"It didn't say anything in the ad about the puppies being hellhound puppies."
"Oh, hey." Dan pointed to a handmade sign. "Someone's got kittens. Maybe a cat would be better than a puppy, especially with the apartment."

"They're adorable," said Shannon. "What breed are they?"
There was a soft popping sound. One of the kittens evaporated in a puff of smoke.
"Cheshire," said the little girl.
