    Those were the stories of my childhood. I did not speak English then and read them translated into Russian. The story that accompanied me the whole of my life is The Slum Cat. It left a lasting impression with me then - i cried over the Cat when she was unhappy and told everybody about the cat"s transformations and adventures when she became a famous breed. The time went by and once owing tho the Slum Cat I happened to get acquainted with a young man . We were on a Motor coach taking us from one Those were the stories of my childhood.

It left a lasting impression with me then - i cried over the Cat when she was unhappy and told everybody about the cat"s transformations and adventures when she became a famous breed. The time went by and once owing tho the Slum Cat I happened to get acquainted with a young man . We were on a Motor coach taking us from one place to another. We were both students - I studied the English lg at the Pedagogical Dept. and he studied French at the Interpreters Dept. At that very time he was reading The Slum Cat in French, and I was doing the same in English. We had a good topic for conversation. In a few years time we got married. Now I am 72 and live in Ukraine. My husband passed away of an insult 14 years ago. Once on a cold rainy day I saved a dying little kitten perhaps a month old. As it appeared the little one couldn't even drink milk and I had to feed her on some fresh cream and egg yolks with the help of syringe. Marianna (it's her name) a once a stray kitten, has turned into a beautiful and well groomed lady cat that warms my heart every minute. When asked what breed she is I say: " a valuable breed rarely known in these places, which is "Analostanka Queen" ( as it was interpreted into Russian) Not many people remember the story " The Slum Cat" and believe it is true. I say it just for fun certainly and easily reveal the secret when necessary. Usually people don't mind.

    I don't know. I mean, some of these were really interesting. And then I was traumatized by the story of the homing pigeon. Spoiler: only half of the animals even survive to the end of their story. About. I didn't keep specific track, but a lot of them died. Sometimes gruesomely. I don't know.

In "The Legend of the White Reindeer", I didn't quite understand parts of it, but I might have missed bits and pieces and that's why.
