George the Pharisee

"We were talking about cats and dogs the other day and decided that both have consciences but the dog, being an honest and humble person, always has a bad one, but the cat is a Pharisee and always has a good one. When he [the cat] sits and stares you out of countenance he is thanking God that he is not as these dogs, or these humans, or even as these other cats!" ~C.S. Lewis, in Letters to an American Lady.

Absolutely correct! My Pippin looks at me so condescendingly at times, I have to wonder if he has any affection for me.

Oh, I know how to tell George likes us. When we've been gone for a few days and then return, he stalks off as if he has better things to do than to see us and then sits with his back to us. Usually he just ignores us unless we have food.

George is all cat.
