5. Chapter Five

Jasmine and I have arrived at the cafe Jasmine had chosen for us to have lunch. It wasn't too far to walk and we now seem to be in a really pleasant side street. It is filled with pretty little shops which all have beautiful window boxes full of vibrant floral displays outside. It looks really lovely.
We're at a cafe called 'Rileys Cafe' and I'm not really quite sure to what expect.
As we walk through the door the welcoming aroma of freshly cooked food fills the air. It smells quite nice infact.
"Welcome to Rileys cafe, my names Riley and this is my cafe" says a large fat black cat.
"Oh Riley you really must stop doing that every time someone walks in" Jasmine says with a sigh.
"Wearing a bit thin now is it?" Riley asks. "wait who's your friend"
"It certainly is" Jasmine says with a slight laugh. "Riley this is my friend Celeste she is here from the human world."
"ah a guest well say no more" Riley is saying. "Go fetch yourself a table and I'll be right over with the menu for you"
Riley certainly seems a character, I don't think I've ever seen such a fat cat. He seems friendly enough though.
 As I look around the cafe it looks just like any regular cafe in my world. It's about the same size with I counted 8 tables which are all very busy. There are two elderly cats sitting in the corner both enjoying what looks like a cup of tea. Then just across from us is another cat with two small kittens in high chairs who seem to be kicking up a bit of a fuss.
"Here are your menus ladies, Take your time and I'll be back in a minute to see what you fancy." Riley says handing us each a menu and wobbling off back behind the counter humming a song.
I look over the menu:

I have to admit there's not really much of a selection for me, so I opt for the Jacket Potato served with Tuna and a cup of tea. Meanwhile Jasmine has ordered a Tuna Casserole with a side salad. Riley is pottering around cooking up something or other. The whole cafe has such a relaxed atmosphere.
The tranquility is disturbed by a sudden horrible wrenching sound. As I look round behind us I can see a big orange tabby cat getting into a panic, coughing and sounding as though he's trying to be sick

"HE'S CHOKING" comes a cry from a small grey cat sitting across. "Someone Help"
the poor ginger cat is really wrenching now, I'm getting a bit scared. He can hardly talk

"waer waer" he whispers

"WATER RILEY GET HIM SOME WATER" Jasmine calls out.

Riley comes rushing over with a saucer of water and hands it to the ginger cat who gulps it down in one before wrenching again. Then he starts to cough. He gets down on the floor and his stomach is flopping then he lets out and almighty "beurrgghhhhhhhh" and onto the floor falls a ball of fur.

"All of that drama for a little hairball" Riley says, rubbing his forehead. "Henry you'll never change"
"Hey can I help it?" Henry says whilst washing his paws. "sorry for the commotion folks carry on enjoying your meals"

I've seen cats hock up a hairball before but he was so dramatic with it. He certainly caused quite a stir.
It isn't long until Jasmine and I have finished our lunch, we say goodbye to Riley and Jasmine pays the bill then we head out onto the quiet street, although now it's not quite so quiet. There's a sound of music filling the air. It sounds a bit jazzy.

"Oh wonderful it's the Jazz Cats" Jasmine exclaims, "come along hurry you'll want to see this"

I follow her to the end of the road and playing on the corner we see four cats. There is a chubby grey and white cat wearing a trilby hat playing a saxophone. Then there's a skinny siamese cat playing a trumpet, a tortoiseshell playing the drums and a black and white cat playing the double bass. They are all dressed in black suits and matching trilby hats and are all dancing around the street corner playing their music. It is really quite catchy. They've drawn quite a crowd and cats from the crowd are throwing treats and toy mice into their cases. Before long they have around fifty cats all lining the streets watching them play. All the cats in the crowd are tapping their tails to the music and some are clapping.

