Why Conservatives hate cats

Today's events have borne out what I wrote for Comment is Free in February:
Tories are natural dog owners. They are drawn to a pack animal that can be trained to do exactly what you tell it. 
Thinking about it, it might be more accurate to say that dogs are natural Tories. 
It would be too tame to call cats Liberals. They are naturally individualists or anarchists – a dog would probably accuse them of being nihilists. But one thing is certain: they are not Conservatives.
