Click here to hear the author read his words:
He saunters, sleek, plump and unconcerned, through the filthy streets, indifferent to the resentful scowls from mangy moggies and ragged urchins alike.
He is known, of course, and no one dare touch him, the most envied cat, the most hated creature, in this dilapidated city.
When a scrawny cur emerges from his home under a pile of junk and moves to attack eager watchers hold their collective breath in anticipation.
The cat barely breaks stride, but his tail stands straight, a full metre* high, every hair of his glossy coat quivers tall, his claws extend and he spits fury.
As the dog slinks back into his hole the cat continues, unmoved, to his place of work.
There his soft fur is stroked and caressed, and his delicate tongue cleans the excess fluid from the breasts of the wealthy young mothers in the maternity hospital.
