    Cats
    Explanation
    Karma is a belief in the concept of cause and effect, where one's actions and intentions will eventually bring about consequences, either positive or negative. Cats, on the other hand, are often associated with being unpredictable and having a mischievous nature. Therefore, the phrase "can come around and bite you in the end" suggests that both karma and cats have the potential to bring unexpected consequences or negative outcomes if one is not careful.
