Q: Quotes about Cats

Today’s letter of the day in the A to Z Blog Challenge is…the letter ‘Q’. Which leaves me totally stumped. I know when I start seeing everyone else’s posts with the imaginative words they’ve come up with, I’ll go, “Oh, yes! That’s a great word. Why didn’t I think of that?” I lieu of any exceptional words coming my way, I’m going with ‘Quotes’. Of course, they’ll be about cats. Enjoy!
