Cat Lady

In last season’s Mad Men, when Peggy told her mother that she was moving in with her boyfriend, her mother’s reply was “You know what your aunt used to say, if you’re lonely, get a cat. They live 13 years, then you get another one, and another one after that. Then you’re done.”

Best quote ever.

I reckon I’ve got two cats left, maybe three if I eat right.

    More than three, surely! Assuming, that is, that they all lived thirteen years, but many live much longer. Gah, I need to stop analysing this quote! It’s a good quote, in any case. 😀

    I’m glad I’m not the only one who loves this quote. My cats tend to live long. Flower and MiuMiu are not allowed to die until they’re at least 20. I love them THAT much. 😀

    I´ve just seen this right now.
    I wanted to know of your found more bookchairs (of course you did) and saw that quote.
    I´m in my second round of cats now.
    I think I will make a third one, but then……. then I will be sooooo old that I would forget every 5 minutes that I have a cat. 🙂

    Good point! By the time I get to my final cats I shall probably mix them up with my grandchildren. I shall have to everyone “Sweetie” so nobody knows.

    I’ve already gone through my first cat. Won’t get another for several years.

    This is my best quote….

    “Being a child is horrible. It is slightly better than being a tree or a piece of heavy machinery, but not half as good as being a domestic cat.”

    Hello! I especially want to thank you for writing Warriors cats!
    Congratulations! But I have a question …
    On this page, there is a short video where we see someone with her cats. Is this you?
    I’m curious because it’s not like you in your profile photo …

    It’s a character – Peggy – from the TV series mad Men 😀
