Who wears the pants in the family? You would expect that the answer would be, “The man, of course.” Not necessarily. In one old story, probably from Africa, the cat seeks a bigger creature to protect him. Each time he finds a protector, a larger predator kills off the protector. So he finally puts himself under the protection of a man. But when the man enters home, he is chased from the house by his angry wife. The cat concludes that the woman is the strongest protector.
