Early modern cats

Professor Mondo offers a near-convergence of mah interests - cats and early modernity (though really the cat poem is earlier than early modernity). A tip to my future self who owns a cat farm - names for future cats: Tibert, Meone. (It's a big question, what to name your cat. You have the panoply of real person names to choose from, but there are additionally names of philosophers, statesmen, and literary heroes to consider. Plus fruits, vegetables, and other animals. So a much bigger set of options than children's names, unless you are of the view that children can be named things like Pineapple, or Hobbes.)
