Description Source Text

Cats have spread as a domestic animal mostly due to the appearance of rats, these abominable and pestilent nocturnal beings.

In civilised countries, house cats are the only animals of their kind to be usually domesticated and kept at home. Nevertheless, every cat maintains a certain degree of autonomy and complies with humans only in so far as it pleases.

Amongst cats’ senses, that of touch, sight and hearing are the most distinguished. The worst is probably the sense of smell (…)

Cats’ character is in most cases completely misapprehended.
