Meow Musings and Next Monday's Show
Posted by Pia
Since last week's Words of Woof post was so well received-- and fun for me to do -- I decided to honor your many requests for a similar post with feline photos and quotes. Enjoy!
1 "One small cat changes coming home to an empty house to coming home." --Pam Brown. Photo of Penne by Dena519
2 "One of the oldest human needs is having someone to wonder where you are when you don't come home at night." ---Margaret Mead. Photo of Starbuck and Boomer by bma70
3 "When I play with my cat, who knows if I am not a pastime to her more than she is to me? "--Michel Eyquem de Montaigne. In photo: Winston
4 "Cats are a mysterious kind of folk. There is more passing in their minds than we are aware of." --Sir Walter Scott. Photo of Emmett by Amanda Taylor
5 "It is in their eyes that their magic resides."--Arthur Symons. Photo of Penne and Ziti by Dena519
6 "There is no more intrepid explorer than a kitten." --Jules Champfleury. Photo of Kitten and Lucky by Robinacsu.
7 "Way down deep, we're all motivated by the same urges. Cats have the courage to live by them." --Jim Davis. Photo of Max and Sami by Blondie8
8 "If you are worthy of its affection, a cat will be your friend, but never your slave."--Theophile Gautier.
9 "Cats never strike a pose that isn't photogenic."--Lilian Jackson Braun. Photo by HelenMB
10 "Cats are a tonic, they are a laugh, they are a cuddle, they are at least pretty just about all of the time and beautiful some of the time."--Roger Caras. In photo: Paloma
In other news, I will be a guest on Martha's show this coming Monday. I will have some cute pooches with me, and I'll be addressing the most common reasons that dogs are relinquished to shelters -- none of which have anything to do with the dogs!
I'll also talk about the questions you should ask yourself before adopting a dog, and I'll demonstrate how to search for adoptable animals in your area using Adopt-a-Pet.com, a free national directory of more than 200,000 adoptable animals, made possible by the pet lovers at Purina. Adopt-a-Pet.com has made a life-saving difference for thousands of animals who are now happily in loving homes.
Please tune in to this Monday's show and let us know what you think!
