"Not now, John."


"Not now, John."


"What is it, John? What is so important that you must keep blathering on incessantly?"

"What is so- what is so important? We are cats, Sherlock! We have been transformed into cats!"

"I am well aware of that fact, John. I am also aware, as you are as well, that Mycroft has sworn the effects are temporary and we will be back to our usual selves within forty-eight hours. What. What are you doing?"

"I'm cleaning your ear."


"The fur around it's a complete mess. Do you... want me to stop?"

"No, you may continue if you so wish. The sensation is not entirely unpleasant."

"So what are we going to do for the next two days while we're stuck being cats?"

"The conclusion of my previous examinations of the feline persuasion was that they seem to spend an inordinate amount of time sleeping, eating and sitting in sunbeams."

"That doesn't sound too bad, but, I have to ask, why were you studying cats?"

"I was bored, why else?"

"Why else indeed. Now, budge over."

"Budge. What. John?"

"I'm done with your ear. I want to sleep now so move over. Never mind, I'll just lay here."


"If you'd stop squirming you'd actually be pretty comfortable."


"Sleep, Sherlock."
