give up

You say ‘Sorry about that’ to the man behind the counter.
You walk slowly back to the flat.
On the way you pass a cat.
The cat is half sticking out from under a car.
You bend down to stroke it but it moves further under the car.
It watches you as you go back into your flat.
You stand in the hall and feel a bit confused.

do you:

go and look at the cat again

go and stand in the kitchen
sit in the living room
