That's true, and I did think of it. But I don't think it's distinctive
enough. Cats are *everywhere*, you can't really claim them for
Haskell. You can't ever get to the point where people (even people who
know about it) will see a picture of a cat and think "Haskell", the
way you can with a penguin and Linux, and like you potentially could
with a lamb and Haskell. Other people may disagree, of course. (And
it's a shame, too, because a cat would be a great choice if they were
somewhat more obscure and it weren't the case that every other person
keeps two of them.)
