When I arrived I saw everyone sitting around mending his or her
various wounds, scratches and contusions. No sight of the cat. It appears that
while they were running the machine the cat was twirling his tail in his usual
fashion and stuck it down into the printer at the most inopportune time and got

came close. They finally freed the cat, and to this day, the cat goes nowhere
near the machine.
