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.”
“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)
