SCP-XXXX (Incarnation 6) in its enclosure.

Item #: SCP-XXXX

Object Class: Neutralized

Special Containment Procedures: As SCP-XXXX is considered Neutralized, no containment procedures are required at present moment. Should subject become active once more, previous containment procedures are to be reinstated, assuming no major change in behavior.

Previous containment procedures, preserved for archival purposes: SCP-XXXX is contained in Site-46 Biological Anomaly Containment Wing, with the internal area of its enclosure modeled after a grassy outdoors environment. Enclosure is to be supplied with a feeding station consisting of a large bottle of clean water and a conveyor belt system that delivers food sent in from a room adjacent to the containment area. Water bottle is to be regularly refilled by SCP-XXXX-Alpha and food is to be delivered three times a day within 8-hour intervals. Amount of food delivered is to be changed depending on what form SCP-XXXX currently exhibits.

SCP-XXXX's containment area is to be supplied with various installations for the means of regular exercise, appropriate for subject's current form. After SCP-XXXX has reincarnated, it is to be moved to temporary containment while its enclosure is refurnished with appropriate installations for the form it has taken. Additionally, SCP-XXXX is required to have physical contact with the current SCP-XXXX-Alpha subject for at least 4 hours a day.

D-Class personnel who have no previous records of, or show any inclination towards negative interactions, thoughts, or beliefs towards animals are to be selected for becoming SCP-XXXX-Alpha once SCP-XXXX has reincarnated.

SCP-XXXX-Alpha, for the duration of holding their designation, is to live in a room furnished with 1 bed appropriate for their size, 1 sink, 1 toilet, 1 bath tub with a shower installation, supplies for basic hygiene, and is to be given regular physical and mental checkups by on-site medical staff to ensure that subject is in good condition. Subject is to be escorted to the on-site cafeteria for food and have their meals curated by medical staff. Subject is not allowed to partake in testing on other SCPs that could pose a threat to the subject's well being. Daily time spent with SCP-XXXX can be chosen and extended beyond minimum by subject, if they so choose.

Description: SCP-XXXX was a being that took the form of members of the Felidae family of Carnivoran, extinct or extant. SCP-XXXX was capable of reincarnating after death, with its form changing from one species within the Felidae family to another with each reincarnation, which appeared to have been chosen at random. Upon reincarnation, SCP-XXXX would go through a process of imprinting where, within the first three hours of its new life, SCP-XXXX would begin seeking out another living being. When contact was been made, SCP-XXXX would then imprint on the subject (referred to as SCP-XXXX-Alpha). Subject would then become SCP-XXXX's main focus of attention and affection. While SCP-XXXX was within close proximity of SCP-XXXX-Alpha, it would maintain a constant following of the subject and exhibited largely passive behavior, having allowed itself to be interacted with by other individuals with little to no resistance, so long as they did not negatively affect it or SCP-XXXX-Alpha. If SCP-XXXX-Alpha was not within close proximity, SCP-XXXX would begin exhibiting regular behavior consistent with non-anomalous members of its current species, though it did show a great amount of resistance to any individuals coming within close proximity to it, and would rapidly become angered should they attempt to interact with it physically.

SCP-XXXX reincarnated a total of 7 times since it was brought into containment. Forms taken by SCP-XXXX include, and its cause of death, include:
Incarnation # Name of species Cause of death Notes
Incarnation 1 Domestic Cat (Felis catus) Run over by a speeding car Previous owner of SCP-XXXX purported that SCP-XXXX was born from another female cat, which was owned by a family friend and also adopted by the previous owner, indicating that this was the first appearance of SCP-XXXX.
Incarnation 2 Cheetah (Acinonyx jubatus) Self-inflicted starvation SCP-XXXX began to starve itself after it was separated from the then-current instance of SCP-XXXX-Alpha for one week.
Incarnation 3 Lion (Panthera leo) Shot to death by on-site guards after termination of D-███████, then SCP-XXXX-Alpha, for non-complacency during testing and were attacked. First noted example of SCP-XXXX attacking SCP-XXXX-Alpha's assailant.
Incarnation 4 Bobcat (Lynx rufus) Self-inflicted starvation D-███████, then SCP-XXXX-Alpha, was killed in an accident involving testing of SCP-███. Dangerous testing involving SCP-XXXX-Alpha prohibited from this point onwards.
Incarnation 5 Jaguar (Panthera onca) Natural causes None
Incarnation 6 Bengal tiger (Panthera tigris tigris) Natural causes None
Incarnation 7 Saber-toothed tiger (Smilodon) Natural causes This was the first and only recorded instance of SCP-XXXX taking the form of an extinct species.
Incarnation 8 Ocelot (Leopardus pardalis) Natural causes None
Incarnation 9 Rusty-spotted cat (Prionailurus rubiginosus) Natural causes This was the last instance of SCP-XXXX before reclassification to Neutralized. Subject also displayed considerable stress, much more severe than all other instances, when it was close to passing away. Reason for this difference is unknown.

