  1. He definitely has catlike qualities (or maybe cats have Morriseylike qualities). In some photos it’s almost as if he’s standing in front of a mirror.

    I used to think you could psychoanalyze people through their choice of pets, but it doesn’t seem reliable. Ernest Hemingway is a stereotypical “dog person” (extroverted, low-inhibition, a man of action), but owned cats. Adolf Hitler is a stereotypical “cat person” (neurotic, high-strung), but preferred dogs.

      Moz is an extreme narcissist, but then he was v. good-looking and took a good photo. Cats aren’t narcissistic because they don’t know how attractive they are. Human faces and bodies are weird and unbalanced by comparison.

      It’s more reliable — and replicable — than most psychology. Cat people and dog people differ strongly enough and often enough for the generalizations to be right.

      Then again, cynophile Adolf was collectivist and authoritarian, whereas aelurophile Hemingway was individualist, like aelurophiles Lovecraft and Burroughs. I still much prefer cats myself, but I no longer think that Britain would be better without cars, canines and coos (i.e. pigeons*). Canines are okay. So are pigeons, in fact.
