paid for, feeds and on occasion Kicks mm
with all the easy familiarity of ownership.
He follows that man nndoubting ana un
noticed, grateful for a word, even thankful
for an oath.
But the cat is a creature of a very differ

offers of reward. She absolutely declines
instruction; nay, even jiersuasion is lost
nnon her for auy permanent effect it may
