Yes, when marcovaldo fishes from the restaurant tank, a cat takes it and runs. Marcovaldo follows the string and finds his fish hung in a tree in the old lady's garden of cats.

"Marcovaldo understood that he finally reached the heart of the kingdom of cats, their secret island. "

The garden was not just for cats but other animals,

"And the birds, too, added another, in these few trees, and content themselves with living in hundreds and hundreds..."
