“EAR and attend and listen; for this befell and behappened
and became and was, O my Best Beloved, when the Tame animals
were wild.
But the wildest of all the wild animals was the Cat. He walked
by himself, and all places were alike to him.”

“But the Cat keeps his side of the bargain too. He will kill mice and he will
be kind to Babies when he is in the house, just as long as they do not pull
his tail too hard. But when he has done that, and between times, and when the
moon gets up and night comes, he is the Cat that walks by himself, and all places
are alike to him. Then he goes out to the Wet Wild Woods or up the Wet Wild Trees
or on the Wet Wild Roofs, waving his wild tail and walking by his wild lone.”
