I'll have to go with the Marchesa here. Although she complains about the cats, there is an implicit connection with them. Without the old lady, there would be no cat city. Developers covet her land and she refuses to sell. Although the cats are not a reason she gives for not selling, one can surmise that this secret feline world has much to do with it.
