The game was getting intense, and then, out of nowhere, a kitten found its way onto the poker table.

Not as a prize, it just decided this well lit table with it's warm felt top was the perfect place to curl up for a nap.

"Is this one of your's?" the counselor asked the android.

"It is not," he answered.

"Well, I fold," said the doctor.

"I'll fold too," said the engineer.

No one on the starship wanted to wake the cute kitten up.

@Teryl_Pacieco this reminds me of "The Hurkle is a Happy Beast " by Theodore Sturgeon.
