>The sage Hekabe, called Hekabe the Unbelievable, claimed that every hundred years or so cats gather in this disused park, and shed their skins to reveal their true forms.

Hekabe was widely considered mad. Her health deteriorated, and at last she was found dead of a heart attack in an alley. Foul play was ruled out, since no one ever went into the alley other than stray cats.
