cats don't talk

Just had a character tell some younger girls the tale of the "Colony of Cats."

Being dove maidens, I think one of them's going to ask whether it's true and if there are such cats.  (There being no cats at all in their regions.  For some reason.)

I suspect I shall have them say no, and be right about it.

And this in a tale where another character is going to tell my storyteller the story of Vasilissa the Wise as history and to explain her concern about elements of the storyteller's backstory -- and she's going to be right too.  Ah, the mixing and matching of monsters.
