Catseyes at the Zoo

The resigned gentleness of the leopard I saw in the cage was in sharp contrast to the fires of napalm, yet its orange fur and basic nature called it a great predator. One of the most disturbing stories I have read is With Folded Hands by Jack Williamson, about a race of androids that imprison humanity in a cocoon of safety and idleness. All the captive generations descended from the one leopard father have been resting with folded forepaws for too many years, their world stolen from them by human curiosity.
