This month, I needed distractions to keep me on a positive and even keel.

Funny stuff, as usual, is a good standby. I particularly like animal humor; and here I’m sharing some entertaining animal quotes and cartoons.

  • “Cats are rather delicate creatures and they are subject to a good many ailments, but I never heard of one who suffered from insomnia.”  – Joseph Wood Krutch, author, naturalist.
  • “Always behave like a duck  – keep calm and unruffled on the surface but paddle like the devil underneath.”  – Jacob Braude, author.

This one is sure to please cat people and animal lovers. I saw a clip of the cat sanctuary on the “Inside Edition” TV program earlier this week.

Craig Grant has dedicated a 30-acre property in Florida as a home for unwanted cats.

It started when his son was not able to take care of his cat Pepper, and requested Grant to take his cat. Grant grew to love Pepper and her kittens deeply, and soon he was taking in stray cats. The number of cats  snowballed to 150, and then 500.

Using his own money, Grant has designed and built the Caboodle Ranch like a real town for the felines. The “town” is complete with its own police department, town hall, school and a Wal Mart. What fun!

And when I was watching the clip below, the grey-blue houses kind of remind me of kampung houses or tropical structures.

As one can imagine, it takes a lot to feed and care for the cats. In a report in Examiner.com, Grant said that he relies on his own generosity as well as from donations he generates from his website.

It’s enjoyable to watch the cats frolicking in their own little town, and I’m quite sure it will put a smile on your face.
