The Handy Shower Mat

Item #: SCP-XXXX

Object Class: Safe

Special Containment Procedures: SCP-XXXX is to be contained in a 5’ by 5’ cell with a single shower installed into one side of the room, with SCP-XXXX set in front of the shower. The shower is to be used at least once every 48 hours, with excess water being “fed” to SCP-XXXX. No other requirements are needed to contain SCP -XXXX After the events recorded in Addendum XXXX-BLOODYPALMS, blood has been added to the Restricted Testing List and security measures are to be increased during blood testing. The complete list of liquids that can be tested on SCP-XXXX can be found in Doctor Green’s office.

Description: SCP-XXXX is a 21” by 34” bathroom floormat that is salmon-orange in color. On inspection, SCP-XXXX appears to be an ordinary floormat, if only slightly strange in color choice. However, microscopic analysis of SCP-XXXX shows that it is composed of millions of meniscal interlaced hands, stretching upwards like cotton threads in normal floormats. Biological tests have shown these hands to be anatomically similar to that of a human’s, however genetic tests have come back inconclusive.

Whenever a subject with dry, bare feet steps onto SCP-XXXX subject will typically express surprise, describing a feeling of being slightly tickled between the toes and on the soles of the feet. However, when a subject with wet feet steps onto SCP-XXXX further anomalous properties begin to manifest. Several of the hands that are not currently being compressed by the subject will begin to grow, reaching the size of an average human hand in approximately 2 seconds. Two of the hands will gently latch on to the back of the heels of the subject, holding them into place while the rest of the hands begin to rub across all available surfaces of the feet. SCP-XXXX hands are able to absorb liquids through an currently unknown method, and will rub across the subject’s feet until dry. This takes approximately 10 to 15 seconds for water.

Original recovery: SCP-XXXX was recovered from the Maxwell Mansion located in [Data expunged] on June 7, BBBB after local police received a distressed call of a “living floor mat”. A SCP field agent was sent in for retrieval, and amnestics were used after securing the object. The family could not describe where the floor mat had come from, and the cleaning staff at the mansion were equally unaware of the mat’s origins. Investigations are still ongoing to see if more of specimens of SCP-XXXX exist outside of containment.

Addendum BLOODYPALMS: On [DATA REDACTED], blood was approved to be tested on SCP-XXXX using D-Class personnel. D-3721 was instructed to pour provided blood sample onto his feet, then step forward onto SCP-XXXX. Upon stepping on SCP-XXXX, the mat began to grow hands as normal, holding D-3721 into place. However, as soon as SCP-XXXX came into contact with the blood on D-3721 the hands around D-3721’s feet began to immediately tear into D-3721’s flesh. Immobilized by dozens of hands, D-3721 was completely eviscerated by the SCP-XXXX in a matter of minutes. As pieces of D-3721 came off his body the pieces were fed into a newly shaped hole in the center of D-3721. Analysis of the recording shows that the mouth appears to have been created out of several smaller hands forming teeth encircling the mouth for an unknown distance set into the ground. Further testing to identify the depth of SCP-XXXX’s mouth have yet to prove that there is an end. Approval to change SCP-XXXX’s classification to Euclid is pending.

Addendum XXXX-A: The list of liquids tested on SCP-XXXX-
Water. Results: Appears to be the feeding mechanism for SCP-XXXX. Not feeding the mat water after 48 hour intervals shows the object begins to move around its cell, actively searching for water. On [Data extracted] after not feeding the object for 4 days, SCP-XXXX discovered how to turn on the shower head, beginning to feed off of the shower for the next 3 hours.
Death Wish Coffee. Results: SCP-XXXX appears to begin sweating, and rubbing on subjects turns frantic and anxiety prone. Monitoring over the next hour with no subjects in room resulted in the object growing multiple hands and doing multiple activities around the room, including [DATA EXPUNGED]. Quote as follows from Doctor Green, “Alright, I don’t know what you were thinking John, but I don’t think I’ve ever seen anything so goddamn funny in my life. Who could have thought it was capable of doing cartwheels!”.
Don Julio Tequila. Results: SCP-XXXX begins to slowly start rubbing further and further up the test subjects body. Subject continues to be immobilized as SCP-XXXX begins to strip subject of clothing. After subject is fully nude, SCP-XXXX releases the subject then drags itself into the provided bathtub in the cell. Subject typically shows signs of extreme panic throughout the process.

Blood. Results: See addendum XXXX_BLOODYPALMS.
[DATA EXPUNGED]. Results: [DATA EXPUNGED by Order of 05 Counsil]. Quote as follows from Doctor Green: “Jesus, never again. Unless officially approved from higher, no other SCP’s are to be used in testing on SCP-XXXX. In all my years I’ve never seen anything like that before.”
