Scene 143, cut 21, according to a notation on the cel. Feeling fluffy and lighter than air after her bath, Chibi-Neko has a surreal dream of the cats’ heaven, in which she encounters Raphael again. The mysterious tom assures her that he will never leave her again. Then he begins to divide himself into more and more clones, some propagating sideways, still more leaping down from above. This leads into a joyful round dance with Chibi-Neko included. Sequence number: A19

Sensei did a little joyful dance when he unpacked this cel. Unlike many from this period, this one had been conserved very carefully and showed no sign of damage or deterioration, even though it is nearly 35 years of age. The lines were traced in various colors of ink -- by hand! -- so they show no trace of fading. I’ve added in the thumbnails two more detailed scans, about twice actual size: one of the impressive portrait of Raphael in the center, the other of his clone leaping to the ground to his left.
