A routine Japanese high school student brings home a supernaturally abandoned cat found in a cardboard box.

Without any Elder Sign on the cat door, soon his house becomes the gathering place of the most formidable litter of Mythos, as hair-raising and cat-like versions of Hastur, Yog-Sothoth, Nyarlathotep, and other lovable Lovecraftian terrors fill his thoughts, whisper unspeakable secrets, and generally become a nuisance!

(“In his house in R’lyeh, the deceased Cthulhu Cat is in a dreamy wait, meow!”)