Then the music is interrupted by the sound of sirens approaching. The Jazz cats stop playing and the street falls quiet, and everyone has wandered upto the main street to see what's going on. I guess cats really are too curious. The sirens get closer and four police motorbikes drive past us with Police cats on, followed by two blacked out cars, behind them is a very posh stretched limo, then two further blacked out cars and more motorbikes.
the convey stops and pulls up outside a very tall building, which I've only just noticed is a hotel. There are whispers of

"is it her" "is she here" "who is it" "I think it's her"
"What are they talking about?" I whisper to Jasmine
"It's Miss Tail Meow Arriving" Jasmine whispers back.
"Who?" I ask
"She's a very famous popstar cat, she has a concert here tonight"
I can't quite believe what I'm hearing, there are even celebrity popstar cats in this world.
A door of the limo opens and outstep two grey tabby security guards dressed in sharp black suits and sunglasses. As they open one of the back doors of a limo I catch a slight glimpse of Miss Tail Meow darting out and into the hotel, covering her head with a towel so noone can see her face. A swarm of camera flashes goes off, I didn't even see the photographer cats arriving.
"Typical Tail Meow" Jasmine says "you only ever see her onstage, oh celeste you must come to the concert"
"I'd love to, but what about my mum back home if I'm gone all night she'll worry"
"don't worry, time here moves differently in our world, here we got through five days in one of your human days" Jasmine explains to me
"Well great thats that settled then"
"We can book you a room in the hotel" Jasmine says "you'll be quite comfortable there"
"You'll do nothing of the sort" comes a voice from behind us "you can't leave a little one on her own"
We turn around to see a big fat black cat with a big smile
"Oh Vixen hello" Jasmine says. "Celeste this is Vixen"
"Hello Vixen" I reply
"You'll be more then welcome to stay with me" Vixen says with a slight accent
"Vixen is a burmese, she comes from Burma" Jasmine says to me in her low voice.
"Of course you'll have to put up with the kittens but they'll be no trouble" Vixen says with a purr
"why thank you, how very kind of you Vixen" I say to Vixen whilst stroking her head.
"I'll bring her by later then" Jasmine says
As the crowd start to disperse and go their separate way Jasmine and I are walking along discussing what we'll do next. We're walking along the town centre. I can see a queue of cats along one side of the street.

"What are they queueing up for?" I ask Jasmine
"That's the cinema queue, looks like they're all waiting to see the new Garfield film. He's quite a celebrity down here"
"Garfield" I say We have that film in our world too
"Garfield was once a resident right here in Catnep city, he used to work in Rileys cafe but he got sacked for eating too much of the food. Then one day he received a letter saying someone wanted to write a book on him then that was it, the book was published and then came the film. Garfield of course wanted to play himself so he left Catnep City for Hollywood and he hasn't ever come back"
"Wow" I exclaim have any other famous cats lived here
"Well a few still do, you know that tabby cat in the whiskas adverts, well her name is Heidi and she still lives here"

It seems like catnip city really is the place to live if your a cat. We come across a few shops. Jasmine and I decide to look in a few. We come unto a shop called 'Collar delights' we walk inside and there are display cabinets filled with jewelled collars. They look really expensive. There are pink leather collars with what look like diamonds in. I look at one collar right in the middle of the cabinet. It is beautiful. It's a light pink faux leather material with real heart shaped diamonds all around. Then I notice the price tag 1,000,000 kibbles.
"Is that a million kibbles?" I ask the shop keeper
A smartly dressed cat in a suit comes over
"Indeed it is miss, one million kibbles to be precise, however this particular one has been specially made for her majesty the queen Sox"
Wow that is one expensive collar. I look around and there are some cheaper imitation collars with diamontes instead of diamonds for 100 kibbles. Cats here must really like they're collars but they are really expensive.
We walk into the shop next door called Candies Sweet Shop. There are quite a few kittens in here buying sweets. I look round at whats on offer. There is a pick n mix with cat chocolate mice, foamy shrimps, catnip crunches, yoghurt drops, cat chocolate buttons. The there is a shelf of colourful lollipops and packets of sweets.
Jasmine buys herself a small pick n mix then turns to me
"Celeste it is getting late we must go get ready for the concert"
and off we go to Jasmines house.
