Crumble was a weird cat. Usually he silently lay there and pretended to be reading books (even though cats cannot read of course), ate some carrots (is that even healthy for a cat?!) or sat in front of a collection of manga figures (Stella had a weakness for those) and looked at them in a somewhat superior way, majestically.
Sometimes he acted like a normal cat though and played with toy mice.
Needless to say, Stella had not been able to find someone who had seen this cat before, was looking for him or knew about someone else looking for him.
She was a bit worried at first when she had to leave him home alone during her time at work. It was surprising that she always found Crumble deep in thought over a book when she came home again. There were always some carrots missing each day (she had to buy way more than before), but he also ate the cat food.
What a strange cat…
