Such devotion should come as not surprise. Human beings are fascinated and beguiled by the mysterious aloofness of cats; their swift prowess as hunters; their sensuous, sculpted bodies; their elegant, acrobatic grace and agility; their kittenish curiosity and mischief: and their regal dignity. Our lives with cats are not only ennobled, they are made longer; studies show that owning a cat alleviates loneliness, anxiety, and depression: reduces stress, high blood pressure, and heart disease: and adds six months to the average person's life....
For us Cat Lovers (ailurophiles, if you prefer a fancy word for that tribe), magical, mystical cats are a blessing to life. They.....
Warm our laps and our hearts
Give us someone to talk to and to spoil
Create a bond with other cat people
Turn common household objects into cat toys

Remind us that life is mysterious
Inspire poets, writers, moviemakers, creators of musical theater, artists, and cartoonists
And hold the purr strings to our hearts
So we can write in our diaries in praise of our kitties and friends....
