The Tabby As Sage

‎”I have studied many philosophers and many cats. The wisdom of cats is infinitely superior.” – Hippolyte Taine, French historian and ailourophile, who died 5 March 1893.



I asked one of my cats about this claim, and he told me that, epistemologically speaking, it was “prima facie.” Then he dismissed me and went back to napping, which he calls “somnolent metaphysical inquiry.”
