The Contessa's House is the home of Varjak and his family.
The Contessa's House is the place where the family of Varjak has been living in for several generations. It is owned by the old lady Contessa, who lately has been only showing up rarely and only to feed her cats. The family of Mesopotamian Blues describes the house as the only place they would need in life to be happy and feel protected. The House has a cat door, which leads to a small garden, that is surrounded by a great wall, almost unable to climb. As it has always seen impossible to climb the wall, Varjak is the only cat of the current living family mebers who has ever left the house.
