  6. Yeah, cats are like that. I think of Yeats's "The Cat and the Moon" (hope I'm remembering the title right).

  11. Bill's comment made my curious, and yes:

    William Butler Yeats:
    The Cat and the Moon

    The cat went here and there
    and the moon spun round like a top,
    and the nearest kin of the moon,
    the creeping cat, looked up.

    ....

    A closed fence --
    the cat opening
    it's heart
