The cat


There exists some truth in the most popular saying that while dogs become attached to persons, cats are generally attached to places. A dog will abide by his master anywhere, but a cat keeps to the house it is used to; and even when the house changes hand, the cat will remain there, so long as it is kindly treated by the new owners. A cat does not seem to be capable of the personal devotion often shown by a dog. It thinks most of its own comfort, and its love is only cupboard love.
