On the sign:
סמל העיר חולון
שני חתולים על ספסל אחד
הסופרת: דפנה חלף גבאי
הפסלת: אילנה גור

[שלט ובו קטע מהספר]
שני חתולים על ספסל אחד
לפעמים... כשפוגשים חתול, עובר במקרה ברחוב,
אנחנו עוצרים לרגע, מסתכלים, ומרגישים, איך חיוך נולד לו בתוכנו,
ולפעמים... כשפוגשים שני חתולים,
החיוך הזה גדל, ואז העולם,
מחייך אלינו חיוך קטן בחזרה.

"שני חתולים יושבים על ספסל אחד.
יצאה שכנה, קראה לחתול אחד כסס... כסס...
קראה לחתול שני פסס... פסס...
הניחה קערת גבינה על המדרכה, בצד, ונכנס לביתה".

Translation of the text on the sign:
The emblem of the city of Holon
Two cats on one bench
Writer: Dafna Halaf Gabay
Sculptor: Ilana Goor

[Sign with an excerpt from the book]
Two cats on one bench
Sometimes ... when you meet a cat who happens to be walking down the street,
We stop for a moment, look, and feel, how a smile was born within us,
And sometimes ... when you meet two cats,
That smile grows, and then the world,
Smiling a small smile back at us.

"Two cats are sitting on one bench.
A neighbor came out, called one cat a ksss... ksss ...
Called the cat two psss ... psss ...
She placed a bowl of cheese on the sidewalk, on the side, and entered her house. "

Sculpture: Ilana Goor
Narrated: Dafna Halaf Gabay
