Breakfast at Tiffany's

In Truman Capote's Breakfast at Tiffany's which was made into a wonderful film (1961) with Audrey Hepburn (as Holly Golightly), our famous feline actor Orangey plays 'Cat'.

Orangey waking up Holly/Audrey

'Cat' was a symbolic representation of Holly. In the taxi, 'Fred' Paul Varjak accused Holly of not really knowing what she wanted. This was when she had let the cat go. When she finally worked out what she herself was about, she decided to go and find 'Cat'. In other words, in finding 'Cat' she found herself.

There was another whopper of a storm today. It made me think of Orangey being out in the rain before Holly rescued him.
