I know, I know. Most people are forced to read this book in school. Somehow I never had to. So I read it now. Animal Farm by George Orwell was written (I assume) as political commentary. And yes, I got that. In the end, there was no distinguishable difference between pigs and humans.
What caught my eye, however, was the cat. He puts in only periodic appearances throughout the story. He never puts in his share of the work to get things done. But because he purrs and is snuggly, he gets away with it. Sounds pretty much like all cats I've ever met.
Like most cats, his loyalty and love go to whomever is serving as a food source. Fickle beasts!
