[Narrator – Nadia is expecting Maryann to arrive soon. Since it is an unusually balmy autumn day, she has decided to serve tea in the screened-in room, which is at the side of the house off the main room. During the summer, it’s too hot to sit out there for any length of time, however, Remington, her cat, loves this enclosure and uses it all year round. There is a cat door at the bottom of the larger ornate door and he passes through it several times a day. As a matter of fact, he often walks through the front room while a reading is taking place on his way to his personal sanctuary. 


Seeing a black cat pass through the room sometimes disconcerts the person having a reading, but it’s just by chance that Remington happens to be black. It’s all Zizi’s doing.]
