Worrisome Developments - Diary of a Necromancer
Excuse me, I'm making perfect sense, you're just not keeping up
Worrisome Developments
Snip may have blown her cover last night:

She hasn't previously displayed any ability to see what's on a TV, but when the sketch shown above came on, she suddenly leapt up and started patting at the figures on the screen and looking behind the panel. I rewound a couple of times to confirm that she was definitely reacting to something and not just chasing a bug (she even sat watching it from the floor when I booted her off the table), and she only lost interest when a different scene came on...

I believe this may be a clue as to what planet this blasted animal is from.

feeling: amused amused

We did have a cat once who consistently seemed to be able to see things like racecars on the TV (she'd sit up top and try to catch them...), but this is the first notice of a screen that Snip's taken in all her seven years. And the weirder part was when she checked out the back to see where they'd gone. Now, the other cat was nearly as much of an idiot as Weasel (who is the World's Dumbest Cat, and routinely gets lost between the window and the drapes), so I did not fear this strange power, but if Snip should get the hang of seeing in 2D, I think she'd be logged on to the internet chatrouletting with other supervillains within twenty minutes...

And it was the only thing she reacted that strongly to (she did seem to notice the screen one other time while I was watching the DVDs, but caught herself when she noticed I was watching her... worrisome in itself)... Will get the sets back to you next time we game, just finished the last disc.
