A Cat's Implicature

Grice adored cats. In one writing, he is considering the Kantian
transcendental subject par excellence and he wonders whether 'cats' should not  
allowed such a status -- he declines.

He kept a few cats notably in his Berkeley home. He named them after the
places where he would find them: there was Sausalito, there was Moraga, and
there was Oakland.

What is the natural expression of intention? ---Look at a cat when it stalks a bird; or a beast when
it wants to escape. ...

---/Philosophical Investigation/s §647
