Secret to Keeping
These Dark Arts secrets were previously not known outside of family and Creepy Hollows collectors. They are secrets discovered by Ash and he has generously agreed to share them with all collectors because having the right secret and being able to properly handle DA spirits is more important.
For a Bakeneko there are a couple of secrets to Keeping them... the first being placing their vessel near running, cold water to subdue them, and the second being wrapping their vessel in cord and placing them in a confined area to subdue their high energy.
Only use these techniques if you feel the Bakeneko is becoming too strong for your liking- some collectors like their spirits to be "on the go" all the time so it is your judgment call.
