Question: Last week you answered a cat question, so here's another: What was the name of Willow and Tara's cat on Buffy the Vampire Slayer? I remember it had a real funny name. — Bill, Tucson, Ariz.
Televisionary: Well, I hope you're proud of yourself, Bill. What you probably thought of as a simple question led to the involvement of several people here at Televisionary central and eventually led to us pestering the main Buffy man himself, Joss Whedon.
The first bit of info. is easy: Willow and Tara's cat was named Miss Kitty Fantastico. But that got me thinking: What the heck ever happened to that cat? There was that throwaway line from Dawn (Michelle Trachtenberg) in the "End of Days" episode. Remember? She told Xander she no longer left crossbows lying about, "not since that time with Miss Kitty Fantastico."
But we wanted to make sure, so we bothered Mr. Whedon, who confirmed it: The poor little puss was indeed skewered with a crossbow bolt. Hope you weren't too attached to her. Sorry you asked now?
