    A cat

    -the cat pads in, and begins pulling the object out, doing it quickly. They drop it on the ground, then take a sharp stick and a strong piece of vine and start sewing the wound up with their teeth, patting cobwebs and marigold over it when they're finished. Then the cat disappears into the forest.-

    DINING ROOM

    A large mahogany stained table gilded with gold on the edges is surrounded by chairs of the similar design. A very fine chandelier hangs above the table. About 15 feet to the tables right is a bar on the wall. Above the bar, is a hole into the kitchen so food can be easily transferred.
