A cat may look at a king, they say. I think that even the lopped-off head of King Hintsa of the Gcakela (The good, the great & the ugly, 18 March) would turn to stone if stared at long enough by the petrifying Bar-B Battle Hymn of Java, the groomed Persian you featured (Modern Times, 18 March). He didn't look at all "freeze-dried", as one observer remarked, just very, very disgruntled and extremely disapproving. For anyone with a guilty secret, it was a most disturbing sight to encounter over breakfast on a Saturday morning. You should have printed a warning on the contents page.
