Feline plague doctor



  • Believes cats carries diseases
  • Wears a porcelain mask and priest robes
  • Wears red leather gloves
  • Wields a long staff with an iron, hollow head on one end, that contains catnip and belladonna. Touching cats with the staff is believed to neutralize the disease for half a day
  • Killing a cat is forbidden, as it will release the disease - it is better for it to be contained within the cat and neutralized
  • Prays twice a day by repeatedly saying gatto morbus conrigo, and purring
  • Never removes its mask, which is why most people suspect they're only part human

    1. Absolutely, just keep purring when those pesky city guards passes by.
