Quotes about cats for cat lovers Feat. Kim Novak - #1. Albert Schweitzer

If I would ask you who Kim Novak is, you would reply that she is a wonderful, sexy and talented Hollywood actress, very popular in the Fifties and the Sixties and also famous for being a total catch and a sex symbol. She is indeed absolutely glamorous and mysterious in Alfred Hitchcock's Vertigo, and so with your answer, you would be right.



[Kim On Blue
or why for some reason the paper trash can is so incredibly interesting]

And yet Kim Novak, just 'Kim' for friends, is also my cat. A funny, a little bit crazy and for sure absolutely spoiled black cat that moved to Berlin with me. From now on, she will be featured in a series of posts with quotes for cat lovers.

Es gibt zwei Möglichkeiten, vor dem Elend des Lebens zu flüchten: Musik und Katzen.
(There are two means of refuge from the miseries of life - music and cats)
Albert Schweitzer [1875-1965]

The first quote is a funny one, by Albert Schweitzer, able to recognize that it is not possible to be in a bad mood when cats are around. I always thought that animals can feel how we feel and can adapt to our mood and cats are very good at it.
Just when you are having a very bad day, they come to you and want to cuddle. You have to smile, there is no other choice.


[Kim's name comes from Bell Book and Candle
If you don't know it, you should put it on your list]

Feel free to let me know your favorite quotes for cat lovers in the comments!
