    Cats are contradictions: tooth and claw Velvet - padded;
    Snowflake - gentle paw
    A fist of pins;
    Kettles on the purr
    Ready to spit;
    Black silk then bristled fur.

    Cats are of the East -
    Scimitar and sphinx;
    Sunlight striped with shade
    Leopard, lion, lynx
    Moss - footed in a frightened glade;
    Slit eyes an amber glint
    Or boring through the darkness as cool as jade.

    What do you not understand?
