There is a mysterious creature in our home, one that is a constant source of puzzlement for our cat. The creature resides in the room with the computer. It whirs, makes odd internal noises, and then shoots out paper. Sometimes the creature pulls the paper back inside before shooting it out a final time. It usually comes to life when Husband is seated at the dining room table working on his laptop.
Whenever she hears the creature make a noise, Luna races to the computer room and peers into the place where the paper emerges. She often walks behind it to see if anything is there, then perches along side it to watch the paper come out.
If she is feeling particularly feisty, she will stick her paw in to catch the paper. That usually results in me or Husband needing to fix a paper jam.
The other day I changed out ink cartridges, and Luna was very, very interested to see what was inside when I opened the front. There was no creature to be seen, though, just gears.
I imagine Luna vowing to solve the mystery and find the creature inside the printer. Until then, she has a constant source of amusement and intrigue to keep her life interesting.
