It started with an ant.

Not a giant or an elephant, but a tiny ant, scurrying across the kitchen floor, dragging a leaf.

The cat and the dog spotted the leaf moving, but not the ant pulling it. They both dived for the leaf at the same time and became entangled.

The entanglement led to a fight, and all hell broke loose. They knocked the oven over, and the gas pipe ruptured.

The owner came and switched the light on to see what was happening.


An ant scurried away from the burnt out shell pulling a leaf behind it.
