It's spreading. I've seen it. On trees, on vegetation. On animals. There was this raccoon the other day, it had glowing eyes, worms protruding from its ears. Black ooze leaking through the fur. It left wet paw prints on the ground, and right away the grass and ground were infected. Strangest thing of all, it was like I could see straight through it, and... and I could see stars. Dying stars.
