To watch a cat stalk and catch his prey provides a lesson rarely matched in the form and function of a strong, supple, well-developed animal. After watching and waiting, sometimes for hours, once prey is sighted, he calculates size, distance, even wind direction, then he melds every part of his body into a single unit of naturally-flowing strength, grace and speed to bring down his next meal.
Would any of us be willing to sacrifice either form or function in the makeup of our cats? Every move of those glorious beasts simply cries out the definition.
Small wonder that so many car manufacturers have enhanced their fastest, sleekest models with feline names.
Let's view the parts of a cat's anatomy that meld into a whole of inimitable form and function.
