“I will tell you very candidly that two curmudgeons under one roof is one curmudgeon too many - and this holds just as true when one curmudgeon is a curmudgeon person and the other is a curmudgeon cat as it does when both are curmudgeon persons, or, for that matter, I would assume, when both are curmudgeon cats.”
“I object on two grounds to those of you who do not confine your cats. One is that they kill birds - yours and, worse still, your neighbors', people who, after all, are entirely entitled to like their birds as much as you like your cat. The second ground I object on is that the chances of your cat getting injured or killed either by auto mobile, dog, or other animal are not only good - that are, in your cat's lifetime, an odds-on bet.”
“Cats should not be declawed, period - end of argument.”
