while talking about animals seems easy, a thorough analysis on cats is a nightmare. let us see the dogs. stereotypes about dogs are more clear-cut: common sense conceptualize them as long standing markers of faithfullness, accuracy, and addiction to well known spaces. dogs bark when they have too, cats miaou when they want to. we could hardly conceptualize a cat, because all cats are linked to contexts, and yet so dreadfully out of them. it is difficult to categorize them either. we think about cats as agile creatures and lazy things at the same time. we find them attached (.pdf, .jpg, never .doc), yet mostly disconnected and independent. it is impossible to write about cats. apologies for this failure.
