Hi everyone! I hope everyone is keeping well as we are getting close to Xmas. I'm not sure if I will get one more in before Xmas or not. We'll see, if not I will be back after the new year. In case I don't make it back, I wish all those who have stopped by here to read all my crazy flash fiction and strange short stories a Merry Xmas and the best of health and happiness in 2015.
The Three Wise Cats
It was rare of them to gather but it was that time of year.
They were on watch out. For what we really don't know.
One evening, just before dusk something caught their attention.
There didn't appear to be anything there but they remained still and kept watch.
There was a sudden flutter outside and when I looked there were three small gifts.
Very tiny boxes wrapped in red, gold and brown sat outside with a velvet bow on top of each one.
You would miss them if you didn't look hard enough.
This pleased the three of them and they got down from the window sill and under the tree sat the three little gifts.
It was some kind of magic that transformed them inside.
No one could touch them but the three cats.
With a blink they were gone and the three cats were off hiding.
We only guessed that they were enjoying their small gifts.
Hello everyone. Hope you are all well and happy. Since Xmas is getting close, I selected a picture that was taken quite a while ago of my Misty in the Xmas garland. Hope you enjoy. Have a great weekend!
Misty & Santa
The garland was set out on the floor to check the lights.
When I got back Misty had made herself comfortable in the middle.
She was quite determined to stay there.
I asked her why she wanted to stay there. It didn't look too comfortable.
Of course she never said nothing. Just settled herself down even more.
Being new in the home, I was guessing she was curious about the thing on the floor.
She still remained quiet and said nothing. It was as if she was waiting for something.
When I told her I had to finally put up the garland she looked up at me with her kitten eyes.
I sighed. Okay, I said. But only for one night. In the morning they go up I told her.
That seemed to make her happy.
During the night I woke and I knew it was coming from the kitchen.
I thought she was now playing with the garland. I thought I better get up before there were needles everywhere.
But just as I got there I heard a soft low voice. I stopped and listened.
Have you been good was the question I heard. A little mew was the answer.
A soft laugh filled the kitchen. Here you go was the response to Misty's little mew.
When I went further into the kitchen, no one was there. Misty was sitting in the middle of the kitchen floor.
I looked down at her and there was a toy mouse sitting at her feet.
Hmm, I said. What is this I asked her.
Did Santa bring this to you I laughed.
She looked up at me with her large kitten eyes and I knew the answer.
