Report #732VTX891



To Headquarters:

We have infiltrated the subject’s room.  Subject is a child of the dominant species.  If we can get a spore into its ear, we should be able to enter the brain and take over the subject’s thoughts.  We can then use the subject to destroy this invasive species.

The subject just entered room with a small mammal called a “cat”.  We will wait until it sleeps.

The subject left but the small mammal remains.

The “cat” is approaching.

What is it doing?

Hey, get out of here! Scat!

Yuck, that is disgusting!

Headquarters, requesting reassignment to the Amazon.

    Ah, ha, ha. That’s really funny, Trent. I’d suggest covering over a child’s sandbox when they aren’t playing in it. A plant is on its own. I heard of a cat dumping a pot and playing in the dirt. That cat in your story saved the day. :D — Suzanne

              Thankfully my current dogs don’t do that, but we had one…yuck. Unfortunately, our three legged cat, Albert, sometimes shits outside of the box, right next to it, and it stinks the entire house. Drives me crazy.

                So gross. And he only just restarted doing this now. I’m thinking it is a mixture of him having a sore mouth (he’s getting de-tartared next Tuesday), old, lonely or traumatized by the move.)
                Our old cat did that, too. He was very old and I had to have him put down before the move. I don’t think he could have handled it. Plus he was shitting all over the house.

      No, cats are much smarter than most people realize. The also are not domesticated, they have a symbiotic relationship with humans, getting food and petting in return for keeping pests out, including hyper-intelligent house plants ;)
