Does the ‘A Quiet Place: Day One’ cat die? Your top question answered.

A Quiet Place: Day One ushers audiences back into the horror franchise, where extraterrestrial monsters who hunt by sound chase down any human who makes a peep. For the first two installments, writer/director/actor John Krasinski centered on rural parents, desperately and determinedly protecting their defenseless children against ravenous extraterrestrial monsters. But in this prequel, new to the franchise helmer/scribe Michael Sarnoski offers a pet parent named Sam (Lupita Nyong’o) and her cuddly cat, Frodo.

As their Lord of the Rings names tease, they are tightly connected as they make their own dangerous quest through a Manhattan terrorized by “Death Angels,” who chase any sound like it’s a dinner bell. And this has some animal-lovers nervous.

“Does the cat die?” has become a common question since the first trailers revealed Sam’s feline sidekick. Sure, the first two movies put the Abbott children — including a newborn — in danger. But that doesn’t mean cat people are ready to witness a fleeing feline be gobbled up like so much little brother Beau. (He just wanted to play with a rocket!)

Deep breaths, animal lovers: Frodo the cat lives — as do the native rodents scurrying around Manhattan. It seems the Death Angels aren’t much for snacking. Or perhaps they’re targeting humans not for nourishment so much as taking down the dominant species for swift conquering? But that’s a topic for another time. For now, rest easy-ish knowing that for all those who will fall prey to A Quiet Place: Day One’s Death Angels, sweet, fluffy Frodo will keep her nine lives intact.

A Quiet Place: Day One is now playing in theaters.
