Herman J. DeRothingwhile

"One of my most brilliant of inventions! They all doubt me and claim that my work is useless to the community. Well! They will think different once my army of cats has swarmed their daily lives! It will be a CAT-astrophe of which the likes they have never seen!!"
—A Side note from DeRothingwhile in his book title, Underused, Under-known, and Under the Pantry Uncommon Potions.

Cat-O-Tonic is a potion that allows the drinker to understand cat speak, as well as seemingly communicate to cats. Though it's possible that cat's could already understand the speech of humans. It is a mild to difficult potion and can prove to be a challenge to even adult witches and wizards. Cat-O-Tonic is largely considered to be a nonsense potion and many wizards and witches consider it to not work, due to the inventor's reputation for making brews that often didn't do anything. However, this is certainly not the case with Cat-O-Tonic, as the potion does indeed work. The potion has two parts to it's brewing and must brew for 35 minutes in between parts.
