In Brightest Day ...

Like a heroin addict needing increasingly massive hits to experience that same initial burst of euphoric dopamine, or a serial killer who progresses from pulling the wings off of flies to dismembering children in his basement, Cat's homicidal activities seem to have expanded.

No longer content to wait for the calm stillness and concealing solitude of night, Cat has taken to ending lives in the light of mid-day. It's a bold step, a brazen flaunting of his disregard for the lives of those small, furry things too stupid to avoid his slashing claws and rending teeth, but in retrospect it seems inevitable.

There were simply never enough hours in the night to satiate Cat's bloodlust.
