[News: Around Main]
[It's late as late can be, and Repose should be in bed and dreaming of dancing sugarplums, but fuck that jazz. From one of the apartments off Main, music can be heard. It's playing loudly and with no care for the neighbors, and the figure on the balcony is dressed in black and taffeta and netting. One female neighbor complains that the dancer was even wearing cat ears, as if it's the greatest deviance Repose has ever been forced to bear witness to, but her husband only noticed the fishnets. The police that come out to take the noise complaint end up in the middle of a little domestic squabble, during which the dancer disappears into the night. The music is still playing in the apartment, but upon entering the officers find that the family's gone for summer.
Despite multiple other sightings that night, the cops never do catch the cat in fishnets, and they finally give up when the sky starts to lighten. By morning, they have a stack of reports of dancing on roofs and fire escapes, singing too, but someone's taking a cat nap and is nowhere to be found.]
