The cat is a philosophical, metholodical, quiet animal, tenacious of it's own habits, fond of order and cleanliness, and he does not lightly confer his friendship. If you are worthy of his affection, a cat will be your friend but never your slave. He keeps his free will though he loves, and will not do for you what he thinks unreasonable; but if he once gives himself to you, it is with absolute confidence and affection." ~ Theophile Gautier
