Which is true of some cats. Others (and Jazz fits the bill) can be decidedly potty mouthed. Which is probably one of the very few times I have disagreed with Mark Twain.

Valerie-Jael said...

Good quote. My Kitty was always very vocal, especially when I didn't get out of bed at 6 a.m. sharp to feed her! Hugs, Valerie

Natalia said...

I like that quote, very true!

Andrew said...

In my experience, Twain was on the mark with behaviour at least.

Christine said...

Fun quote

Natalie Aguirre said...

Great quote. Living alone, I wouldn't mind an animal that could talk.

CJ Kennedy said...

Cats rule and dogs drool! 😺

Birgit said...

Dogs are great and they do yakety yak. Many cats do not talk at all and just give you a look while they swat your Salk shaker off the table. Our one cat, Kaspar, is very vocal and has separation anxiety when hubby is outside...the meows are so mournful

Jeanie said...

Mark Twain obviously hadn't met Lizzie, the Mouth.

Sandra Cox said...

I hear ya. This new kitty gripes more than any cat I've had:)

Sandra Cox said...

There's always exceptions to the rule:)

Sandra Cox said...

Heh. Your own personal alarm clock.

Sandra Cox said...

My dog is certainly blundering and outspoken:)

Sandra Cox said...

Glad you liked it, Christine.

L. Diane Wolfe said...

He's never heard our cats get excited for their treats.

R's Rue said...

Mark Twain hasn’t met my poodle

D.L. Finn said...

Very true! It would be our fog telling on our cats:)

Bleubeard and Elizabeth said...

I like what CJ wrote. I have one vocal cat and one that purrs, but is soft spoken. Guess you can tell that Bleubeard is the vocal one, since he's the face of our blog. In this case, Twain was only half right.

Sandra Cox said...

Twain was quite a philosopher/author wasn't he?

Sandra Cox said...

Wouldn't that be great. I've always been fascinated by the gorillas that have been taught to communicate with us and the parrots that have been taught to talk.

Janie Junebug said...

Franklin is probably an outspoken fellow. Penelope doesn't have much to say.

Love,
Janie

Lee said...

Hahahahaha! So true! :)

Sandra Cox said...

Yes they do:)

Sandra Cox said...

Ha.Ha. Or Callie. But we need to let him keep his illusions:)

Sandra Cox said...

Heh.

Sandra Cox said...

Heh. Our kitties do love their treats:)

Sandra Cox said...

Interesting. What's your poodle like?

Sandra Cox said...

Heh:)

Sandra Cox said...

I'll give him three quarters, since there are many cats like he describes:)

Sandra Cox said...

Penelope is probably an excellent listener.

Sandra Cox said...

Sounds like your cats are graceful instead of noisy. We have quite the mixed bag today:)

RO said...

What a very cool quote Super Sandra! Hugs and Happy soon to be Tuesday! RO
