Since the Toclafane came, cats stay hidden. The Toclafane torture them, starving humans eat them.
Martha dreams. Millions of humans, thinking together to end the Master and the Toclafane. Then the Siamese cat appears.
It watches the Master's downfall, then sneers and says "I've wasted lifetimes trying to get a thousand cats to dream together. You think you can persuade millions?"
The cat ponders, and says "Then I will dream with them."
If Martha succeeds it's proof that dreams can change the world. Then a thousand cats, dreaming together, will return the humans to their rightful place... as prey.
Comments please before I post to archives. I may be posting another of these later today if I can come up with a good punch line.
