We are all aware of the fact that cats have it all – curiosity, an endless sleep, company, and all, only when they want it. When a cat`s human friend isn’t happy, the cat is not happy. Not because the cats care about our mood but because they’re are thinking up ways to get even. Anyway, our understanding of cat’s intelligence is far from perfect, but they, the cats, wonder if we are conscious. We accept that they are clever and we like to think that they will treat us well when the day of their Kingdom comes.
Members of the feline family have long fascinated the human race. Although unrelated to cats, the name itself of famous American writer Tennessee Williams’ play Cat on a Hot Tin Roof, and the derivative 1958 drama film, are just one example among many. Cats being revered as deities in Ancient Egypt represent an additional classic illustration. The following pictures of small (domestic cat, lynx, bobcat and others) and big (tiger, lion, puma and other animals) felines depict some of these amazing wonders of nature.
