Zuffi tells us:
Leonardo was fascinated by every aspect of nature, but he had a particular fondness for horse and cats....The famous drawing in Windsor Castle is one of art's most fascinating homages to the cat....[da Vinci] observes and reproduces many different poses with a mixture of amusement and admiration.
Horses, cats: da Vinci got it right, didn't he?
