Licorice is a highly-evolved mini beast who ran into my house almost a year ago. He excels at sleeping and whining about the wintry weather, but he is kind of cute. A typical dialog would be something like:

Licorice: meow (I want to go out)

Ken: open the front door

Licorice: meow (you mean human, why haven't you fixed the weather yet)

Ken: close the front door

Licorice: return to favorite chair for another round of sleeping

News Flash

Licorice has been selected to join an elite Cat o' Nine crime-busting team. We're all very proud that he's whipped himself into shape. His new role will involve dialogs such as the following:

Licorice: meow (I want to come in)

Suspect: open the front door

Licorice: meow (I'm here to spy on you)

Suspect: close the front door

Licorice: go to a chair for a round of sleeping and listening

Results from first mission

Licorice has completed his first mission, from a house with two suspects and three allegedly starving cats. Here are the amazing results.

while (Suspect1 and Suspect2 are in bed) {

Bruno: *scratch* *scratch* where are all the people? i think they are behind this door object. perhaps if i dig through it...

Boots: (meeeeooooooooowwwwwwww) death is upon us for there is no food

Midge: stares at the other two assessing if there is anything she could add

Suspect1 and Suspect2: roll over and place pillow for maximum sound wave inhibiting


while (Suspect1 or Suspect2 is out of the room but not close to the food dishes) {

All Three: run from the suspect to the food dish looking pitiful on the way.

Suspect1 or Suspect2: ignore cats while getting on with morning routine


while (Suspect1 or Suspect2 is close to the food dishes) {

All Three: (meow) food please. NOW!

Suspect1 or Suspect2: sigh and feed the cats as they are completely under foot
