A Purrfect Home

A home without a cat, and a well-fed, well-petted and properly revered cat, 

may be a perfect home, perhaps; but how can it prove its title?

–Mark Twain 

Mark Twain was one of America’s best-loved authors. Apparently, outside of his wife, he loved cats above all things. He said in Abroad with Mark Twain and Eugene Field, “I simply can’t resist a cat, particularly a purring one. They are the cleanest, cunningest, and most intelligent things I know, outside of the girl you love, of course.” And with no offense to dog lovers, of which there are many, a true cat lover believes his cat to be superior to all other creatures. In Mark Twain, a Biography, Twain says, “By what right has the dog come to be regarded as a “noble” animal? The more brutal and cruel and unjust you are to him the more your fawning and adoring slave he becomes; whereas, if you shamefully misuse a cat once she will always maintain a dignified reserve toward you afterward–you will never get her full confidence again.” This, of course, may be the very reason some of us prefer dogs – they are far more forgiving than cats! 

One cat simply wasn’t enough for Mr. Twain. He loved his heap of cats that curled up together in his wicker chair. Mark Twain was asked: “What is better than a cat?” To which Twain is supposed to have replied: “Two cats!”

The Grace of a Cat

If animals could speak, the dog would be a blundering outspoken fellow; but the cat would have the rare grace of never saying a word too much.  ~Mark Twain

The Evergreen Animal Protective League has kitten siblings available for adoption – Arapaho, Apache, and Comanche are full of life and into everything. The kittens were born in mid-April, and they are waiting to be taken to a *just right* home. Visit the EAPL to meet them, and look at the other adorable kittens waiting for their forever homes. Or, if it suits you better, there are many adult cats to meet, as well. You can fill out adoption paperwork online, then come in to meet these graceful beauties in person.
