    Now, that's damn funny. I need to insert a "cat with bat" dispute resolution clause into my next contract.

    Interesting that you choose to depict this as a human-cat relationship as against a human-dog relationship or for that matter a human-dolphin relationship.

    Doesn't that itself set the equation for the rest of the dealings?

    Cats are crafty...they feign love, command a healthy relationship, and get what what want in a subtle, but effective manner :)

    That was a really funny depiction of taking control. As Phil aptly said, Cats are smart and know how to get things done.
