Famous cat lovers and haters

cute-cats-in-bedMany people feel very strongly about cats.  Did you know that William Shakespeare referred to cats about 40 times in his plays?  He was not particularly nice.  In fact, he even called cats “vile.” Unfortunately, his audience agreed.  Back in the days of Shakespeare, people linked cats to witches.  President Eisenhower disliked cats also and stayed away from them as much as possible.

Abraham Lincoln and the Italian dictator Mussolini loved and cherished cats as did author Ernest Hemingway. Hemingway like cats so much that he had 34 of them!  You can still find descendants of these cats at his former home. These cats are unique in that they have an extra toe.

This author is a cat lover and I have two of them. I pamper them with cat treats and cat toys and always give mine lots of love.
