Leonardo Da Vinci - hard to find a more enlightened architect, engineer, sculptor, artist on the planet - bowed to the awesomeness of felines, when he said:

"The smallest feline is a masterpiece."
And, the wise Chief Seattle reminded us:
"What is man without the beasts? If the beasts were gone, men would die from a great loneliness of spirit. For whatever happens to the beasts, soon happens to man. All things are connected."
The infinite humanitarian, Albert Schweitzer mused:
"There are two means of refuge from the miseries of life: music and cats."
He would know, living in the jungle...
So much talk of freedom abounds today, especially from of the mainstream media. It behooves those lashed parrots at e.g., CNN, to heed this observation from American legend, Mark Twain:
"Of all God's creatures there is only one that cannot be made the slave of the lash. That one is the cat. If man could be crossed with the cat, it would improve man but deteriorate the cat."
All the scriptures may be boiled down to this:
"How you behave toward cats here below determines your status in Heaven." Robert A. Heinlein.
And that is the warning to the ghouls who have slipped into the pet food chain, from China to Corporate America.