SCP-XXXX aged at a normal rate consistent with other members of its currently-assumed species. After death, SCP-XXXX's corpse would not decompose at all until approximately 30 days afterwards. After this time period, SCP-XXXX would reincarnate into a newborn state of its newly assumed form, by process of suddenly appearing nearby where it died. Previous incarnation's corpse would then rapidly decompose, leaving no traces after approximately 1 hour. SCP-XXXX showed no signs of retaining memory from its previous incarnations.

SCP-XXXX's secondary anomalous properties manifested once it had imprinted on a subject. SCP-XXXX appeared to be connected to SCP-XXXX-Alpha through unknown means, being able to somehow know when SCP-XXXX-Alpha was harmed. When SCP-XXXX-Alpha was harmed, regardless of severity, SCP-XXXX would become emotionally distressed. If a path to SCP-XXXX-Alpha was not available, SCP-XXXX would begin clawing at the walls of its surrounding area and vocalize its state of distress. If a direct path to Alpha was available, SCP-XXXX would immediately begin running to the subject's location. SCP-XXXX showed the ability to reach speeds much higher than members of its current species, appearing to move at twice the normal speed when distance between it and SCP-XXXX-Alpha was greatest. If SCP-XXXX were to see the source of SCP-XXXX-Alpha's pain the moment it was inflicted, it would become angered and attempt to attack whatever the source was. This attack would not stop until the source was killed or destroyed.

SCP-XXXX, upon reaching an injured SCP-XXXX-Alpha, would begin licking the subject's injured areas. After approximately 5 minutes, the subject's injuries and pain would gradually dissipate, before disappearing completely. This process was capable of healing almost any physical injury, provided SCP-XXXX-Alpha was not dead.

Injuries healed by SCP-XXXX include:

  • Bruising
  • Scratching, puncture wounds, lacerations
  • Bullet wounds, with bullets ejecting from SCP-XXXX-Alpha's body before the wound began to heal
  • Broken bones, with bones rearranging themselves back to their regular positions
  • Severed limbs (SCP-XXXX would carry the severed limb to the affected region and lick both ends, causing the limb to reattach to its source)

SCP-XXXX's healing process appeared to be achieved through the secretion of an unusual saliva it produced during this process. Comparison to its saliva produced while SCP-XXXX was licking its own wounds and the wounds of others showed a large chemical inconsistency, showing that SCP-XXXX would only produce this healing saliva when tending to SCP-XXXX-Alpha.

Were SCP-XXXX to attempt to heal a dead SCP-XXXX-Alpha, the healing process would invariably fail and SCP-XXXX would enter a state of considerable emotional distress and began to prod at and attempt to rouse SCP-XXXX-Alpha's corpse. Afterwards, it would enter into a state of mourning where it would stand over the corpse while vocalizing. Once mourning was complete, SCP-XXXX would begin to starve itself, refusing to eat or drink until its inevitable death. All attempts to feed SCP-XXXX directly were met with the subject's usual anger towards attempts at physical contact.

SCP-XXXX came to the foundation's attention after reports of a woman, █████ Johnson, finding a newborn Cheetah on her doorstep in ██████, Wyoming on ██/██/19██ with no apparent source being identified. Subject displayed unusual behavior when separated from Johnson, and gained large media coverage when it was found that its saliva healed her wounds. Field agents were sent to the location and recovered SCP-XXXX, interviewing Johnson. Afterwards, a large scale media coverup procedure was enacted, with Class B amnestics being administered to residents of the town and Class A amnesitcs being administered to Johnson herself.

Addendum XXXX-01: On ██/██/20██, SCP-XXXX failed to reincarnate at the appropriate time from its previous death. After 6 hours and the decomposition of its previous corpse without reincarnation, reclassification to Neutralized and updated containment procedures put into effect.
