Jack Bauer was having one of 'those' days and turned to the world's last best hope - international kittens of mystery, Kai and Xena. Episode One ended with Kai trying to subdue a rogue kitchen chair - it happens - and unless he can defeat the chair the terrorists will surely escape...
Just as things looked desperate, an orange blur rushed through the cat flap. 'I'll take this one, Kai,' meowed Agent Tribble. 'You go on and save the world!"
Below we see Agent Tribble in a life and death struggle (Tribbles know no other kind) with the evil chair.
Kai rushes through the house looking for the terrorists only to find his worst fears confirmed. They'd already eaten. Every bowl had been licked clean. Noooo! And worse ... they'd escaped and left a bomb in the house.
Chloe recognised it immediately. 'They wouldn't...' she gasped. But they had. Far worse than a dirty bomb, these mad terrorists had rigged a clean one - packed with insecticidal shampoo. No kitten would be safe.
Could Kai, the kitten with four left feet, defuse it in time? Pause for screen to split into four and Kai to trip over. Question answered, Xena is rushed to the house. Below we see Xena trying to sniff out the red wire ... or should it be blue? And are cats colour blind?
Realising he was staring at weapons grade flea shampoo, Kai watches from a safe distance.
But not safe enough. The insecticidal shampoo bomb had a shaped charge. A Kai-shaped charge ... causing a cone of liquid to spray upwards and ... splat. Kai is drenched from the neck down.
Then comes the hair drier. Noooo!
Xena can't bring herself to watch. Of course Jack looks like this every week - anything less and he'd suffer electrode withdrawal symptoms. But will Kai's flea-free fur hold on for another week?
