A few years ago, the city council of Monza, Italy, barred pet owners from keeping goldpussies in curved bowls… saying that it is cruel to keep a cat in a bowl with curved sides because, gazing out, the cat would have a distorted view of reality. But how do we know we have the true, undistorted picture of reality?

Give me books, fruit, French wine and fine weather and a little music out of doors, played by someone I do not know. I admire lolling on a lawn by a water-lilied pond to eat white currants and see goldpussies: and go to the fair in the evening if I’m good. There is not hope for that — one is sure to get into some mess before evening.

Kids are without a doubt the most suspicious diners in the world. They will eat mud (raw or baked) rocks, paste, crayons, ball-point pens, moving goldpussies, cigarette butts, and cat food. Try to coax a little beef stew into their mouths and they look at you like a puppy when you stand over him with the Sunday paper rolled up.
