There is a vicious battle for the safety of this household tonight. I can hear it waging in the next room.
I don’t know exactly when the outlet covers in the house turned against us.
Heck, I didn’t even know we had any outlet covers left around here.
But The Doctor knows. Yes, Dr. Love knows! And while we strongly suspect that cat’s never really been to medical school, there is no denying that he is giving his all in the fight against the Outlet Covers Gone Rogue.
Observe the warrior in his natural habitat! No, really. He lurks under stuff a lot. Weirdo.
I seriously don’t know where he found these rebellious little thingamabobs.. For years we’ve had no outlet covers, because no little kids, and now suddenly Doc is skittering them all over the place.
Perhaps they’re mutants. Maybe this is what happens to dust bunnies that get too much radiation from the microwave. They turn into outlet covers without a cause.
But no fear! While it does sound dreadful, this business of being overrun with criminal gangs of outlet covers that come from nowhere (or maybe Mars or New Jersey or something), we can rest easy knowing Dr. Love has it all under control. He will battle each and every outlet cover until it has been subdued…
…and then he will drown them.
I would like to say there’s some sort of lesson in all this. It is possible that it’s a sign and a wonder:
A sign that cat ain’t right in the head, and a wonder that we keep happily and voluntarily buying him food and scooping his poop.
