CAT FLASH FICTION-THE WISE CAT AND HER SHADOW




The Wise Cat and her shadow
 
 
Some journey far and wide to see the wise cat and her shadow. They want to hear them both speak.
Her name is Sweet Pea and her shadow's name is Millie. Sweet Pea does most of the talking and Millie mostly agrees with everything she says.
If you ask a question that is not favorable, Millie will politely tell you to try another question.
It can be most difficult to get the answers that you are seeking because they talk and talk about stuff you don't care about.
Some of them have learned that if you bring certain treats, that will buy you favor. This can be most annoying when you didn't know this.
But all in all it's worth the journey to hear Sweet Pea and her shadow Millie talk. It's quite specular.



Hi everyone, I hope you enjoyed today's cat flash fiction. Have a great weekend!

CAT FLASH FICTION-CURLED IN PINK

Hello everyone. Today I'm going to do another cat flash fiction piece that I hope you enjoy. I've started a cat short story that I thought would be ready for today but didn't get there. I will try to have the short story up for next week. I'm thinking of this being apart of a series of short stories about a group of cats. I won't post them all here but once I have a collection I will publish them together as an e-book and print book. Hopefully next week you'll get to read the first one.
Have a great weekend!


CURLED IN PINK
 
 
The pink basket was a special place according to Elizabeth. No other cat was to go here. The other cats told stories about what she did in the pink basket.
She didn't care and wasn't going to tell any secrets about the pink basket.
The other cats tried to sneak in one day into the special pink basket but when they tried to, something chased them out. They said it was like stepping into prickles.
Never the less when she curled up in her bed of pink, nothing happened and she would cover her nose with her paw and tail and dream of things unknown to the rest of us.
Curled in pink forever.

CAT FLASH FICTION-IT'S ALL IN THE EYES





It's All In The Eyes
 
 
He will tell you quite a story. Don't believe him of course but he will try and do his best to tell you stories about his adventures.
Yes, he is a cat we know and he can talk.
Well, sort of. If you bend down and put your ear to his level you will hear something that sounds like a child's voice.
The thing is he doesn't like you doing that. He says it's quite annoying and if you were to look him in the eyes you could hear him just as well.
This is the tricky part. If you look into his eyes, you could get lost in his special magic. The gold eyes with their black slits, are mirrors to another world we think. We believe maybe this is where is adventures have taken place.
You don't want to go there but then we have no way of telling if he really is telling the truth. You're better off leaning over and listening to him.

THE GATEKEEPERS



Hello everyone. I'm doing some cat flash fiction today. I hope you enjoy! Have a great weekend!

The Gatekeepers
 
 

You will meet the timid orange one first. He will look at you with keen interest and ask you questions that you must listen to very carefully. If your answer does not meet his expectations, you won't get any further.
If he is in a good mood he might give you a second chance and a offer of catnip might not hurt. If you don't have any catnip on you, an offering of even a small cat treat might grant you entrance.
The second gatekeeper is the hardest but don't let the unruly black fur scare you. He's just too lazy to groom himself properly. His wild gold eyes might captivate you and don't let that happen. All will be lost if you let that happen.
No, you don't want to know what happens.
He will only ask you one question and that will be your name. Now that appears to be quite simple but the three of them have this way of making you forget everything.
So it's best if write your name down on a piece of paper and put it in your pocket for safe keeping.
You will need it.
The third gatekeeper  is the largest of all them. Don't shake when he sniffs you and eyes you with his green eyes of jade. He keeps secrets from the other two.
He might tell you one of his secrets if you promise not to tell the other two.
Say yes right away. Then you will be on your way.
Just be aware that he might have lied.
