In the opening scene of THE LONG GOODBYE Elliott Gould stops at a supermarket on his way home and unsuccessfully tries to buy his cat’s preferred food. Back home he then attempts to outwit his cat and therefore fills the wrong food in an old tin of the right food, but, alas, the cat realizes and refuses it. So Gould is forced to head out again… And without her cat, Audrey Hepburn would probably still be sleeping in BREAKFAST AT TIFFANY'S.  

The event of the series SCHWARZER MONTAG is titled «Die Katzen» («The Cats»). On Monday, June 13, 2016, from 6 p.m. Birgit Schmid will be presenting her new book about cats and Jann Jenatsch his favourite cat pictures.

They are named Mitsou, Choupette, Jellylorum, Nigger Man and Mouche and they have been in bed with Marylin Monroe, Karl Lagerfeld, T.S. Elliott, H.P. Lovecraft and Victor Hugo: the cat’s names say everything about their famous owners. Now the «Schwarzer Montag» is on the track of household names and their feline companions with «The Cats» - the creatures who succeed to subdue even the most famous of people. Or their names are Fritz and Rosie and Birgit Schmid asks herself if her cats love her in her new book: Lieben mich meine Katzen?


In addition to Birgit Schmid’s book, the newspaper «Die Katzen» will also appear for the event «Schwarzer Montag» and can be picked up at the Westflügel or ordered here - free of charge (from June 13, 2016).

72 fine cat pictures can be seen until the end of August at the Westflügel. Meow !
