"Daad! Molly's caught something again" Came the shout from elsewhere in the house.

"What is it?" He shouted back.

"It's another one of those extra-dimensional thingies!"

Dennis sighed, as there was more shouting. This time from his wife, Gloria.

"Molly! No! Drop it! Drop it! Dennis! Bring the fishing net!"

"Oh Jeez." He groaned, as he put his game on pause. "OK! Be right there!"

This was the third time this week she'd caught something in the house. And by that, he meant some Thing from some where.

"Bring the wire net! This one's got a beak!" Shouted Gloria.

    And there was me expecting a mouse! Those interlopers from another dimension really are a pain :)

    Inspired by my cat Molly batting at something I couldn't see ands trapping it on the floor, before getting bored and walking away leaving nothing behind. Sprinkle on some Lovecraft and voilĂ ! :)
