It takes a moment for Sid to recognize the voice of the caller - it’s Marvelous, who he used to see around the coffee shop on the way to work sometimes. Sid hasn’t seen him there in a month or so, though, so it’s a bit of a surprise to hear from him out of the blue like this.
Marvelous isn’t sounding like his usual smooth self, either. He’s always been very suave (he’d even propositioned Sid once a while back, which had been flattering but Sid had declined and Marvelous has respectfully not brought the topic up since), so hearing him sounding flustered and almost panicked is a bit alarming to say the least.
And then he mentions that there’s a catperson in need of help.
“Okay, I should be able to help,” says Sid, reaching for a pen and paper in case he needs to take notes. He thinks he sees Joe’s ears pricking up at the sign of trouble. “Can you tell me what’s going on?” As it is, he has no idea what the situation is - it could be anything from a stray in need of shelter for the night to a sick pet, though he didn’t think Marvelous was keeping any pets. He’ll just wait for Marvelous to explain.
