anything not nailed down is a cat toy*

I would love to play the part of the completely jaded, cynical, and always ready to rampage librarian, but as i am sure you have noticed, i do have a certain weakness for cute little fuzzy things. Such is the case with Rachael Hale's photography (and yes you've seen a few of those pics here.)
*and in my house many of those things that ARE nailed down are as well!
Well, i must also confess to possessing photo albums, cat journals, and two books: 101 Cataclysms: for the love of cats and Smitten: a kitten's guide to happiness (and for those of you whose adorable taste runs more to the canine than feline--or just less feline and to cute animals in general--she does have too much cuteness for you as well).
Now, in addition to pictures there are wonderful quotations~and i do love quotations~i have quotations scribbled everywhere~anytime i see or hear something that strikes as especially witty, interesting, nonsensical, or whatever~i feel i must jot it down~don't know what i will do with them all, but they just seem so profound somehow...
101 Cataclysms includes quotes like "Dogs believe they are human. Cats believe they are gods," "The more people I meet the more I like my cat," (both anonymous) and, of course, "If man could be crossed with a cat it would improve man, but it would deteriorate the cat." (Mark Twain) Smitten offers "Consciousness: that annoying time between naps." (anonymous) and "Now and then it's good to pause in our pursuit of happiness and just be happy." (Guillaume Apollinaire) as well as so much more.
So, if you ever feel the need for a Cute coffee table book, or know someone who does (or have need for a Cute book you might need to hide under the bed~tho, here again, in my house things hidden under the bed are the cats' domain {i like to pretend that things elsewhere are my domain but as i'm sure you know it's ALL the cats' domain~i just live here~or, more accurately~i'm just cat furniture}~or some other appropriate hiding place to keep that jaded mask in place) Rachael Hale is a perfect source!
(and for a quick fix there is always cuteoverload)
