10 Delightful Quotes for Cat Lovers

Cats embody an air of magic and mystery that sets them apart from other domesticated animals. Cats are always just a whisker away from being wild — yet they still choose to live with us.  It is not surprising then that many a philosopher, poet, writer and politician have had their imaginations set on fire by the mere presence of a feline in their lives.

Below, I have compiled a list of some of my favorite quotes that capture the essence of our feline companions — ENJOY!
