Raphael Bordallo Pinheiro worshiped cats. He, in a comic strip in the newspaper "Antonio Maria", confesses to being "cat in a previous life". His cats were well known in his cartoons and in his ceramic pieces, maybe because cats are frequently scratching, an attitude very similar to his cartoons’ political satire.
