Eric, he didnīt have to clone anything out: Kitty was stuffed. You can tell this by the glazed look in its eyes. Glass.
Even if it had ben real, Kitty would have known that old song about Tiger By The Tail and all would have been well.
On the other hand, if it wasnīt the tiger that had been stuffed, perhap a gentle word to the Consulates of Australia, New Zealand...
I just love these sophisticated encounters with fellow members; makes me feel right at home.
