It still hasn’t learned to purr properly, but this is progress; it’s been a week since it was naughty enough to try speaking. I couldn’t believe my eyes when I realized that my kitten could speak. It was frighteningly unnatural. I tried not to think about it too much and continued to pet it behind the ears. But every time I did, I heard a low growl. It started getting louder and more sinister each time until one day, its eyes turned pitch black, and it lunged at me with sharp, razor-like claws. I knew then that my kitten was possessed.
