While he is in her house he also eats all her European white truffles. When Angela returns, Dwight tells Angela that her cat has died. He promises to buy her a new cat. Angela is distraught over the death of her beloved cat and begins to drink heavily. One day while heavily intoxicated, Angela sees Jim with her cat. In a fit of rage she smashes her umbrella across Jim’s face, breaking his nose and takes Garbage Pail.
