Category-homotopy analogy

There is an analogy between the objects of study in category theory and the objects of study in homotopy theory (from topology), as well as their interactions with each other. I don't quite understand this analogy well enough myself to do it justice or make it rigorous, but as I understand it the intuition is something like this:

category-theory

homotopy-theory

topology
