The cat appeared out of nowhere in a narrow alley between a wall and dwellings

It was a narrow alley between the wall and the houses. People doing business with food stalls must live around here. I could see mobile stalls near the wall that was not open for business. They were waiting for their turn in a deserted alley.

As I walked down the empty alley, a cat appeared out of nowhere. Sandwiched between buildings and walls, there was no choice in the direction of travel unless I was very light. Only when I come to an intersection I can voluntarily choose my path. On the other hand, a cat is free to choose its own path. Whether there is a wall or not, an intersection or not, it can choose the path it wants to take. This cat must have come from behind a high wall.

I am a little envious of the cat's three-dimensional perception of Jakarta's residential neighborhoods, while I am only able to see it in two dimensions as I wander down the street. Even if I could capture the city in three dimensions with Parkour, it is a cat's prerogative to be able to go anywhere freely, which is not allowed for me as a human. If I were a person who could climb over a wall without thinking about it, it would just be trespassing if I did. For that reason, I envy cats for being able to see their local daily life up close and personal.
