In Praise of Cat Hair

All your wondrous wealth of hair,

Dark and fair,

Silken-shaggy, soft and bright

As clouds and beams of night,

Pays my reverent hand's caress

Back with friendlier gentleness.

From: "To a Cat"

by Algernon Charles Swinburne


Commentary by HRH Queen Bambi

This gentleman poet from England at the turn of the last century certainly had an excellent appreciation of cats and knowledge our fur is that beyond many humans. His understanding of the magical quality of cat hair is obvious with his term of reverence in relation to his hand touching cat hair.

By looking at a picture of him, it appears he has an abundant head of hair, himself. Perhaps in one of his past lives he was a Persian!
