The cat’s face, it’s been said, is all eye.

I consider myself quite fortunate, having had the pleasure of living with cats, from whom I think a great deal could be learned.

They possess a certain quality of passion, of attentiveness, yet a fierce and tenacious independent spirit, one which refuses to be tamed, tempered, or even molded, like that of the dog.

It’s no wonder to me that cats were worshipped by the ancient Egyptians and yet persecuted by historical Christians.

Society’s treatment of cats- who steadfastly refuse conformity, assimilation, subjugation and supplication- provides quite an illumination of motive, value, and above all, inclination.
