Marvel fans have been waiting for Captain Marvel, the latest installment in the series, for months. But the breakout star has been Carol Danvers’ furry friend, Goose. Notice we didn’t say “cat,” but we’ll leave out any spoilers here.

I’ve been allergy tested and the doctor was like, ‘oh, that’s the worst I’ve ever seen for cats. It’s pretty bad,'” Larson told ABC. So whenever you see Captain Marvel holding Goose, it’s most likely CGI or a puppet, according to Entertainment Weekly.
