An obligatory statue of the goddess Bast overlooks Queen Tera's embalming. We learn later that this artifact contains a third of Tera's soul.
In modern day England, a painting of a cat is above the bed of Margaret Fuchs (Valerie Leon). Can it be because Margaret looks exactly like Tera?
The day before her birthday, Margaret carries her boyfriend's Siamese cat to his bed while saying, "You don't feed him enough, he should be gorged and fat and purring."
After Margaret/Tera collects the final piece of her soul, fortune teller Helen Dickerson (Rosalie Crutchley) gets clawed to death by an invisible feline force which emanates from the statue.
