A cat who is treated with love and respect grows lovable, calm and very rarely expresses aggression or any negativity. Having a happy cat with a good behavior is such a rewarding experience. A cat who is healthy, happy and content is easily recognized by the body language. His tail is held upright, eyes are blinking slowly and ears pointing upward.
Women may see a man who owns a cat and think that he is more sensitive and caring compared to others. Cats also provide love and affection single men probably wouldn't normally get. On top of that, science has proven that petting a cat and hearing it purr can help bring down stress levels. Jane Ganahl makes a strong point that women like men who like cats. Having a cat can greatly benefit your life and it could be a “babe magnet” factor for some lucky men (493).
As the Caterpillar teaches Alice how to master the physical changes she is going through, so the Cat teaches her how to fit into this world on the next level–social, i.e. on the level of behaving in a socially acceptable manner. The Cheshire Cat indicates to Alice how many rules, if they come into question, prove irrational and even crazy, since they are not in accordance with the nature. A very good example of this is a tie; social norms stipulate that a tie should be worn in all formal occasions, while its practical use is completely missing. The Cheshire Cat states that, “I laugh when I’m sad, and I cry when I’m happy,” (Carroll 19), which makes it “mad”, but in fact that kind of behavior is authentic and normal for it. Therefore, complying with the prescribed social norms very often makes one behave as a self-deluded, and even a mad person, with regards to their real nature and their inherent attitudes.

Mary Joby Job HS12H028 Drama S. P. Dhanavel 19th October 2015 Cat on a Hot Tin Roof: The Paradox of the Absent Gay Character 1. Introduction In literature, paradoxes, an anomalous juxtaposition of contradictory ideas are often used in order to bring to light an unexpected insight. As Cleanth Brooks, a member of the ‘New Critical’ mentions in her seminal work, Language of Paradox, paradoxes can be used as tools of critical interpretation. Understanding Paradox talks about how there is a constant need to study literature from the perspective of paradox and about how paradox is life and literature itself.
Near the end of the paragraph, it is said the narrator “approached and saw, as if graven in bas relief upon the white surface, the figure of a gigantic cat”(Poe 853). The author utilizes thorough imagery to represent the figure of a cat engraved into the wall. This imagery foreshadows two elements of the story. As the black cat motif obviously is not coincidental, it predicts the arrival of a new cat, or arguably the reincarnation of the initial one. It symbolizes the return of the feline and the continuation of the narrator’s problems.
In these two stories Poe uses foreshadowing in way that if the reader spots the small details or Poes “word playing “ he/she can predict what will happen or get a hint of what will happen. In Black Cat there are few foreshadows. One foreshadow is when the narrator sees a cat in the wall and Pluto`s color being black is believed to be unlucky and in this story the narrator is unhappy and unlucky. The narrator gets gouth because of a cat being inside a wall.
