On how to treat a cat:

With Cats, some say, one rule is true

Don’t speak till you are spoken to Myself, I do not hold with that

I say, you should ad-dress a Cat But always keep in mind that he Resents familiarity I bow, and taking off my hat Ad-dress him in this form: O Cat But if he is the Cat next door Whom I have often met before (He comes to see me in my flat) I greet him with an oopsa Cat I think I've heard them call him James But we've not got so far as names

Old Possum's Book of Practical Cats / T.S. Eliot
