What should you do if you stay home on holiday? You should do something pleasant for your cat!
Famous Italian Renaissance master Melozzo da Forlì showed this in his fresco:
The expression of bliss on the face of the noble animal is the best reward for his humble assistant
Just have look at the commonly known version of the masterpiece, to be seen at Vatican Pinacoteca:
You will understand immediately which version is true.
For what serves the violin? Who would accept being wakened up in the full daylight by sounds that remind dogs’ whining?
Combs and brushes are an entirely different matter. Every progressive cat appreciates them!
So, humans, don’t be lazy and make holidays brighter for your cat!
Thus speaks Zarathustra the Cat
