Two cats on one bench

[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. "
