For 1 minute, the catkin king can utter a special command or warning whenever a non-hostile creature that she can see within 30 feet of her makes an attack roll or a saving throw.

Catkin are plump and comfortable-looking felines with prehensile paws. They come in a dizzying variety of shapes and colors.

Catkin can stand upright on their hindlegs and walk about and wear clothing as it suits them.

Catkin dwell in Ulthar, but they are also found in Catty Corners. Catty Corners consists of a perfect network of fences that divide city into a great many little enclosures. In each yard is a catnip bed, a pussy willow tree, and a lovely fountain of cream. There are many ponds well stocked with fish.

Tome catkin have long, silky hair, and some short, velvety hair; some have long, bushy tails, some short tails and some no tails at all. They are white and black, blue and gray, yellow and red, speckled and tortoise-shell in color. Some have pretty ribbons around their necks and some of the older ones wear spectacles; but all are as neat as wax, and well cared for.

Their king is a great Maltese pussycat with its ears pointing into the air and its big yellow eyes gazing steadily. He is bigger than most catkin, towering over the others.
