Police Officer # 9 (illustrated by Te’Shawn Dwyer)

In Endless Nights, we get a glimpse at Despair in her 15 Portraits story.

There is a man who was hurt in an accident and was forced to move into a trailer at the edge of town.

A stray cat wanted to the trailer and the man put down a saucer of milk for the cat.

Over time sixty or seventy cats are living with him in the trailer. They are his family.

One day the man leaves to take a job as a farm hand and is unable to return to feed the cats.

This police officer comes to the farm and speaks to the man, telling him that maybe only five of the cats were somehow still alive, while sixty, maybe more were found partially eaten inside the trailer.

This is one of the saddest and most horrific stories in Endless Nights.

This police officer appears in Endless Nights on page 85, which is the 6th page of the Despair Story.
