Subject: [Leica] IMG: Cat / Plato

A guard cat, looks harmless, but worse than a German Shepherd as far as UPS 
FedEx are concerned.  USPS only gets a growl.

Plato, in "The Republic", uses the analogy of philosophical dogs; the 
of the ideal polis will be like philosophical dogs who are friendly to the 
people they know, but defend against outsiders.  The guardians are meant 
seriously enough, but perhaps the philosophical dogs are a joke.

The cat has absorbed too much Plato.
