BS: and Tarski would not say that the sentences (e.g. of cat biology)
    for which we have a formal model are themselves about that model.

JA: Yes, but Tarski was a professed (confessed?) nominalist, and thus
    his "official position" is lacking in a certain usability when it
    comes to discussing how realities impact on our representations,
    which they strangely persist in doing no matter what we say or
    think about it.
