AFTERWARD: Macavity’s sister Selerity (Selerity, who drove him to his own suicide by inflicting madness upon him. The same madness that had caused him to kill his mate, Etcetera, and to send Starrla and Ratter off on an impossible task to Jack, without a hope in the world.) took over The Fortress, and Macavity’s band of strays; no one dared question her after what she had done to Macavity.
Macavay left Jack’s Lair to join Selerity at The Fortress. Starrla, having no idea how to cope with the grief of her lover, or what to do because he was no longer there to manipulate her, followed Macavay, and Aerotiger came with her.
Ratter, finally realizing that Starrla did not care for him at all the way he thought she did, could not bring himself to face her again. He chose to stay with the other hench cats and guards at Jack’s Lair, vowing never to lose track of his sister, Brittnila again.
Macavity’s death changed all Jellicle and Stray life forever. It marked the end of an Era. There was so much mystery surrounding his suicide, mystery that would never be investigated, as long as Selerity had power over The Fortress. For some cats, like Jack, it was the ultimate triumph, for others, like Starrla, it was unbearable pain. For the first time in years of Jellicle and Stray history, Macavity wasn’t there.
