CAT FANCY 



I wish I could write as mysterious as a cat.
~Edgar Allan Poe

What do I care about the purring of one who cannot love, like the cat?
~Friedrich Nietzsche

A cat's rage is beautiful, burning with pure cat flame, all its hair standing up and crackling blue sparks, eyes blazing and sputtering.
~William S. Burroughs

A man who carries a cat by the tail learns something he can learn in no other way.
~Mark Twain

If you really want to learn about life, get a cat. Because the world is his.
~James Cromwell

Everything comes to those who wait... except a cat.
~Mario Andretti

I believe cats to be spirits come to earth. A cat, I am sure, could walk on a cloud without coming through.
~Jules Verne

You call to a dog and a dog will break its neck to get to you. Dogs just want to please. Call to a cat and its attitude is, 'What's in it for me?'
~Lewis Grizzard

BLACK CAT by Rainer Maria Rilke 



A ghost, though invisible, still is like a place
your sight can knock on, echoing; but here
within this thick black pelt, your strongest gaze
will be absorbed and utterly disappear:

just as a raving madman, when nothing else
can ease him, charges into his dark night
howling, pounds on the padded wall, and feels
the rage being taken in and pacified.

She seems to hide all looks that have ever fallen
into her, so that, like an audience,
she can look them over, menacing and sullen,
and curl to sleep with them. But all at once

as if awakened, she turns her face to yours;
and with a shock, you see yourself, tiny,
inside the golden amber of her eyeballs
suspended, like a prehistoric fly.
