Copy Cat

Our Sam is a Copy Cat. He adores the printer. The minute the machine whirs into motion you can count on Sam to come running. He likes the noise it makes as it prints the page. He sits and watches the paper as it slowly advances towards him; finally to be spit out and the cycle completed. To him it’s cat magic. He likes it so much that he has figured out how to make his own copies.

One night, just after we went to bed, we heard a strange beeping noise. Was it a cell phone low on battery? A smoke alarm low on battery? After getting up to investigate, I found Sam sitting on the printer. The beeping sound was coming from the printer; it was out of paper. Sam had made lots and lots of blank copies for himself. Oh joy.

He must know I’m writing about him this morning because he just jumped up on the printer. No copies yet ...

Hmmmm ....... now which one of these buttons makes this thing work?
