Once upon a time, I absorbed the following jingle from a Garfield cartoon:
Cats are keen, cats are great, cats are clean, they like your plate.
It’s not exactly Shakespeare, I know, but it can serve as an earworm if you haven’t heard any Madonna lately.
This week’s essay at Favorite Thing Ever was inspired by the memory of my dead cat Buddha, and all the other felines I have known and loved dearly. But since Canada’s true champion number one Cat Fan is the brilliant hard SF author Peter Watts, it is about him too.
