THE BLACK CATS PAGE
Here we all are, members of the big family of cats. News, at last,
the Feline World. So, even, if it may sound ridicular, my name is
Tom Cat. I'm the good-looking guy, second to the right. To my
that's left from your side of the screen, of course, there's my
wife, Caterina Black. And the bigger one of the kids is Felix, the
Our adventures are due to be set into Cyberspace by my good old
Herb Severing, who has got a close watch on what's happening
We live happily together in Felisville, our hometown, somewhere,
Preparations for Christmas...
Now that Thanksgiving is over, Christmas is rushing nearer and
and the speed is getting faster and faster. Even in our Felisville
there's a lot of things that don't allow any hesitation:
town, the shops and the house, baking the finest cookies, cakes,
you'll ever see, thinking about all kinds of presents and ways of
And then there's the great day - presents everywhere, joy and

more prosperity to our community and a lot of hustle...
Winter's hardship is hard to bear, sometimes...
Christmas just gone by, the new year just begun, the weather is
to the colder side. Snow, rain, icy rain at last. The whole feline
is struck by nature's bad mood. All cats cling to their homes and
behind stoves or beside heaters. And, power lines broken down,
colder. Fridges and freezers out of work, our Black-Cat family is
Kitty, the little one, finally has a brilliant idea. All sorts
edibles are being stored outside, so that the goodies will be
for a long time...
Spring is almost here...
While winter's strength is weakening day by day, days grow

but our cats enjoy life during this period of environmental
Kitty's waiting impatiently for Easter. She wants to watch the
Bunny this time. Her brother Felix distrusts the legend, is
eager to go
for an egg hunt again, though. Mood's rising everywhere when
on its way...
Spring is here to stay...
Easter and Easter Bunny turned out to be as nice as always. The
are lighthearted, willing to help their parents with their work in
greenhouse and in the garden...
Summer at last...
Happy days are here again. School is out for summer. Kitty and
are eager to go on vacation, somewhere way down south, where there
blue skies every day. No duties, just dozing in the warmth of the
The sea looks great, but a cat is not anxious to go swimming in
blue. During this time of year, our cats can't imagine those lazy,
days of summer ever coming to an end.
Back home in Felisville, there is a terrible drought, meaning
of water for some weeks. Even in September it's still pretty hot
the feline grounds...
Fall's turning foliage...
into a festival of colors, from red to brown and yellow. Leaves
falling down, whiles others are tumbling in the autumnal air,
moody winds. All the cats in Felisville realize winter not being
off. As days turn shorter, and nights grow longer, nature seems to
sort of a ghoulish perspective, now and then. And it's not so long
it's time for All Saints' Eve, Halloween.
Felix and Kitty go out into the woods and get nasty sticks and
they look for pumpkins in the fields, which are useful for all
things. They serve as scarecrows' heads, as lanterns, after
holes have been cut out to let them look like beings from
'way beyond all cats' knowledge. The children like to go around
evening, and get back with loads of sweets, most of them real
shape. Some are made of chocolate, looking like ghosts, other
orange-colored, and are tasting awful sweet.
Opening the Holiday Season
After Halloween, nature's obviously come to a rest. Thanksgiving
lying ahead. Time for a great family gettogether, the prospect of
as much as you could, that's simply great. Considering this, even
frightening prospects of meeting all those relations from
of different ages, is becoming a lot more bearable.
And true enough, our cats gladly welcome their aunts and
their grandparents, and a whole bunch of cousins. Many of them
delicious things they had prepared back home for the occasion.
There's just one connection to us from the Human world, and that
our Irish relatives on the occasion of St. Patrick's Day?
