“There’s three of them now.”
DJ didn’t walk up to Zoe, she danced, 3 too-big cats twisting in and out between her legs, rubbing against her and batting at each other.
The black one glittered; the grey one glowed; the calico gave off an air of unrestrained menace.
“They have their own runes,” she added. Zoe was working on a potions lab; Dj pulled out a tin of paint and set it down for the cats.
She drew her own three runes — Raido, Laguz, Teiwaz; Zoe picked out the scents of~
~grass & peat in the paint. The cats each dipped a paw in the paint and, left, right, & top, marked the line with their own distinct paw-print.
“And their own chants.”
The four-part harmony with DJ’s spell was not, exactly, musical. Nor was it pleasant.
What it was, however, was powerful. The air cleared; Zoe felt more awake and aware immediately.
“But, ah.” DJ shifted foot to foot. “I think they want our help clearing out this place they hunt.”

@aldersprig Even more magical kitties! Ooh, this was really cool! I love the idea of a cat-harmony incantation. :D
@vicorva eee I'm glad you liked it!!
@vicorva In my head, the grey one is my Oli-cat but made more magical; the black one is both Mrt and her father-tomcat somehow, and the calico is the kitty I had as a child-tween-teenager, Puddin.
(Puddin came with that name from my dad's older sister and had been mistreated as a kitten; she hated people. All people. Except my mom. Also all other cats. She lived to a ripe old age and passed when I was in my 20s.)
@aldersprig This is some lovely context for these kitties. :)
