A feline masterpiece


Sir, – I really enjoyed Fionnuala Ward’s “All fur one – An Irishwoman’s Diary on cats” (February 11th).

However, as Leonardo da Vinci said, “the smallest feline is a masterpiece”, and so may I respectfully suggest to Fionnuala that the next time the cat she mentions visits her garden, rather than engage in a staring match, she sees it as a work of art that would put the Mona Lisa in the ha’penny place! – Yours, etc,
