"Take a bird— a canary in its cage— put it on a table— then let a cat jump up and walk around the cage, glaring at the canary. What happens? The canary, seeing its enemy so close to it is frightened almost to death. But if it had understanding, it would know that the cat couldn't reach it while it had the protection of the cage. Not knowing this, it suffers a thousand deaths- through fear." --The Cat and the Canary (1922) by John Willard
