100th Post

A simple quote from the TV PBS show called Pets-A Very Natural History by Dr. Alan Beck of Perdue University. At least he got it right.

"The dogs looks to a human and says 'you give me food and shelter, you must be a god'. A cat looks at a human and says 'you give me food and shelter, I must be a god.' "

Another from the same show by Anatole France. "Until one has loved an animal a part of one's soul remains un-awakened"

Whoo-hoo! 100! Nicely done!

Great quote, too! I'm thinking I said it first, but because humans don't understand Meow, I'm not credited.

Oh well...

Good quote, besides, we cats rule the world -- or try to.

Oh, I really love those quotes and they are so true!

Mom says she would like to nuzzle you!!! (should I be jealous?)

William said...

All hail Dr. Beck!

Great quotes, Derby! You felines have never forgotten about those Egyptians worshipping cats. I'm jealous. I don't think anyone's ever worshipped a somewhat strange jewelry artist struggling to be a business person. Ah well, I'm not as handsomely furry as you, either. (Although that's probably a good thing, since I'm human.) Congrats on your hundredth post!
Love,
Robyn

Congratulations on your 100th post Derby! The cat quotes are very true.

Sanjee said...

*kitty frowns* I hate it when Mommy posts comments afore I do.

That's a very handsome picture of you, Derby! You look all regal and just like that quote says, must be a god. Well, at least a King! I'm jealous of your pink nose. Mine is black. Know where I can get pink nose coloring?
