Sorry for the melodramatics, but I just couldn't resist using that opening...snicker...We have had wind and rain now for four days straight. I was going to get the puter from mom yesterday, but we were without power most of the day and no matter how I tried I couldn't get it to work! Darn that magical stuff called 'lectricity! What kind of city is Letri anyway???
Worst of it was that I couldn't write my ending for @rumblepurr and @inigo's story...............................................
It was a Dark and Stormy Night, and Dr Mew and Baby Patches were starting to worry!
All the floofy cats in the world were being drawn to the warehouse in which Evil Mr Misha's De-Floofing machine was running. Dr Mew could tell even Baby Patches was being drawn in by the sound. It was a very subtle noise, Dr Mew could tell. Somewhere between the sound of a box of Meow Mix kibble being shook, the kitty Cha-Cha, and the opening of a can of Merrick New England Clam Boil. There was also a strange noise in the background that Dr Mew knew he should recognize, but couldn't quite place.
"Oh, Dr!", Baby Patches mewed,"Why am I so hungry?"
Dr Mew could tell that even Baby Patches would soon be under it's spell, but as he started to suggest she sit down, Evil Mr Misha spoke.
" Mewwww! We meet again! But you are too late to save the intelligent species on THIS planet! Mua! Mua! Mua!"
"So, you think this place should go to the dogs, Misha?" Dr Mew asked. A still not quite recognizable noise was building in the background of Dr. Mew's senses. A sound that was not quite cat, yet vaguely familar.
"Oh, very much Mew!" Evil Mr Misha assured the Doctor. "King Dougal assures me that when he takes over the Universe, that all the Tuna and Nip shall be mine! All Mine!! Mua! Mua! Mua! And I will be the only cat left with the ability to purr! MUA!!"
"Oh, no..." a transfixed Baby Patches mewed softly. "Dr, we have to do something, but I'm so hungry I want to go see what's in that giant catfood bowl..."
Dr Mew could see that she was surrendering to the alluring sounds being generated by the De-Floofing machine. There was no catfood bowl.
"Sit down Baby, and think hard about your favorite toys!" Dr Mew said to distract Baby Patches from the Machine's song. The noise in the background was still building and pulling Dr Mew's attention from Evil Mr Misha."Concentrate!" he told himself
"Mua, Mew!, You can't save them now!" a confident Misha purred." I will have all the floof, and all the purrs, and all the Tuna, and rule the puny humans all over the galaxy!"
Dr Mew rumbled back at Misha as a smell began to enter his conscienceness. "No Misha, I can not allow your evil plan to succeed! The Humans need their cats!"
Several of the De-Floofed cats that had been lying around in a daze were stirring Misha could tell. What was up? Evil Mr Misha could have no use for them now, but something was bringing them out of their stupor. It couldn't be the Machine!
The noise in the background was almost understandable now, but foreign, not Cat nor can, nor Dog. Some of the cats looked like they were hunting in their sleep. Almost ready to pounce on their quarry, but with a still glazed look to their eyes. Dr Mew could tell it wasn't enough yet! He needed a distraction!
" Baby!" he mewed softly to Baby Patches. "throw out all the little tinkly cat toys you have on you!" He said as he pulled all his favorite crinkly balls from his pockets. What was that sound and smell? He knew them, but the machine was still over-riding it's true nature.
Evil Mr Misha was also starting to be aware that something was changing. He ran to the machine to adjust it. Which gave Dr Mew and Baby Patches time to throw the crinkly, tinkly toys out amongst the De-Floofed cats. The few that had not been drawn into the machine yet were definitely coming out from under it's spell and went for the toys. But Dr Mew could tell the distraction would not be enough to save them. But what was that wonderful elusive smell?
The noise that had been building in the background kept changing and growing. Dr Mew could almost feel a "psst, psst, qua" to it now. But what was it? Between trying to understand the noise, and trying not to lose his concentration on Misha, Dr Mew had not thought about what might be going on outside the warehouse. But now he caught flashes of yellow and black outside the windows.
Evil Mr Misha was so busy attempting to turn the volumn up on the De-Floofing Machine that he did not see Dr Mew tell Baby Patches to go open the warehouse doors. Baby Patches ran to do so while Misha's back was turned. The smell had gotten her attention too, and she knew something wonderful was out there!
" Turn it up Misha!" Dr Mew rumbled deep in his chest. The smell was so intoxicating that he knew the De-floofing Machine would soon not be able to over-ride the other cats' desire for it! It would do Evil Mr Misha no good to turn it up, and would destroy the machine!
But Misha was so intent on ruling the universe that he wasn't paying attention to Dr Mew now. Turning the knobs on the Machine up, the noise barely covered the sound of the warehouse doors opening.
Oh. The. Wonderful. SMELL!!!
A big smile crossed Dr Mew's face as he finally realized who had come to his and all of the cats' rescue!
" GEORGE!" he rumbled in his biggest cat greeting to George the Super Duck. All of the cats were alert now and looking to pounce and Kangaroo Kick with wild abandon.
Evil Mr Misha was frantically trying to make his machine louder, but smoke and flames were beginning to rise from it. With a frantic "Meoouuw!" he jumped in to save his ill-gotten Floof just as there was a large POOF! from the machine.
And all was quiet.
All the Kong Duckies and Plague Ratsies were greeting the cats. The cats purring and pouncing with glee.They did not care at the moment they had no Floof, since they knew it would grow back, and they had their duckies and ratsies to play with!
Dr Mew and Baby Patches looked over at the ruins of the machine and laughed.
There lay Evil Mr Misha in a daze, now a Sphynx Cat.
Well, there you go, my ending to this installment of the Dr Mew series. What do you think Dr Mew and Baby Patches will do next?
