I too strongly identify with this lazy space cat.
When Kepler found his long-cherished belief did not agree with the most precise observation, he accepted the uncomfortable fact. He preferred the hard truth to his dearest illusions; that is the heart of science.

The cave hyena (Crocuta crocuta spelaea)
Some more reconstruction art based on Pleistocene mammals, this time the cave hyena, weighing in at a whopping 100-110 kg. It has longer and more muscular legs than the modern african counterpart giving it less of a sloped back. Its shoulder reached about 100 centimetres (modern hyenas are around 80 centimeres)
Cave paintings reveal that the cave hyena retained much of the appearance of the spotted hyena, with spotted pelt, rounded ears and slightly sloping back
