the green eyes

I Feel the Same Way
The cat is a creature of most refined and subtle perceptions naturally.
The contrast in this respect between cats and other animals is very striking. I will not wrong the noble canine nature so far as to say that it has no delicacy, but its delicacy is not of this kind, not in actual touch, as the cat’s is. The motions of the cat, being always governed by the most refined sense of touch in the animal world, are typical in quite a perfect way of what we call tact in the human world. And as a man who has tact exercises it on all occasions for his own satisfaction, even when there is no positive need for it, so a cat will walk daintily and observantly everywhere, whether amongst the glasses on a dinner table or the rubbish in a farmyard.
Roger Caras Treasury
The cat is domestic only as far as it suits its own ends; it will not be kenneled or harnessed nor suffer any dictation as to its goings out or comings in. Long contact with the human race has developed in it the art of diplomacy, and no Roman Catholic in medieval days knew better how to ingratiate himself with his surroundings than a cat with a saucer of cream on its mental horizon.
I will admit to feeling exceedingly
Proud when any cat has singled
me out for notice; for, of course,
every cat is really the most beautiful woman
in the room. That is part of their
