Often I read sayings or quotes about cats and think how particularly clever or funny they are. Some people have the amazing ability to perfectly put into words what the rest of us may be thinking and give us a laugh.

The funny cat sayings in this post are sometimes written a long time ago by famous writers but not certainly not always. There’s a mix of modern comedians, actors and writers also.

Enjoy These Funny Cat Sayings With Photos!

I love this quote (in the image below) from Lewis Carroll.

I agree with Lewis Carroll, it doesn’t matter what words you use when speaking to the cat, the cat will purr.

Maybe it is more to do with the tone of the voice used.

Saying “very naughty kitty”, in a cutsie voice will still have the cat purring.

I don’t know if Ben Johnson can really take credit for being the first person to say this. It’s a really well known quote. I think it translates into human behaviour by meaning – take care! Don’t poke your nose in where it is not wanted.

The behavior of cats and dogs is different. Maybe we all need at least one of each to appreciate the differences.

Love this quote from Eckhart Tolle. We often associate cats with another realm.

 another cat quote. picture of a boy petting a cat

Kids love cats, sometimes too much. I have had to rescue our cat from overfriendly kids. Stories about cats for kids are always appealing and often have a bit of a life lesson.

Some cats look more suited to this than others but as a cat owner, I would agree with this.

We don’t judge. Do your own thing!

Herding cats sounds like an impossible task. I can imagine this is just what it would be like. Trying to bring everything together and then something slips away and has to be redone. I have never tried herding cats or making movies – too hard!
