So yeh. True story. It wasn't scary, exactly, just a weird sort of unnerving that I thought might be good to write. Feel free to mock me for being frightened by a cat.

There's a part of my brain that appreciates this as a story and understands what you are trying to say
But there's another part of my brain that just wants to go scoop up your demoncat and love on it.
This has nothing to do with anything, but every time I read this, I see "democrat" instead of "demoncat".
I don't know why the idea of a demonic cat seems adorable to some people. This terrifies me.
Add orange spots and this is my cat already. She's got a stiff gait and makes this kind of noise, especially to strangers in her domain.
I really do understand why this story is terrifying, it's a good story and it is well told. But beyond the embellishment on the frightening parts of it I'm seeing a cat that's adopted some people and that makes me go "awwwww."
There's another scary angle for the rest of you. The demon cats are real, they aren't what they seem, and some of us like it. :P
This is what happens when someone force feeds a cat a speaker. You know it can't do sound, you know it'll up the gain too much, but nooooo, you still give the cat the speaker, and next thing you know, it's feeding back and scaring old people and their families. Great job.
I felt a chill through most of that, although I have to say it was the conclusion there that really got me. Yoric almost being eaten by Fluffy Satan is unnerving and scary in its own right, but the thought about everyone filtering out the horrors of the world stretches that out to a way that it can be anywhere. That homeless man on the corner, the one in the jacket? Come to think of it, you can't really think and describe to well what that jacket is like. Hell, you're not sure he even looks homeless, you just assume that. He's always there. That must be what he is….
And that concept, to me, is terrifying.
