Quotes and 6 Words or Less

Happy Thursday everyone! Today is my day to blog, but Mom is going to cut in-phooey!

The Cat on My Head   challenged us to The Quote Challenge- here are the rules:

  • Thank the blogger who nominated you: Thanks The Cat on My Head  for this opportunity to reveal a bit about myself through the quotes I selected.
  • Post three of your favorite quotes (this can be done all in one post or on three consecutive days).
  • Nominate 3 bloggers and challenge them.

I challenge: LadyBird, Dezi and Lexi and Katie– and anyone else that wants to play.

And here are my 3 favorite quotes- I am sure you won’t be surprised that they are all about cats.

  1. “Time spent with cats is never wasted”- Sigmund Freud.  I can’t think of a better way to spend my time.
  2. “When a man loves cats, I am his friend and comrade without further introduction” Mark Twain.  Same here, once I know a man or woman loves cats, I know they are kind-and smart too.
  3. ” I love cats because I love my home, and little by little they become it’s visible soul.” Jean Cocteau. This rings so true for me, I am a homebody and I do love my house, every part of it is for the comfort and enjoyment of the cats.

I also want to tell you about the 6 words Coach Daddy, this month was how we’d improve ourselves and I loved everyone’s answers. Please check them out and tell Eli you want to join next month’s 6 words.

And now back to a very annoyed Phoebe- 008Hi again, yesterday was Joanie and Sammy’s birthday. Joanie got her own bag of treats and Mom wrote Joanie only on them. I can’t believe that brat Joanie doesn’t have to share. Grammie was here though so we all got some other treats. I love my Grammie so very much. Her birthday is this month so I must come up with a great present for her.

001My grass isn’t doing so well. And I can’t blame Mom- or can I?

See you Sunday and I best not have to share my post with Mom. And Monday we are starting a new giveaway with a black cat theme.




  1. Our “quote post” is this Thursday, too. Good quotes! I am familiar with them all. Twain is a very favourite of mine. I have even visited his town.
    We love black cats! We look forward to that post!
    Happy birthday to your furkids. We have two in November and one in December.

    1. Joanie and Sammy thank you. They are about the only cats we know their exact birthday and I don’t even know if it is , but their paperwork from the shelter said it. I love Twain too and have been enjoying his huge autobiography as it comes out in volumes. Black cats are great, but every color is great 🙂

  2. Purrfect quotes. Mom knows all of them. Phoebe, don’t begrudge Joanie a few areas. You know you get your share. XOCK, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo

  3. Great quotes! And it’s a shame about the kitty grass, but don’t blame your mom because for some reason it never lasts that long. We have the same problem here.

    Purrs xx

    Dezi and Lexi

    1. You are right that Phoebe’s Grammie will take care of her in the treat department. I can’t wait to read your quotes 🙂 XO and love to you all.

  12. Those are some great quotes! Also, the cat grass in our house never lasts long. The furbabies always mow it down to nothingness, and no amount of watering seems to salvage it.

    1. Glad you like the quotes. Cat grass is hard to keep growing, the kitties are like little goats.

  13. We loved all those quotes! Our grass never lasts long in the house either — probably because it doesn’t get enough sun and we keep munching it.

  14. “Time spent with cats is never wasted” is a quote often attributed to either Colette or May Sarton. I know it isn’t Freud though because he didn’t like cats and was a self-professed dog lover!

    All great quotes that our Mama also loves! 🙂

    the critters in the cottage xo

    1. I thought it was Colette too, but I looked it up and got Freud, I should have checked more than one place.

    1. I can’t wait to see your favorites. I love the one on your blog that says”don’t cry before it is over, smile because it happened.”

  15. There are a ton of great cat quotes out there, Ellen. I wonder if any are actually from cats! Great to have you in six words again, and thanks so much for sharing it here.
