EXTRAIT

In regard to the origin of the domestic cat, naturalists have squabbled and
fought for centuries, and the best thing possible, I think, is for every man
steadfastly to retain his own opinion, then everybody is sure to be right. For
myself, I really cannot see that it would either assist us in breeding better
cats, or render us a bit more humane in our treatment of the pretty animal, to
be assured that she was first imported into this country from Egypt or Persia
in the year one thousand and ever so much before Christ, or that the father of
all the cats was a Scottish wild cat, captured and tamed by some old Highland
witch-wife a thousand years before the birth of Noah’s grandfather. What
matters it to us whether the pussy that purrs on our footstool is a polecat
bred bigger, or a Polar bear bred less?
