Felix Catt is a typical resident of Siberia Avenue,
Surbiton. He looks gloomy, but in fact he is quite
happy, and he leads a quiet life in this suburb of
London. His wife Gertie looks after him carefully;
she cleans the house regularly, and feeds him daily
on well cooked meat and tinned vegetables. There is
always a supply of fresh water for his whisky, and
plenty of carpet space for putting practice, so he is
very comfortable and content with suburban life.
Felix is very fond of his old dog, Sam. They go
for walks together on Sundays. Today he is taking
Sam to the local vet, because he is afraid that he is
going blind. However, the vet is confident of curing
him by means of a small operation. He is giving Sam
an injection before operating on him, so that he will
sleep peacefully the whole time and not feel any
pain. There is even a pretty nurse standing by to
comfort Sam in case he feels unhappy and lonely in
the strange surroundings.
In general, both Felix and Sam think that they
don't have a bad life, and they have no desire to
change it for anything more adventurous.
