One of the best book quotes about progeny

    “Old Deuteronomy’s lived a long time;
    He’s a Cat who has lived many lives in succession.
    He was famous in proverb and famous in rhyme
    A long while before Queen Victoria’s accession.
    Old Deuteronomy’s buried nine wives
    And more – I am tempted to say, ninety-nine;
    And his numerous progeny prospers and thrives
    And the village is proud of him in his decline.”
