Quote of the Day (Mark Twain, on Cats)

"A cat is more intelligent than people believe, and can be taught any crime."—Mark Twain, Notebook, 1895

He was Sherlock Holmes’ archenemy, the one described by the great detective, in “The Adventure of the Final Problem,” as “The Napoleon of Crime.”

And so you see it here, in these eyes that don’t miss a trick…

“Cat burglar” is the least of what he could become…
