    I’ll buy it only if it features P-Cat, the Penitent Puss!

    I’m only buying this if it includes an appearance by P-Cat, the Penitent Puss.

    Wait, he can fly now?

    He needs piercings to tear them, gaining extra emo energy.

    P-Cat presence is mandatory, of course.

    If he can fly, he’ll lose out on great lines like “Quickly Venom — to the Emo-mobile”!

    I don’t think p-cat should be showing up in this after all I think It’s animal abuse to put a cat in that
