Somewhere, there is a cat who lives in a two-story house: he eats his meals downstairs and sleeps upstairs. An old man who brings him fresh fish and cream every day also sleeps in the same wide bed. Whenever the cat has a full belly, he purrs, and this makes the old man happy. There is also a cellar where the old man stores potatoes, carrots, and rutabagas. However, neither the cat nor the old man know that a little mouse family lives down there, too.
