SCP-XXXX

Item #: SCP-XXXX

Object Class: Safe

Special Containment Procedures: SCP-XXXX is to be kept within a standard humanoid containment cell sized appropriately for a domestic cat to move freely. This cell is furnished with several pieces of cushioned furniture. Recreational objects such as climbing towers, plush toys, and small plastic objects have also been provided. SCP-XXXX is to be socialized with tri-weekly by on-site researchers. Tests involving SCP-XXXX are to be approved by Dr. Bannock. Personnel wishing to provide SCP-XXXX with additional recreational objects are to purchase them using their own funds.

Description: SCP-XXXX is an animate quadrupedal feline constructed of gray fabric. All attempts to pierce or damage this fabric have failed. SCP-XXXX is suspected to lack any form of internal structures, as all attempts at viewing SCP-XXXX’s interior have shown a featureless black space. SCP-XXXX’s body is completely devoid of markings or orifices, with the exception of two black eyes and a woven mouth. Vocalizations made by SCP-XXXX are similar to that of a young feline. SCP-XXXX is extremely sociable and will attempt to interact with any living creature that enters its vicinity. If it is not regularly interacted with, SCP-XXXX will emit pained vocalizations and will become withdrawn until it is interacted with again. SCP-XXXX has a tendency to imitate the actions of other entities it interacts with. SCP-XXXX shows no apparent need to eat, drink, or breathe, although it will imitate these actions if another entity is doing the same.

When presented with the corpse of an organism, SCP-XXXX will extend its jaw through unknown means and consume the corpse in its entirety, causing its body to bulge and stretch around the added mass. All attempts to measure the tensile strength of SCP-XXXX while in this state have failed, as SCP-XXXX’s skin will visibly remain the same density throughout this process. No limit has been found to the degree that SCP-XXXX is able to distend, with it having completely enveloped the corpse of an adult Balaenoptera musculus1 during testing.

Once a corpse is fully enveloped, SCP-XXXX’s body will slowly return to its normal size. During this deflation, SCP-XXXX will experience alterations in its morphology consistent with the physical characteristics of the organism it consumed. The most common alteration is the addition and modification of limbs, although other alterations such as changes in SCP-XXXX’s proportions and vocalizations have been recorded. The only physical traits of SCP-XXXX unable to be altered are it’s existing facial features and gray coloration. Alterations will remain for approximately 4 hours after consumption, after which SCP-XXXX will regurgitate biological waste consistent with the composition of the consumed organism.

Addendum: Included below are several excerpts from the SCP-XXXX experiment log for the purpose of further understanding SCP-XXXX’s transformation abilities.

Introduced Corpse: An adult male Crotalus horridus.2

Corpse Integrity: Shows initial signs of decomposition.

Developed Alterations: SCP-XXXX’s torso extended approximately 150 cm more in length than previous measurements, with its abdomen ending in a developed tail and rattle. SCP-XXXX used this additional length during testing to wrap itself around the legs and arms of researchers but was not tight enough that it inhibited blood flow. The developed rattle was used by SCP-XXXX almost constantly during its transformation, often shaking it while interacting with researchers.

Regurgitated Matter: A mass of decomposing keratin and liquified organic matter,

Introduced Corpse: An adult female Pterois miles.3

Corpse Integrity: Shows signs of advanced decomposition. The interior of the corpse is almost completely putrefied. Despite the corpse’s venomous spines, SCP-XXXX was able to consume it without issue.

Developed Alterations: SCP-XXXX developed a pair of pectoral fins, an anal fin, and a large dorsal fin constructed of several long spines. These fins were observed impeding SCP-XXXX’s movement, limiting its vertical mobility. Chemical analysis of the spines tested positively for lionfish venom. As such, no further interaction with SCP-XXXX was conducted prior to regurgitation.

Regurgitated Matter: A large pile of broken spines and liquified organic matter.

Introduced Corpse: A pile of deceased Acer pseudoplatanus4 leaves.

Corpse Integrity: Slightly damaged.

Developed Alterations: No observed alterations. SCP-XXXX consumed a single leaf before regurgitating it. SCP-XXXX then spent the remained of the test playing with the pile of leaves, repeatedly jumping into it from provided furniture. Requests to provide SCP-XXXX with additional plant matter for recreational purposes are currently pending.

Regurgitated Matter: A slightly damaged leaf.

Introduced Corpse: A female adult Struthio camelus.5

Corpse Integrity: Severely damaged. The corpse was presented to SCP-XXXX in several pieces, while the left leg and head of the corpse were not present.

Developed Alterations: SCP-XXXX’s legs extended approximately 1.3 meters and developed two large toes similar to that of an ostrich.6 SCP-XXXX’s neck extended approximately 1.2 meters upwards, with SCP-XXXX’s head remaining unaltered at the end of the neck. Wings developed on the sides of SCP-XXXX’s torso, with each lacking feathers. On several occasions, SCP-XXXX attempted to take flight using these wings, with SCP-XXXX eventually jumping off of provided structures in an attempt to glide. Despite ostrich’s normally territorial nature, SCP-XXXX remained sociable with researchers during its transformation.

Regurgitated Matter: Several shattered portions of bone and a large amount of liquified organic matter.

Introduced Corpse: The head of a male adult Alces alces americana.7

Corpse Integrity: Corpse is taxidermied, and is well preserved.

Developed Alterations: SCP-XXXX developed large antlers approximately 1.4 meters across. Due to the size of these antlers relative to SCP-XXXX’s head, its sense of balance and mobility was severely hindered. Additionally, SCP-XXXX developed large ears that lacked structural support and were unable to keep themselves upright. Auditory cognition tests determined that the ears did not improve SCP-XXXX’s hearing ability.

Regurgitated Matter: A large compact mass of metal slag, wood pulp, and shattered bone.

Introduced Corpse: A pair of ████ brand insulated leather boots.

Corpse Integrity: Well preserved and unworn.

Developed Alterations: No observed alterations. SCP-XXXX approached the boots before lightly biting the toe of the left boot. After examining the right boot in a similar fashion, SCP-XXXX knocked over the right boot over and climbed inside of it, falling asleep shortly afterward.

Regurgitated Matter: None.
