The beginning of High Summer in the foothills of the Shenandoah in Virginia is, as always, signaled by the arrival of the giant floating spherical cats. These creatures, which feed on mist, air, and emanations from fields and vineyards, seem threatening, but are actually harmless. They have been known to settle in meadows to bask in the sun. Residents often try to shoot at them, but nothing has ever harmed them, which suggests that these may be multi-dimensional in nature. After the autumn grape harvest, the cats float away and disappear, escaping to some unknown place where it is warm, to return the following June.
