The Measure of a Cat

...the animal (cat) shall not be measured by man. In a world older and more complete than ours, they move finished and complete, gifted with extensions of the senses we have lost or never attained, living by voices we shall never hear.  They are not brethern, they are not underlings; they are other nations, caught with ourselves in the net of life and time.
