"Having a bunch of cats around is good. If you're feeling bad, you just look at the cats, you'll feel better, because they know that everything is, just as it is. There's nothing to get excited about. They just know. They're saviors. The more cats you have, the longer you live. If you have hundreds, you'll live ten times longer than if you have ten. Someday this will be discovered, and people will have a thousand cats and live forever. It's truly ridiculous." -Charles Bukowski
Mum with kids that just happen to have fur.
Hemingway, Burroughs, Capote, Twain, Shaw, and other writers were also fond of felines. Photos HERE.
