Having read the poem,try to guess whether the poet is fond of cats. If so, why does hecall Macavity a fiend and monster?

Yes,it seems like the poet is fond of cats. He calls Macavitya ‘fiend’ and a ‘monster’ because he mighthave wanted to portray an evil side. He might have used a cat inorder to create a negative character who is a criminal and escapeseasily from police. The quick movements of a cat and its mysteriouseyes might have influenced him to create this evil character in theform of a cat.
