Pattern Description:

Cats are great animals to have as pets and they are indeed a very clever species!
I have heard many tales of cats doing some really unusual things associated with intelligence of a very high level.
Most of what I have heard sounded so incredible that I even used to think that these stories were highly exaggerated.
Especially the ones which talk about cats entering certain premises undetected in spite of heavy security systems and burglar alarms being installed.
However, I am aware that there are some cats that are exceptionally clever and are almost able to sense the moods of humans around them.
Make your own cat and see if he is as clever as this one.
