Red face Famous People & Cats 2: Cat Lovers

Famous cat lovers of history:
Sir Winston Churchill (1874-1965) - The statesman enjoyed eating with his ginger kitten, Jock. Servants were often sent to find the pet so meals cound begin.

Albert Schweitzer (1875-1965) - Although left-handed, Dr. Schweitzer would often write prescriptions with his right hand because his cat Sizi liked to sleep on his left arm and could not be disturbed.

Ernest Hemingway (1899 - 1961) - Owner of 30 cats. One of Ernest Hemingway's most unusual cat was a six-toed cat given to him by a ship's captain. The descendants of Hemingway's original cats still live in his estate.

Sir Isaac Newton (1642 - 1727) - Sir Isaac Newton, the scientist who first described the principle of gravity, also invented the swinging cat door for the convenience of his many cats.

It seems to me that there's a misconception that "men like dogs and women like cats." That's silly. Actually, cats are not so "feminine" in character so much as "zen" in character. Cats are much like the Japanese samurai and ninja, really - very masculine (although there were female samurai). The samurai warrior was brutal and ruthless in combat, hacking at each other with those swords (so like the fangs & claws of cats), yet they'd later go home and meditate, write beautiful poetry and paint delicate pictures. Now, to me, that's very cat, the two sides of the Tao. So I'm not surprised that many men have had a deep love for and admiration of cats. CATS ROCK.
