It woke me up early, my brain swimming confusedly towards consciousness and HUH? WHAT'S HAPPENING?

IS THERE A CAT BEING DUMB?

I blundered to my feet. The noise was coming from the missus's dresser, all three drawers of which were shut tight.

The middle drawer was the noisy drawer. Upon opening, the idiot cat looked up at me, then nonchalantly jumped out.

I have no idea how that happened. I called in sick today. If I'd been on a vector to go to work, that dope would have been in there until 7 pm this evening. Which would not have been pretty.
