What do the stage directions indicate about how the performers should interact with Peter's cat? What do these directions reveal about Peter?

The only stage directions I see pertaining to the cat in Act I, Scene II, are as follows:

As PETER starts away again, ANNE tiptoes over to him and pours some of the milk from her glass into the saucer for the cat. PETER squats on the floor, putting the milk before the cat. MR. FRANK gives ANNE his fountain pen and then goes into the room at the right. For a second ANNE watches the cat; then she goes over to the center table and opens her diary.
