Now this is an area of astronomy that would interest me. Apart from finding worm holes.

In Ye Olden Dayes people – well witches – looked for cats in the stars. Might try it. We have a nice garden. Neighbours might think we are barmy.

This is what Space.com says:

Not too many people are aware of the term “Cat Nights,” which goes back to
the days when people believed in witches. Old Irish legends have it that a witch
could turn herself into a black cat eight times, but on the ninth time she
couldn’t change back. Supposedly, this is where we get the saying, “A cat has
nine lives.”
