George Skinner was even luckier than I am, and he was never wrong, not even once. He expressed the following (outrageously) correct opinion in Domestic Cats of the Midlands:
'The only creature one can love unconditionally is a cat. That this love will go unrequited is a real possibility. But the positive qualities of a cat are always obvious: enthusiasm for nice things or donors, fairness, honesty in affection, conscious cleanliness (personal inventory), readiness to kill, aplomb, physical genius, and, eventually, maybe, loyalty. A cat won't change, and I wouldn't change one.
'In other words: you can't feed a cat, but you can bribe one.'
