Realities Dim In Spacetime Without Coincidence

If roses smell as they do to us, how must they smell to creatures who can really experience odor, like cats? Is there a "like" involved there (some people, of course, "dislike" the smell of roses, while others, such as me, think they smell "really amazing")? Do some cats "like" how roses smell, & some "dislike" them? Or do such puzzling creatures just accept them as geographical markers indicating place without ever thinking of "like/dislike" — rather as most adults do plain grass? It wouldn't surprise me if a child's reaction to the smell of grass mimicked a cat's reaction to the smell of roses. But then again, it wouldn't surprise me if it didn't. Would it surprise a cat?
