8. Chapter Eight

As I open my eyes, I'm almost certain I'm waking up in my bedroom and this has all been a dream. I rub my eyes and sit up and sure enough I'm still in Vixens living room on the sofa bed. I look around and can see sunlight appearing through the curtain. It must be really early. I get up and as I walk towards the door I can hear voices. I make my way through into Vixens kitchen. Vixen is standing up at her worktop making sandwiches and wearing a small apron, her three kittens are sitting at the table drinking saucers of milk.
"Good morning celeste" Vixen says cheerily. "I'll make you some breakfast soon I just have to wait for the milk cat as these three rascals have just had the last of it"
"Ok thank you no problem" I answer.
I take a seat at the table and Vixens three kittens look at me warily.
"How come your in our world?" one of the kittens asks
"Patches don't be rude" another answers.
"I really don't know" I answer "A cat lead me here, Jasmine"
"You is a spy innit" one of the kittens asks suspiciously.
"A what? no I'm not a spy" I answer hastily.
"Kittens Please" Vixen says. "Celeste is our guest here, Celeste meet my kittens Hattie, Patches and Smokey"
We're interrupted by a knock at the front door. Vixen hurries to answer it. I can't really hear what's going on. A few moments later Vixen returns with two bottles of Milk.
"That was Tom the milk cat," she says as she puts the bottles of milk in the fridge.
I can't believe they even have milkmen here, well milk cats.
"Right here are your lunches children now off to school with you" Vixen says handing each kitten their lunchbox.
As the kittens get up I notice they are all wearing school uniforms and they are all packing their lunches into their little backpacks which Vixen is helping them with, and then it goes quiet.
"Well that's given us some peace and quiet" Vixen says taking off her apron. "I've got some cereal here if you'd like?"
"That'd be lovely thank you"
While I'm eating my cereal vixen is drinking a cup of coffee.
"Where have your kittens gone?" I ask Vixen
"Gone? why they've gone to school" is Vixens reply.
"School? kittens go to school?"
"Of course they do, the younger kittens go to nursery but my three are in primary school, in the juniors" explains Vixen.
I'm starting to realise that the cats world isn't quite as different to ours as I had imagined.
"So if your kitten are one how old are they in cat years?" I ask vixen
"well they not quite one yet there're only six months to thats about seven in your years, see time here goes fast, by the time they're one they'll be equal to fiteen in your world"
"What about your last litter how old are they?"
"They're all grown up now, they're all 5 so thats equal to around thirty six in your world" she says "makes me feel old really"
"what do they all do? do they still live here?" I ask Vixen
"Mmm yes well three still live here, Poppy is a teacher at the school, Rosebud works in the market, and Jimmy works at the police" "the other two left catnip city, Ben works at Pest control pussycats in cat den town and Phillis is in the royal navy, she works on one of the ships as a chief mouse catcher"
"Amazing you must be really proud of them"
"Oh I am they are my pride and joy"
"Can I ask you a question?" I ask Vixen suspiciously
"Of course you can" Vixen answers "anything"
"This might be a bit cheeky but if your eldest litter is five and equal to thirty six in my world then er how old are you?"
Vixen giggles, "You promise you won't laugh"
"of course not" I say to her.
"Ok well I'm eight and in human years thats erm around er forty eight"
"Really? wow that is amazing, you look so young" I'm amazed
"Well technology has changed there are options for us older cats now but the trick is eating right, I have a good diet now, well no I don't because i eat far more then I should hence all this fat but the food I eat is good quality"
Me and Vixen are sitting happily eating, everything seems really calm after all the trouble from last night. I'm looking around Vixens kitchen and it is really just like my kitchen back home, there's an oven. a microwave, a sink, tea towels, a kettle, teapot, cupboards everything. The only difference is that everything is just a bit lower down then it is in our world.
Vixen jumps across to the worktop and walks over towards the window. She happily sits watching over her garden. Tail flicking.
"What are you doing?" I ask Vixen
"hmm just perching for a little while" she says without turning around.
"Perching? what's perching?"
Vixen giggles, "It's what us cats do, we enjoy looking out of the window and watching, it's just called perching."
I walk over to join Vixen by her window and am amazed as I look out into her garden. It's beautiful. It's quite small but lovely, there are a few small bushes in pots, a few flowers and then a tree at the end of the garden catches my eye, it has bird feeders hanging from it.
"Vixen why do you have bird feeders? I thought cats hunted birds" I'm getting confused, maybe it's a bird trap.
"Oh no no no your thinking of bad cats, most of us cats befriend birds. We have to look after them. We chatter to them to say Good morning and see if they have any gossip. But if any cat dares to hunt or catch a bird they have to answer to the Queen. She does not tolerate any hurting of any other animal."
"Not even mice" I ask.
"Especially not mice" "I'd hate to be a cat that crossed the queen"
I'm a bit scared by this, their Queen sounds like a scary person.

We're disturbed by a noise at the front door, it's the doorbell. Vixen hurries off to answer it.
"Celeste it's Jasmine for you"
"I'll be right there" I call back.
As I get to the front door vixen runs a paw over my hair and licks my face.
"You have a good day now little one."
"Thankyou Vixen and thank you for having me"
"No problem at all."
Vixen closes her front door and me and Jasmine are left on the street. I didn't really get a good look at the street last night as it was getting dark, but in the daylight you can see just how pretty it is. The milk cat is still delivering his milk. A post cat is doing his rounds. Cats even get mail? and Vixen wasn't kidding, as we're walking down the street I spot quite a few cats "Perching" by their windows.
"Oh Celeste I have so much fun planned for you today" Jasmine says with a puur.
Why am I starting to feel nervous now?
