The cat dozed on the windowsill while Human dressed himself in the other room. Suddenly, ears erect, the cat turned to the front door and the sound of footsteps.

"F.B.I.! Open up!" A stern human voice sounded through the small apartment. The cat fled underneath the sofa, its tail a-bristle.

The human, drowsy and alarmed, stumbled out, peered through the peep-hole, and opened the door. He was still in this pajamas.

"Mr. Kallis?"


"You are under arrest under federal piracy charges. You have the right to remain silent, anything you say can be…"

"…What? What have I done?"

"The warrant claims that, between the hours of 2am and 4am last Tuesday night, you downloaded several copyrighted feature films…"


"…Including 'Stuart Little,' 'The Great Mouse Detective,' and 'Pink Floyd's Laser Showcase,' via torrent client."

"But I didn't download those. I wasn't even awake then."

"Well then, somebody on your network downloaded them. Do you have any roommates?"

"No, it's just me."

"Well then…"

The others escorted Human out, shirtless and aghast. After some time, the cat emerged from beneath the sofa and assumed his former position on the windowsill. The sun came out from behind a cloud and began warming his fur. Dozing off, a wry smile crossed his furry lips.
