Every person wants to be special. Everyone is already special, I just forgot about it.
This story is about a small white kitten who was born into a family of large black cats.
Black cats have never been bad guys. It's just that they are used to thinking about them, and it very often served to their advantage. Red, striped and even tricolor cats always avoided them. So they lived exactly until the day when a small white lump appeared in their family. To say that the family was surprised is to say nothing. The mother cat is crying, the father cat is huddled in a corner and hisses, and on the roof of a neighboring house, debates are already in full swing at an urgent council of elders. Assumptions are different: from the sabotage of a clan of white cats, with which a friendly black family has been fighting for more than one century, to the birth of a chosen cat, who will have to unite the warring parties. Few support the latest version. After all, each of the elders has his own life story and more than one scar inflicted by the sharp claw of the enemy. And also do not want to lose special authority in the cat world at all. By the decision of the majority, the kitten had a long way of transformation, but for now no one should see him. After all, if other communities learned about the birth of a white kitten, then black cats would become vulnerable and surrender their positions, which in no case should happen.
So Ugolok's path began.
Every morning, a black mother cat carefully wiped it off with soot (which was expensive for the family). Even the treacherously delicate pink nose had to be soiled, so that Ugolyok always sneezed, and other kittens teased him and called him Chihuahua (which was the most offensive for a cat's nature).
In the evenings, the baby told his mother that the other kittens did not want to be friends with him. Mother-cat only gently stroked his fur, and father-cat always frowned, purred something under his breath and went to his bed right after work.
So the kitten grew month after month, year after year. He has learned to be alone, which, in general, is not so bad. He had a lot of time to study the legends of feline peoples, he even began to illustrate them, but most importantly, he could purr the March feline song louder and more sincere than his peers. So it happened that rumors spread about a special black cat Ugolka, who sings better than all cats on the planet.
Of course, he began to be invited to traditional night cat meetings to listen to his beautiful tunes. Things soon went so well that Ugolk was able to reimburse all his family's expenses for soot, as well as to buy now a better grade of it and smear more abundantly. Yes, he was still sneezing, but because of his popularity, it became his hallmark, a highlight. And now no one dared to call him offensive words.
One fine April evening, Ugolek gave one of his best performances on the roof of the city hall. And it was a very, very prestigious concert, because white, and red, and tabby cats came to visit it. All of them were very curious to hear this beautifully singing cat. The elders of the communities looked with envy at the black cats in the central box.
But then, somewhere in the distance, thunder was heard.
Since Ugolyok was very concentrated on his singing, of course he didn't hear anything. Only the black mother cat began to anticipate something was wrong. With the first raindrops, the listeners, carried away by singing, simply climbed under the shed. And Ugolyok sang and sang …
His eyes were closed, and when he felt a cold drop on his fur, he imagined every evening of his childhood, when his mother-cat carefully washed away the soot from him. He was always a little ticklish that even from the memories he began to smile.
He opened his eyes at an unexpectedly loud and crackling thunderclap. It was raining everywhere. When he looked at his coat, white spots had already begun to appear on it. Despite the thunderstorm, it became very quiet around.
What should a suddenly little black kitten do again? He looked around in confusion. His kin lowered their eyes. And the representatives of other clans, without taking their eyes off him, whispered among themselves.
Of the black cats, only his mother looked at him. She looked so that he understood: she could not help.
And he rushed wherever his eyes were looking. And he ran for a long, long time. That night was the hardest of his life. After all, everyone found out what he really is!
At the end of this story, a white kitten named Ugolek meets wonderful tricolor cats, who teach him various feline wisdom so that he can unite the warring relatives. And he succeeds. And where there are usually credits, there are shots of Ugolok singing at a friendly world feast.
