We mentioned Mark Twain earlier this week, which reminded the mom of some of the fun things he did with kitties.
He taught his cats to jump up in a chair
on the command "Come Up"
and at the words "Fast Asleep" to "fall asleep".
When he told them "Wide Awake"
they would "wake up".
Pretty smart kitties!
It looks like these kittens are in training for "Come Up".
One summer vacation he solved the problem of having no cats around by renting a litter of kittens.
He also enjoyed having a kitten or two in his coat pockets.
Anyone who judged a person by whether they liked cats is cool in our book! We wonder if there were computers back then, if he would have had a blog. He certainly had enough kitties for one!
I don't know who is standing with Mark Twain,
but they both are carrying cats and
have kittens on their shoulders.
"When a man loves a cat, I am his friend and comrade
without further introduction."
"If man could be crossed with the cat
it would improve the man, but would deteriorate the cat."
Finally one more thought from Mr. Twain, "A home without a cat - and a well-fed, well-petted and properly revered cat - may be a perfect home, perhaps, but how can it prove title?" Definitely our kind of person!
Have a great weekend, dear furriends! Purrs!
