The cats slept or roamed among the broken tiles with kitty food scattered liberally and bowls of water and CREAM!

Fleece and One-eyed Jake scampered across the courtyard after catching a ride on a fruit truck from the wharf.

“Manna,” smiled One-eyed, “and them cats is too fat to care.”

“Sure beats Miami,” Jake squinted, wriggling his nose. “It’s not the heat — it’s the humidity.”

The Pack settled in for an infest.
