SUPERIORS. Four legs, an agile body that can twist when in the air and ensure landing on all fours. We are light, we are sleek. We have a beautiful fur covering to ensure we're not cold and it's waterproof too though I'd prefer not to mention water (ugh) if I can. We have wonderful whiskers with which we can gauge whether we can get through a space, though inevitably we can.
DOGS. Four legs, a reasonable agile body though obviously not as good as a Superiors. Can land on all four feet from the air sometimes but not always. They're heavy, they're not very sleek except for a few, Greyhounds, Whippets, Borzois etc. They have a good fur covering though it's not as soft as mine, I mean as soft as a Superiors. They have whiskers but rarely the intelligence not to get stuck in tight places.
HORSES. Four legs. Fleet of foot but not very agile. A body that doesn't twist in the air to help them land on all fours. No whiskers to help them and capable of getting stuck anywhere.
COWS. Four legs. That's about it as far as I can see. ( Apart from providing milk).
LONGLEGS. Well, where do I start? Obviously the Goddess was having an off day which is why she ended up putting them in our care to serve and look after us. They have only two legs. They are at least upright but couldn't beat a Superior in race, except maybe the cow Oh, and they could beat a tortoise for sure. Can't very often land on two feet from the air without falling straight over. Some are sleek some are not. They have no fur, just a very light down on their body and a clump on their head. Some of the males grow whiskers but they're not very useful, mind you some of the women grow them too. They have no concept of whether they can get through a tight space and very often end up with their heads stuck.
I tell you all this so you can see that all the animals are of a better design than the Longlegs and that of the animals only one deserves to be called Superior. I believe that once we were referred to as Cats but that when all other animals realised who far advanced we are they called us Superior to them and the name stuck. See, a lesson from me brings in so much, I can even teach history at the same time.
An ancient haiku:
full moon glows whitely;
it laughs at the sad Longlegs
who does not purr back
Proof of flexibility
