Description: SCP-199 (Referred to as "Righty", as named by Ms. Ashton and various Class D personnel) is a large black cat found in May 18██ by police officials in London, England, after investigating an arson/murder case. The animal appears to be in poor condition, missing its right eye and bearing scars around its neck, along with various poorly-healed skeletal fractures. However, "Righty" is very affectionate, and will follow its current owner everywhere, unless physically restrained.

A fire has broken out in Wing A-7, near the Class D housing areas. Fires have been subdued, but the cause is completely unknown. Technicians have discovered no electrical malfunction, poor wiring, or any reasonable cause for an ignition. However, of interest is the strangely shaped soot patterns caused by the flame, as the outline of a cat is clearly visible. We are looking into a possible Euclid class containment failure.

Interviewing Class D personnel proved fruitless, until we began questioning about the soot patterns left by the blaze. Some of the staff looked unhappy, and we finally discovered the nature and origin of the fire.
Personnel D1092, assigned to clean the general staff area, claimed that he "didn't like that damn cat hangin' around in Emma's room," and hinted that he may have abused it. Further questioning revealed a deep-seated antipathy towards felines in general, and we are studying further into this. He also mentioned that his sleeping area was also directly beneath the soot patterns.

Dr. Svenik: Hello, Robert, can you hear me? D1092: Fuck you, Doc. Dr. Svenik: Robert, I need to ask you a few questions, can you answer them for me? D1092: [silence] Dr. Svenik: Robert, how do you feel? D1092: [unintelligible]...cat. Dr. Svenik: Robert, please speak closer to the mic. D1092: I can't fucking stop seeing that cat. Dr. Svenik: Please elaborate. D1092: All I can see is that cat. It wants to spite me. I want to kill it. It's evil, doc, you don't know though 'cause its got its eyes in you, you don't know. I need to kill her, she loves it too much. Dr. Svenik: Who is "she" Robert? D1092: Emma. She's the cat's slave. Fuck Righty, he's a demon, I swear. Dr. Svenik: Robert, I'm going to let you get some sleep. We'll talk tomorrow, alright?
D1092 was shortly thereafter diagnosed with psychosis, schizophrenia, post-traumatic stress syndrome, and various other mental illnesses. D1092 self-terminated in July of 2008, when Dr. Svenik attempted to expose him to SCP-199.
