Piece of Mind

Recently we received a package from NoirCat. It is the basket that she was kept in as a baby, and it contained two special items for Maggie to remember her by. NoirCat requested that we deliver it to her as a goodbye to help give Maggie some peace of mind. The basket can be seen below.

First, she left her a letter explaining it all. The letter can be seen below, and reads:

My Dear, Dark Maggie,
            I’m sorry I left, but I had to. I needed a break and this was the only way. I could no longer take the objectification from you and the DS106 community. You all made what I am into a joke. You turned who I am into a specific thought, feeling, and genre. But, like the concept of noir, I am none of those; I am so much more. Our relationship was abused and beaten down to a point where it hurt to be with you. So, I left. It means the world to me that you went through all the trouble you did in order to find me, but I can’t come back. You’re not ready and neither am I. I thought I could just spend a few days away to figure out my true feelings, but it wasn’t enough. Therefore, I have, with the help of my new friends the Black Widow Agency, decided to take an indefinite vacation.
            Do not blame yourself as you are not the sole reason for me leaving. I will miss you my friend. But keep close the memories we have made throughout the years. Please keep in mind the feelings of the next NoirCat. I hope that she will have a better experience than I did and only be given the love and community of the Noir/DS106 family. Take care of Daphne for me!
With love,
Meowdred (NoirCat)

 

 

Noir Cat signed the letter with a paw print.

The second thing NoirCat sent for Maggie was a few pictures of herself to let Maggie know that she was happy in her new home and doing well. In these pictures, NoirCat removed her disguise. This was done under our advice/supervision so that no one would recognize her there taking these pictures and no one who saw the pictures would know her new identity of Ivanna. The three pictures we deemed acceptable to give to Maggie because they wouldn’t give too much away, are below. NoirCat took them at various sites and locations while traveling around her new home.

Unfortunately, the BWA had an addition to the basket, which included an invoice for Maggie. Although we are good friends with both her and NoirCat, our services and work time cannot be freely given out. Grandma did, however, consign to letting us waive the Results and Findings fee, which seemed very fair after we took on NoirCat as our client and had to dismiss Maggie’s case. The invoice, and last item in the basket, is below.

Evidence #05

As we followed our leads in the search for NoirCat, we came upon an interesting trail of some tiny red plastic things that one of our agents was able to identify as “soft paws.” They are similar to nail polish for cats and can be seen below on NoirCat.

We believe she left these as a trail for us to follow. Below is a picture of some of the soft paws found on the scene. Others were more scattered, leading us on a trail through a neighborhood in Fredericksburg.

We collected 10 in total, which is accurate because as we later were told, they were only on her 10 front toes. We collected the soft paws for evidence and returned to BWA headquarters to take a further look at them. While inspecting them we immediately noticed that letters were etched into at least one side of each one. We knew the spelled something and we were being sent a message. After a short period, we were able to decode the message. Below is a picture taken of all the soft paws together just before we unscrambled.

The unscrambling lead us to the message “Don’t Find Me.” Which leads us to ask, is someone trying to get us to stop looking for NoirCat? Are they framing her? How much trouble is she really in? Hopefully our search will be successful in getting these as well as other answers and returning NoirCat to Maggie and her DS106 family.

Scenes and Leads

We now feel an appropriate amount of time has passed from our investigation at the abandoned building that we can share photos of the site. Below are some different views of the building. We believe NoirCat may have spent one if not a few nights here during her first few days away from Maggie. But we have yet to figure out who was keeping her here.

After receiving an anonymous tip, we visited the store “Cat’s Closet” on Caroline Street in downtown Fredericksburg. Here we spoke to the store attendant and began to interview one of the cat’s before hearing a strange noise. We followed the noise to find NoirCat escaping out the Employees Only exit. Our pursuit was futile– we quickly lost her despite having been just on her tail. We then reconvened our interview with the cat but he would not give up anything. We will be bringing in a cat-body language interpreter to help give us clues based on his physical responses to our questions. We will share the video of this interview at a later time. However, we can now share the photo we were able to obtain of her fleeing the “Cat’s Closet.”

Meowdred can be seen just leaving through the kitty-door. Shortly after this photo was taken, we lost her.

 Stay tuned for our next update.

Evidence #03

Upon further investigation in the home of Groom and Daphne, we came across a small, suspicious black box that rested among old gaming equipment. It was cracked open and inside it was a large computer chip and a magnet. It wouldn’t have seemed suspicious without the animal fur that was visible around it. We believe this could have been used to deactivate NoirCat’s microchip. Edie photographed the box where it was found to document it as evidence. The box can be seen in the photo below, inside the red circle. After we confirm the box was used on the microchip, we will add it to the suspect board. It currently ties back to both Groom and Daphne.
