    A complex sentence has one independent clause and one or more dependent clauses (e.g., When we have time, we play chess). A cat, archetype of independence, just has claws.

    And if said cats were on the beach, would they have sandy claws?

    I found it, I found it! Look:

    "A complex sentence" is a more complex sentence than "a cat" - than - "a cat" is more catter than "a complex sentence"?

    Yes they would. And if they got away, they'd have escape claws.

    That's it! A cat has claws at the end of its paws, and a complex sentence has a pause at the end of its clause.
