Here's one tabby who knows evil when she sees it! Just look at her reaction as she comes face to face with the possessed lamp bought from the Amityville yardsale and sent as a gift to her unsuspecting humans. She's so terrified that she accidentally scratches Zoe Trilling in her struggle to escape.
Later, the evil truly escapes by possessing poor Pepper. Maybe it went on to torment Denzel Washington in "Fallen".
