The Jonesy scenario

You're on a spaceship, one of 2 survivors of an alien's feeding frenzy. The alien's still on the loose,and the ship's computer,just to annoy you,won't shut off the autodestruct. You reach a shuttle with all the supplies you've managed to scavenge in a BIG hurry . You're good to go! Then you hear a plaintive meow on the speaker-in your panic you forgot the 2nd survivor-a kittoh,stuck in his carrier wondering where the heck you are-and did you pack enough cat treats for a long voyage! 'DETONATION T MINUS 10 MINUTES' It's a big ship. Do you go back for the cat? HOW,and WHY?

Well, the last time I was on a ship (of the water not space variety,) I had a protracted disagreement with a steward over the fact that pets were not included in the emergency evacuation procedures, that ended with him admitting that they couldn't actually stop me if I insisted on going to get my cats from the kennel before getting on a lifeboat. I then memorized the quickest route from my cabin to the kennel to my assigned mustering station to make sure I could do it in a hurry.

So I think odds are, my cats would not have been forgotten in the first place.

One of two survivors? Does that mean the other survivor is the cat? And is the alien a shape-shifter?

I'd get Ridley Scott to hire Sigourney Weaver to kick some alien behind while Jonesy and I safely snuggle in the escape pod.

LOL!! Assuming the alien isn't a shape-shifter...I'd let the cat out of the carrier, step on its tail lightly, but enough to produce a large hiss, throw catnip on the alien, and let the cat have at him. Then throw more catnip into the shuttle to lure the cat there, use the carrier to whack the alien over the head and hop into the shuttle after the cat.

Remember the scene where the crew's tossing supplies into a cart and the alien shows up? Talk about express checkout!


ne way. I'd make sure I'd gotten all his food,treats and toys, (and some catnip Parker'd grown in the engine room) rig up a gorgeus robot she-alien complete with wig and rouge 'what's hatchin' sailor'? Grab the carrier,escape in the shuttle THEN cash in my frequent flyer miles for an upgrade!
