Description: SCP-3270 is a painting, depicting a cat resting on a pillow.

(See Document-3270-1) This effect does not apply to copies of SCP-3270, either through printing or recreation. Viewers of SCP-3270 are to be classified as instances of SCP-3270-1.


Initial Viewing: Viewers will express admiration for SCP-3270. Viewers who viewed a copy of SCP-3270 and expressed apathy or disapproval before viewing SCP-3270 will still express admiration for SCP-3270.

1 Hour After Initial Viewing: Viewers will exhibit increased enthusiasm, curiosity, and generally have a more positive outlook on life.

1 Day After Initial Viewing: Viewers will show increased interest in felines, through looking at pictures/videos of common house cats, purchasing clothing, furniture, or other objects depicting cats, or adopting pet cats.

1 Week After Initial Viewing: Viewers will begin recommending others begin adopting cats as pets, as well as recommend viewing SCP-3270.

3 Weeks After Initial Viewing: Viewers will begin exhibiting cat-like behaviour, such as licking themselves as a substitute to more formal means of bathing, preferring to eat food on the floor, and walking using both their arms and legs.

2 Months After Initial Viewing: Viewers will show increased body hair growth.

4 Months After Initial Viewing: Viewers’ skeletal system will begin to shrink, with their muscles and skin doing the same.

5 Months After Initial Viewing: Other miscellaneous changes to the viewers’ body will occur, such as ears changing shape and location, eyes restructuring to resemble those of house cats, and loss of thumbs and fingers, in place of phalanges typical of house cats.

6 Months After Initial Viewing: Instances of SCP-3270-1 are physically identical to a non-anomalous house cat, though are able to still speak, despite not having the needed organs to do so. The psychological effects of SCP-3270 listed above have dissipated at this point. Instances of SCP-3270-1 will have the lifespan of an average human, though are able to be terminated by normal means.
