(1006) Cat on a mildly cold roof


In Greek, there is this word "keramidogatos" which means "a cat on the tiles"; the word was in fashion until the 1960s, when homes actually had roof tiles and srtay cats used to walk roam them in the night. Fortunately, in Japan there are still plenty of houses with roofs of this kind.
