Remember that Amesworth told Wally that the anthros tend to have lifespans appropriate to the animals they resemble. That would be a good reason to want to return to being human. Not so much of a problem for Alan, but not many cats live for 20 years. Although who knows, cardoodle clones may live longer.

Allie is dead, Holly is missing. Is that pig Portia’s brother?
