Wee Bit Dodgy

From the 1748 Encyclopedia Britannica written by Scotsmen:
Of all domestic animals, the character of the cat is the most equivocal and suspicious. He is kept, not for any amiable qualities, but purely with a view to banish rats, mice and other noxious animals from our houses....Constantly bent upon theft and rapine, they are full of cunning and dissimulation; they conceal all their designs; seize every opportunity of doing mischief, and then fly from punishment....In a word, the cat is totally destitute of friendship.
As read in the book The Know-It-All: One Man's Humble Quest to Become the Smartest Person in the World by A.J Jacobs. Highly & insanely recommended by the I'm so Sorry for this blog staff.
