Foxes are clever and tigers are cunning. So, what's your cat's safety school?

My cats were home-schooled, and hope to grow up to be models for a drawing class. Their safety school is the Rhode Island School of Design, where they plan to pose provocatively while they sleep, wash their asses, do feline yoga, kill their mouse toys, and hopefully topple over a few vases full of flowers. Art is kinetic that way. All for the price of a can of salmon.
