Home is...

Home is where the cat is

I heard this saying many years ago and was surprised when I googled that term. I found hundreds of websites offering all sorts of items with this quote – t-shirts, signs, mugs, pillows… you name it. Proof enough that this is certainly true if a whole industry is based on that. At least it’s true for everybody who loves cats and that’s probably most of us.

I sometimes find my daughters watching funny cat videos or cute kitten videos for hours, they just can’t get enough. Surely, we will also get a cat sooner or later, there is no way to escape. One day a cat will choose us and make our house his home.

No matter if you need someone to play, to cuddle or you just need a good laugh, a cat has everything you are looking for – if he or she is in the mood of course.

Why do so many people feel that a cat makes a home

“Just watching my cats can make me happy.”

– Paula Cole

Every cat has its very unique personality. Usually if they want something their way there is nothing you can do about it. It’s those little things that make them almost human, a cute, fluffy little companion that shares the same home and amuses us.

“I love cats because I enjoy my home; and little by little, they become its visible soul.”

– Jean Cocteau
