concept: keyleth encounters a sad, underfed kitten while she and vax are visiting her dad. she takes him home and names him aster (after one of her favorite flowers). vax is pissed. the cat gets hair all over his cloaks. weeks later, keyleth finds him in the middle of giving aster a bellyrub. vax picks up the cat and tosses him at her, pretending he hates cats. dragon is defeated. they are happy cat owners.
