The Gremlin tries to Escape

th (7)

Today while paying bills online, the Human Female that lives with the Doctor heard a clinking sound behind her computer.  Glancing up she saw the little critter she dislikes so much, had fashioned a key from its metallic droppings. It was just about to make its great escape.

“#%$!” she shouted.  Marley began to bark and Cleo bounded in from the bedroom to see what was the matter.

By sheer luck, Doctor’s Female Human was at the right place at the right time. She jumped up, slammed the cage door shut and extracted the key from the Gremlin’s long clenched fingers. The key had been four weeks in the making, all the while the Gremlin had seemed so docile and inactive. Needless to say, the Human Female that lives with the Doctor had plenty to say when the Doctor got home. She never did like that Gremlin.

But now; what to do? What to do with the Gremlin?

    It is cute How have you kept it alive all this time

    • “Actually gremlins require very little maintenance when keep as pets. They eat very little; 20 grams of feed will last a week. The Doctor puts it in a small 20 ml plastic medicine cup, like the ones used to give children their cough syrup, and sets it in the corner of its cage. Gremlin likes small pieces of plastic, rubber, bits of metal and soybeans. It has not touched the cup of water he put in there a month ago”.

      “Jan, I’ll tell you just like I told the Doctor, gremlins do not make good pets. We can talk about this later, but at the present time I need all the help I can get to convince the Doctor to get rid of that pest ASAP”.
