A cat's talk

Finally exams are over. So my friends and I went for a cup of tea. There we sat and talked.
The tea house had lots of cats, most of them looked stray. But there was a black one with a collar. Me and my friends were happily chatting when the cat with a collar decided to join us. The black cat ran across the ground between the tables and stood there on a bench beside of the customers, with its eyes wide open in a stare. A moment later, it was gone again. Then, we heard it. A meow. then, again, and again, and again and again. We turned around and there they were. Two black cats. One of them, a stray was just sitting quietly, but one with the collar kept going on a continuous caterwaul. Zorro, the cat with collar that my friends named afterwards jokingly, sat and stood, aproached and back away from the unknow stray black cat for about entire 10 minutes. Our unknown cat, which a friend of mine determined was a female, was a total ice block, completely ignoring Zorro's behavior. It seemed like, we unexpectedly landed in the middle of a mating process. I mean, it is Winter, it is not eactly known as a mating season, but...
After 10 minutes of continuous caterwaul that sounded more like a baby's cry, Zorro, finally gave up. It left a few steps, and then jumped over the wall. After it left, we heard a very low piercing sound. Then we realized it was the unknown cat. It was hissing. Maybe that's why our galant Zorro finally understood he was not welcome and left.
It was a nice afternoon spent in the tea house, with an unexpected out of season show that totally made my day.
Tomorrow there is more, for I'll probably be trying to catch the sunrise, again.
