I love that Mark Twain was a cat lover! These are great. Thanks for sharing!
What a great quote and picture!
Twain also liked to play billiards, including with his young friends. The rule was, if a kitten was asleep in one of the pockets, that one was off limits, which made for very interesting games!
I've always liked that about Mark Twain - he was a cat lover!
I wonder if he owned any? I remember this fact about him though. Love that you featured it.
Cats ànd men...a great combination!
Every time I see those photos of Mark Twain with the kittens, it makes me smile.
Well, hey, I learn something new every day!
I didn't know that Mark Twain was a cat lover. Thanks for sharing that with us.Hugs,JB
I did not know he was a cat lover. I should have figured with his intelligence and quick wit that he was.
great people have great cats thanks for sharing have a great day
A wonderful writer who had a true appreciation for cats! That makes him extra-special to me! His "Diary of Adam and Eve" is one of the most delightful things I've ever read! :-)
I always loved Mark Twain and I love him more knowing about his love for cats ... good choice, McGuffy Ann ...Andrea @ From the Sol
I always liked Mark Twain as a writer. Then I found out he was a cat lover, and liked him even more! :)
I love my furry cat too:)
I love this post! Mr. Twain was a very wise man. Sorry I haven't been around much lately, it is the cats I use for an excuse. We have our last spay/neuter event of the year coming up this week and once it is over maybe I can get back to blogging, at least for the rest of the year.
I love that he was a cat lover. Almost makes up for him dissing Jane Austen. LOL! Seriously though, I have always loved his writing.
