In Caller 107, Natalie's friend Leah has a cat Milo (named after the cat of a friend) who has a bad reaction to some paranormal stuff and freaks out. Also, in Angel Descended, one of the minor characters shares his run down apartment with 6 cats. Now you've got me thinking about a project where a cat is a major character. /ponders(less)

“Oh, Moon, upon me shine-
Give back his life, instead take mine.
Send back his heart, return his breath.
Please release him from his death.
Give back his eyes, bring back his voice.
I willingly have made this choice.
Hand back his plans, restore his mind,
I willingly grant you mine.
Oh, Moon, Oh, Stars, upon me glow-
Tell the river to let go.”
