Zap

No one ever doubted that Will was a genius -- not the least of which was Will himself -- but all those smarts did little to help him figure out a way to stop his cat from eating the house plants. When his sister came for a visit, he thought of a way to teach his cat and test out a new invention at the same time.

He waited until his sister lay down for a nap after she arrived on her red eye flight. Then he aimed the device carefully at her. He zapped Louise and then he zapped his cat. Then he watched as his sister’s body arose. Of course, the first thing she did was start chewing on the house planes. Will knew his invention was successful; he had swapped the bodies of his sister and his cat. He figured with his cat now inside the body of a human, he could explain things about what to do and what not to do. He thought his cat would know have the brain power to understand. Instead, his cat just stared blankly back at him with his sister’s eyes. Will aimed the device at Louise and the cat again, ready to swap them back to normal...
