Hello, I'm hoping for some help on a translation of a Leonardo da Vinci quote for a tattoo. I've tried a couple of online translation websites but would like to make sure the translation is correct before actually doing the deed, so to speak. The quote is "the smallest feline is a masterpiece" and the translation I've gotten back from two different sites is "Tá an feline is lú ina shárshaothar". Is this right?

Thank you in advance for your help with this! I took a couple of Irish Gaelic classes 20 years ago when I was in Cork but with no one to converse with back in the US, I've lost most of what I learned. :(

"feline" isn't an Irish word.
There's féilíneach :

Tá an féilíneach is lú ina shárshaothar.

Edit:
The Italian original version is probably:
Anche il più piccolo dei felini, il gatto, è un capolavoro.
so:
Tá an féilíneach féin is lú, an cat, ina shárshaothar.
or
An féilíneach féin is lú, an cat, is sárshaothar é.
