阅读老舍的《猫》,完成1-2题。
猫 (Māo) the Cat

猫的性格实在有些古怪。说它老实吧,它有时候的确很乖。它会找个暖和的地方,成天睡大觉,无忧无虑,什么事也不过问。可是,它决定要出去玩玩,就会出去走一天一夜,任凭谁怎么呼唤,它也不肯回来。
说它贪玩吧,的确是呀,要不怎么会一天一夜不回家呢?可是,它听到老鼠的一点响动,又是多么尽职。它屏息凝视,一连就是几个钟头,非把老鼠等出来不可!
它要是高兴,能比谁都温柔可亲:同身子蹭你的腿,把脖儿伸出来要求给抓痒。或是在你写作的时候,跳上桌来,在稿纸上踩印几朵小梅花。
它还会丰富多腔地叫唤,长短不同,粗细各异,变化多端。在不叫的时候,它还会咕噜咕噜地给自己解闷。这可都凭它的高兴。它若是不高兴啊,无论谁说多少好话,它一声也不出。
它什么都怕,总想藏起来。可是它又那么勇猛,不要说见着小虫和老鼠,就是遇上蛇也敢斗一斗。
满月的小猫更可爱,腿脚还不稳,可是已经学会淘气。一根鸡毛,一个线团,都是它们的好玩具,耍个没完没了。一玩起来,它们不知要摔多少跟头,但是跌倒了马上起来,再跑再跌。
它们的头撞在门上、桌腿上,彼此的头上,撞疼了也不哭。它们的胆子越来越大,逐渐开辟新的游戏场所。它们到院子里来了,院中的花草可遭了殃。它们在花盆里摔跤,抱着花枝打秋千,所过之处,枝折花落。你见了,绝不会责打它们,它们是那么生机勃勃,天真可爱!

阅读上文后,请对下面提供的两道引导题加以分析。
1. 本文生动细致地描写了猫的哪些特点?流露出作者怎样的感情?
答:
2. 请简单概括一下猫的古怪之处。
答:
