Lilian Jackson Braun

  • Cats have a contempt of speech. Why should they talk when they can communicate without words?

  • The more you talk to cats ... the smarter they become. An occasional 'nice kitty' will have no measurable effect; intelligent conversation is required.

  • At dinner time he would sit in a corner, concentrating, and suddenly they would say, 'Time to feed the cat,' as if it were their own idea.

    • Lilian Jackson Braun
  • To understand a cat, you must realize that he has his own gifts, his own viewpoint, even his own morality.

Lilian Jackson Braun, U.S. writer

(1913 - 2011)
