Imagining the Information Age: Stories/Visions

I turned on the light, but it was an opossum. "How did it get in?" I wondered, then heard another scrabbling noise, and a gray cat came in from the kitchen. It chased after the opossum. More noise from the kitchen, which turned out to be two pigeons, spooked by a bulldog pup.
