Each month we choose a favorite quote--something fun or something to make you think. See the archive for quotes from previous months.



It's not that cats don't like baths.  It's not that cats have a difficult relationship with baths.  It's not that cats chose not to vote for baths in the last election.  It's not that cats would rather choose vanilla over baths.  It's not that cats neglect to send baths a card on their birthdays.  It's not that cats pick baths last when choosing sides for a kick ball game.  It's not that cats think about baths in the same way a fire hydrant thinks about dogs.  It's not that cats look at baths in the same way that a vegetarian looks at ten pounds of raw liver. It's not that cats once bought baths an awesome present that cost an entire month's allowance, and then baths didn't even have the decency to say "thank you."
    It's simply that . . .
        CATS HATE BATHS!
