'This is different; an aberration from the normal order of things. With the exception of me, all animals - cats, dogs, horses, spiders, monkeys, whales, cockroaches, germs - live out their lives in the peaceful single-minded pursuit of food, mating and survival. We're products and prisoners of the physical plane. You, and Raff, and all the other humans, are unique in all the fields of reality because you exist on several dozen planes at once. And good for you, I say. Don't imagine I begrudge you any of it. Present circumstances excepted, it's a nice simple life, being a cat.'
