Catty Corner

When an art heist happens during their rooftop cocktail party, Grace, Jack, and magical cool cats, Tatania and Zeus, leap to solve it.

“Where have you been all my life?” A grey haired man asked a young flapper.
“I don’t think I was alive for half of it,” she replied, blowing smoke from a six inch rhinestone cigarette holder. She wore a matching rhinestone headband, necklace and bracelets.
Her laughter carried through the rooftop crowd.
“Enchanted,” Jack Brewster said, pretending he was entering a Speakeasy, and giving a password, when a server opened the door to his atrium leading out to the rooftop. Most speakeasies were dark and dimly lit. Filled with cozy corners for necking. Jack and Grace decided to throw a Speakeasy style party to celebrate their new home on the bay. It was Speakeasy Coronado, where you walked up to a rooftop terrace and watched the sunset.
Tatania, a white Persian cat, and her tuxedo companion, Zeus, lept onto the roof before they looked. They bounded through the crowd and took positions catty corner on the rooftop, blinking at the humans. Zeus spotted a waiter with tuna canapes and rolled over adorably for him. The waiter threw a tuna canape off the tray and Zeus beat a seagull to it by a millisecond.
