Cat behind the window

“The cat I am talking about is a real cat […] It doesn’t silently enter the room as an allegory for all the cats on the earth, the felines that traverse myths and religions, literatures and fables.”
Jacques Derrida

In 19th century Paris, “rather than embracing an animal who helped to instantiate man’s dominion over nature,” the dog, bohemians and intellectuals allied themselves with the cat, who shared the same values.

“When street traffic dwindles and most people are sleeping, some New York neighborhoods begin to crawl with cats. They move quickly through the shadows of building; night watchmen, policemen, garbage collectors and other nocturnal wanderers see them — but never for very long. […] The roving, independent, self-laundering cats of the streets live a life strangely different from New York’s kept, apartment-house cats.”
Gay Talese
