“Like a graceful vase, a cat, even when motionless, seems to flow.”
– George F Will
“Actually, I do happen to resemble a hallucination. Kindly note my silhouette in the moonlight.” The cat climbed into the shaft of moonlight and wanted to keep talking but was asked to be quiet. “Very well, I shall be silent,” he replied, “I shall be a silent hallucination.”
― Mikhail Bulgakov,The Master and Margarita
For photographers: (Canon EF 85mm f/1.8 USM lens) All images f/2.0, 1/8000 sec, ISO 400. I created the silhouette by metering for the light outside the window and not the cat.
“Her ears, lightly fringed with white that looked silver, lifted and moved, back, forward, listening and sensing. Her face turned, slightly, after each new sensation, alert.

― Doris Lessing, On Cats
