Cat Watching Narrowly

The cat in a sunny spot next to the stall threw a snappy glance at me

I turned into a side street, feeling that it wasn't very interesting to walk down the big shopping street. The side street was a dimly lit alley. Although there were big shops in a shopping street called Pasar Baru in Jakarta, there were small stalls lined up as I had imagined. And people were lounging around, as I expected. It was more fun to walk through this messy atmosphere than to walk down a nicely maintained street, as I felt like I was buried among the locals.

Although there were a number of stalls lined up in the dim alleyway, it was hard to tell if they were open or closed. Men were behind the stalls, but they were all staring at their phones and it was hard to tell whether they were working or resting.

I didn't come here to buy anything in particular, so I walked further and further into the back of the alleyway. Then I noticed a cat sitting next to the stall. The cat was firmly propped up on the ground with its paws and was staring at me with a cooing gaze. I was the only one who felt buried among the locals, and from the cat's point of view, it was obvious that I was an outsider.
