Colette was the source of many well-known cat quotes:
--Our perfect companions never have fewer than four feet.
--There are no ordinary cats.
--By associating with the cat one only risks becoming richer.
--Time spent with cats is never wasted.
--The cat is the animal to whom the Creator gave the biggest eye, the softest
fur, the most supremely delicate nostrils, a mobile ear, an unrivalled paw and a
curved claw borrowed from the rose-tree.
