Item #: SCP-TRETTER-J
Object Class: Safe
Special Containment Procedures: SCP-TRETTER-J must be kept out of any room where staff are currently creating or updating SCP documents on a computer. SCP-TRETTER-J is capable of opening doors, so doors must be locked if any work is to be done. In the event SCP-TRETTER-J is able to enter a room where computer work is being done, it should be distracted with treats or cuddles until it can be removed from the area.
SCP-TRETTER-J is allowed to wander Site-726. A litterbox and food/water dishes have been placed in the site's cafeteria for it. During down time or off hours, personnel are encouraged to play with SCP-TRETTER-J for relaxation and morale purposes.
Description: SCP-TRETTER-J is a female stray cat that Dr. Loyd brought to Site-726 on the 18th of August, 2012. It has black fur, with the exception of a few white tufts of hair on its chest, and is currently quite overweight. Staff are reminded not to feed SCP-TRETTER-J scraps from the cafeteria. SCP-TRETTER-J is very friendly and playful. Staff have described it as "always acting like a kitten." Staff generally refer to it as 'Tretter' or 'Trots' for short.
SCP-TRETTER-J is generally non-anomalous; however, when an SCP Foundation staff member begins to create a new SCP document or edit a pre-existing one, it will anomalously become aware of this and attempt to enter the area where the document is being prepared. If SCP-TRETTER-J is able to do this, it will try to disrupt the work being done in any way it can. SCP-TRETTER-J has been observed knocking items off the desk, blocking the computer screen, stepping on the keyboard, and generally acting like a nuisance.
Addendum: Below is a list of documents that SCP-TRETTER-J has affected:
- SCP-1504 - "Joe Schmo," a particularly durable man who's every action is misperceived as normal.
- SCP-TRETTER-J caused Reasearcher Vanderbilt to accidently delete the pre-existing documentation, by pushing his hand controlling the mouse in an attempt to get scratches.
- Who am I? - Ongoing reasearch into the true nature of SCP-431.
- SCP-TRETTER-J knocked an open bottle over, spilling water onto Dr. Loyd's desk and keyboard. The keyboard stopped functioning, so work on the above document was stalled for several minutes.
- SCP-2504 - "Emergency Services," a set of possibly extradimensional entities aiding the Chicago emergency services in day-to-day activities.
- SCP-TRETTER-J was able to get into Site-726's server room, while Dr. Loyd was working on creating the anomaly's documentation, and chew through the power cords of several server racks. It is currently unknown how SCP-TRETTER-J was able to gnaw through the cords without being shocked. Due to sudden server outage, SCP-2504's documentation along with several other key documents were corrupted. Recovery of the data is still in progress. Dr. Loyd was severely reprimanded for incorrect data protection practices.
- SCP-2579 - "Grant's Bears," a species of bear that is able to anonymously produce music and will dance to it when trying to find a mate
- SCP-TRETTER-J attempted to enter the room where the document was being prepared. As the door was locked, it instead howled and meowed loudly, annoying and distracting Researcher Vanderbilt.
- SCP-3002 - "Attempts to Assassinate Thought," an incredibly contagious meme that manifests as a childhood friend.
- SCP-TRETTER-J stepped on Researcher Vanderbilt's keyboard, accidently bypassing admin locks on the anomaly's documentation, infecting Researcher Vanderbilt.
- Recruitment Drive (R-28126) - A document concerning the hiring practices of GOI-019 (The Factory).
- SCP-TRETTER-J, strangely enough, did nothing during this research project.
