Azusa is a bakeneko, which is a type of supernatural cat. Cats usually become a bakeneko if they live for too long, when their tail will split into two. To prevent this, owners sometimes cut off their pet's tail after they are born. Some say that these cats will be able to speak the human language, walk on its hind legs, and eat oil lamps.
