  The Cheshire Cat is a fictional cat popularized by Lewis Carroll
in "Alice's Adventures in Wonderland" and known for its distinctive mischievous grin.
...And its ability to appear and disappear at will.


What sort of people live about here?

‘In that direction,’ the Cat said, waving its right paw round, ‘lives a Hatter: and in that direction,’ waving the other paw, ‘lives a March Hare.

Visit either you like: they’re both mad.’ ‘But I don’t want to go among mad people,’ Alice remarked.

‘Oh, you can’t help that,’ said the Cat: ‘we’re all mad here. I’m mad. You’re mad.’

‘How do you know I’m mad?’ said Alice ‘You must be’ said the Cat ‘or you wouldn’t have come here’.
