The cat squinted in irritation. The man had quite rudely invaded its alley. He had not even offered a bit of the sandwich he was gnawing on. It was a rather good-smelling sandwich too with some sort of fish spread on a hot loaf. The cat gave a disgruntled hrmph before beginning a half-hearted bath hoping the man would notice and toss him a tidbit. The man did not in fact notice the cat. He was too busy gazing across the busy market, watching a monstrous man draped in a boar skin haggle over some bangles.
