With their qualities of cleanliness, discretion, affection, patience, dignity, and courage, how many of us, I ask you, would be capable of becoming cats? —Fernand Mery Her Majesty the Cat

Some of us may hope to become cats or at least to be considered honorary cats. Cats are something many do esteem to be, yet they fall short in one way or another. Personally, I’ll settle for being an honorary cat. That comes with complimentary hair cleanings from my favorite cat. That’s good enough for me.

I have studied many philosophers and many cats. The wisdom of cats is infinitely superior. —Hippolyte Taine

Cats tend to be quiet. Yet, when they are quiet, they are the wisest creatures around. They know how to live with nature without upsetting a balance. They know when to relax and when to hunt. They know when to be serious and when to be playful. We have a lot to learn from watching them. If we watch closely, we might learn their wisdom.
