The 'Cat'

The above picture (hopefully of a Royal Bengal Cub) is to remind you to do your bit for this endangered species!


Why the Cat way? ‘coz its ‘Purrfect’! For all the clue-less non-cat people out there…its about cool, moods, grace, efficiency and meowre…

The Rum Tum Tugger is artful and knowing,
The Rum Tum Tugger doesn’t care for a cuddle;
But he’ll leap on your lap in the middle of your sewing,
For there’s nothing he enjoys like a horrible muddle.
Yes the Rum Tum Tugger is a Curious Cat–
And there isn’t any need for me to spout it:
For he will do
As he do do
And there’s no doing anything about it!

T. S. Elliot


“He will kill mice, and he will be kind to babies when he is in the house, just as long as they do not pull his tail too hard. But when he has done that, and between times, and when the moon gets up and night comes, he is the Cat that walks by himself, and all places are alike to him. Then he goes out to the Wet Wild Woods or up the Wet Wild Trees or on the Wet Wild Roofs, waving his wild tail and walking by his wild lone.”

Rudyard Kipling


“Only a few find the way, some don’t recognize it when they do – some… don’t ever want to. ”

“You can’t help that. We’re all mad here.”

– The Cheshire Cat from Alice in Wonderland


# All I do is eat and sleep. Eat and sleep. Eat and sleep. There must be more to a cat’s life than that. But I hope not.

# Odie, let’s talk effort versus return here. You know, you can still lead a pointless life without all that running around.

– Garfield


“Thou art the Great Cat, the avenger of the Gods, and the judge of words, and the president of the sovereign chiefs and the governor of the holy Circle; thou art indeed…the Great Cat.” – Inscription on the Royal Tombs at Thebes


“A black shadow dropped down into the circle. It was Bagheera the Black Panther, inky black all over, but with the panther markings showing up in certain lights like the pattern of watered silk. Everybody knew Bagheera, and nobody cared to cross his path, for he was as cunning as Tabaqui, as bold as the wild buffalo, and as reckless as the wounded elephant. But he had a voice as soft as wild honey dripping from a tree, and a skin softer than down.”
— Rudyard Kipling (The Jungle Books)


“I know it is wet
And the sun is not sunny.
But we can have
Lots of good fun
that is funny!”

“Look at me!
Look at me!
Look at me NOW!
It is fun to have fun
But you have
to know how.”

The Cat in the Hat – Dr. Seuss
