Racial Intimidation

When I saw this article in the Post-Gazette:

Someone spray painted religious and racial slurs inside a Fayette County kennel
I immediately thought of this T. S. Eliot poem that serves as the closing number in the musical Cats:
The usual dog about the town
Is much inclined to play the clown
And far from showing too much pride
Is frequently undignified
He's such an easygoing lout
He'll answer any hail or shout
Cats seem to have an innate racial hatred of dogs. Why else would these unspecified slurs show up in a kennel, if they were not directed at the dogs?

And what about the religious slurs? Apparently the cats thought that the canine faith was too DOGmatic.
