    "All cats are beautiful" is a rather audacious statement, in my opinion, and can easily be falsified.

    1. "All cats" denotes every single member of the cat species (Felis catus).
    2. Should there be a proven (ugly) exception, the point that "all cats" are "beautiful" would instantly be refuted.
    3. At least two of such examples are known to mankind. One: is one of my student's cats, which, a foul-smelling, obese, shaggy, balding creature, cannot be called "beautiful" by any interpretation of the term. The other: is my step-father's cat, which used to impress its environment with nothing but feats of a hideously low, shady and evil character, and therefore cannot be called "beautiful" either.
    4. By these examples it is proven that there are SOME cats which are NOT BEAUTIFUL, and therefore the statement that ALL cats are beautiful is false.

    q.e.d.

    ...not to mention the sheer existence of kitty litters.

    This has proven nothing. The ugliness of your specific examples has not been submitted for any sort of peer review.

    The case for ugly cats can be proven more easily, however: one need only to post an image from a certain long-running stomach-turning Broadway musical that makes use of exceptionally creepy looking cat costumes.

    Oh Rhu, it's you! I was hoping you'd grace this thread with a poetry gem of yours.
