Charles is not wealthy. Not at all. He thinks of himself as being poor as the proverbial church mouse; he also thinks of his wealthy younger brother as a fat cat. Despite their cat and mouse status, they have a good relationship and visit each other often. Lately, the Fat Cat has been renovating his unremarkable house at the behest of his wife and with the advice of an interior decorator. Charles finds it odd to have a house reveal the designer’s taste rather than the inhabitants’, but he keeps that thought to himself, just like the “Fat Cat” moniker.
