perhaps the flow has changed... you will never find the cat in that neighborhood" 1. In the context of her casual meeting with Toru these mystical words appear to be literal, but in hindsight it foreshadows Kumiko's sudden and unexpected departure soon after the flow has changed. Like the prophecy, she is never found in that area after her disappearance. However, the cat returns to Toru in the second part of the novel, almost in response to the appearance of the mark on Toru's face, suggesting another change of flow. This change of flow is suggested to be positive because at this point, Toru's life has stabilized and is a part of a new routine.
