Priceless Cat

I was walking through the city the other day, when I saw this cat lapping up milk from an interesting looking saucer in the doorway of a run-down terraced house.  Being a keen antiques collector, I took a closer look and indeed: it was priceless Ming Dynasty porcelain piece.

I could scarcely contain my excitement as I knocked on the door. An old guy opened it.

"Sorry to bother you," I said, "but I couldn't help notice your fine cat, and wondered if I could buy him."

"He's not really for sale," replied the old man.

"Look," I said. "I'm desperate for a rat catcher.  I'll pay you £100 for him."

"100 quid?? Blow me down!" exclaimed the old man, and agreed to the sale.

"Oh, and by the way," I continued nonchalantly as I handed him the money. "Any chance you could throw in the saucer for a tenner?"

"No way!" he laughed.  "This is my lucky saucer.  I've sold 10 cats this week already."
