“constitutional cat”

Dictionary of Unusual Constitutional Terms:
constitutional cat
S wift, multidisciplinary feline with a honed instinct for the pursuit of law mice.  Contrary to academic speculation, the constitutional cat is not at all “supraconstitutional,” that is, outside the basic grundnorm.  On the contrary, she finds her natural office in the constitutional fauna under the doctrine of necessity, and therefore she operates quite spontaneously within the lawfully existing constitutional order.
