saw on the show that kittens were used instead of money in card games
(kitten poker) played by demons (Life Serial), and later that Spike
got in serious debt and had to deal with a shark demon who demanded
him immediate payment (Tabula Rasa):
Take it easy, you’ll get your kittens.
DEMON: Oh, I trust you, Mister Spike.
Oh god, what is it with you guys? Why kittens? Why can’t you just use
money like everybody else?
DEMON: She’s funny. I like funny in a girl.
I just need a little more time.
DEMON: Time, time, time! Is what turns kittens into cats!
Season 10 (issue #11), Spike was able to redeem himself of this awful
habit of gambling for kittens – he rescued 6 of them that were
about to be gambled by some nasty demons at the Suppurating Sore Social Club:
He took them home, saying to Xander that he would find them
homes the next day…
But the kittens - now cats - are still in the apartment (up
to issue #28)…
takes care of them, too: and they were Xander’s companion when he was a little depressed and refusing to leave his bedroom:
And incorporeal Anya has been able to be seen by them since they arrived in the apartment:
Gage loves cats; he was asked if the cats would survive Season 10, and
he said that “no cat will ever die in anything” he writes - so no cats will be harmed during the final battle against D’Hoffryn.
