Kitty Sayings #2

My Disciples,

Today I bring you another kibble of feline wisdom.  It may sound familiar, but I think humans typically leave off the last part.  The saying is

Curiosity killed the cat, but only because the cat’s guardians weren’t doing their job.”



Yes, we are curious creatures, but it is up to our guardians to give us a safe environment in which to explore our curiosity.

So you should embrace and encourage your kitty’s curious nature, but it is up to you to ensure that kitty’s curiosity does not lead him or her into danger.  Be a true kitty Guardian, and ensure that curiosity never kills the cat.

So Sayeth Otis

  1. Love the kitty sayings…but visiting Granny and RC just keep staring at me like “So? Weren’t you aware of that?”. Thanks Otis

    • We kitties have a tendency to think that humans must know everything, philosophermouse. It’s because you know how to open cans of food, which is something that has thus far eluded us ;-).

    Absolutely, Guardians must keep kitties safe! But I like the idea expressed in another version I’ve heard: Curiosity killed the cat, Satisfaction brought him back.
