy the Feline Yogini
Feline Yogi says
Great quotes Sparkle! My human and I have already voted. One of our favorite quotes around our household is:
“Women and cats will do as they please, and men and dogs should relax and get used to the idea.”
Meow and Namaste!

Sue Brandes says
Voted. Was really hard to choose just a few.
Sometimes, Cats Herd You says
Those are great. The English proverb is an old favorite of ours.
Random Felines says
those are great quotes….some we hadn’t heard of before. 🙂
Caren Gittleman says
I also collect cat quotes and love these! I used the Lillian Jackson one once on one of Cody’s photos.
Toby & Leia says
Oh, those are all good. But we chose our fav five.
Caroline’s mad because not one of them had her name in it.
We made our own:
If you want things to Sparkle in your house, hide Binga in a room! 😀
WE loved all of those quotes, but we whittled it down to five, so we could vote. 🙂
We liked your quote best! Because it is certainly true in the woman’s case!
Those are some great quotes! We voted! This is our mommy’s favorite quote so she says it a lot: Cats are on earth to make us smile, a job they do purrfectly! ~BeadedTail
Madi and Mom says
What great quotes Sparkle. We like them all but only voted for 5.
Hugs Madi your bfff
Jacoby, Angel and Coco says
Oh, wow!!! Thanks for mentioning my shop and my blog!!! I actually have a list of Abys and Somalis that need homes in the NY area that I need to post soon…
I have another quote for you…from Paul Gallico. Actually it’s a poem:
Up high is where I like to go
Watching people down below
Thatâ€™s why you find me up a tree
Where no one can look down on me
I love that one. He has a lot of good quotes, though.
I always liked â€œDogs come when they’re called; cats take a message and will get back to you.â€
MomKatt says that one about getting the cat you need is SO true; Morticia came along at a time when MomKatt needed her, and so did Ray & Rachel. And me of course – in all four cases, it was “love at first sight” for her. XOXO
This was fun!
Kitties Blue says
Sparkle, your quote (now in second place) is our very favorite. Mom has the saying that she made up that she uses all the time: “Cat’s are predictably unpredictable.” Thanks for the shopping suggestions. Mom shops at Beaded Tail. She’d even seen and admired that purple bracelet. We’ve been wondering if it stretches enough to be a cat collar. We may have to ask Angel and Isabella to suggest to their Mom that she make some collars. Have a lovely day. Purrs and hugs, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Lisbeth and Calista Jo
Glogirly & Katie says
