Do you enjoy some of the cat sayings you find on plaques, note cards, pillows, coffee cups and other items? Do you have a favorite? Someone gave us a sign that says, “The more people I meet, the more I like my cat.” My dad put this magnet on his fridge, “If you want the best seat in the house, move the cat.” And then there’s the one about the fact that dogs drool and cat’s rule.
Here are some additional sayings I found for our enjoyment—some from famous people in history.
