Summary:
Mutant supremacist Erik gets transfigured into a kitten, human Charles takes him in, and Erik really can't help falling in love.

Review:
Transformed into a cat by an unimpressed potential recruit to the Brotherhood, Erik ends up rescued from the streets by Charles. Forced to wait out his transformation, Erik can't help but have his anti-human prejudices challenged by the kind and lonely professor. When Erik changes back (and after some understandable confusion on Charles' part), Erik procrastinates about leaving until he learns about Charles' long-lost mutant sister.

I really enjoyed how, while this story stays humorous throughout and starts with the cracky premise of Erik being turned into a cat, that is also about Erik growing to see people as individuals rather than just humans or mutants (because of his love for Charles) and family reunions and happy endings.
