"Several. Fought so badly I wondered why they bothered," said Corridon.

"No, the cat jumped out. And -- there are no hags that can turn to cats in our lands. But still we caged it, and it did not turn back to human form over night. We let it loose to catch mice and catch it off guard -- and it stayed a cat for seven years before dying of old age -- it had not been too young when it jumped out."
