Automatic prayer wheel

Have you seen this lost robot cat?

You probably can’t read the type on that poster above, so let me type it out for you:

For information leading the return of the feline 2000X: Half Robot - Half Cat Super Techno Cyber Hybrid

Can be recognized by these features:

- black and white “fur” coating
- infrared optics in eyes glow red day & night
- stainless steel claws with poison tips

Programmed to speak six languages but will answer to the name “Cicil.” Escaped from lab on April 1st, 1999. Last seen near Inner Mission.

DO NOT PET THE CAT! Any contact can be deadly! If seen contact Dr. Steven Lambert at lostcat@hamsterwheels.com

Apparently, the flyer has been put up in San Francisco, San Diego, New York, and Park City Utah during the 2002 Olympics. You can download your own copy of the poster to put up in your neighborhood here.

(Thanks to El Rey for this one!)
