Having guests Tania rose early. The visitor’s child, Josh, followed her asking incessant questions. As he leant on the bench something ran up his pyjama sleeve. Screaming, he ripped his clothes off and the offender, a mouse, scurried to safety under the dresser.
Tania grabbed the cat. “Do your stuff Killmouski.”
Now everyone was present. They pulled the dresser away from the wall to give the cat greater access. With a whiff of mouse Killmouski waited patiently. Finally with a pounce, it was caught. The game of torture began.
Feeling guilty, Tania caught the cat to save the mouse.
It is good to be writing a 99 word flash for Carrot Ranch again. It seems like a long time and it is good to have Charli back. She asks us this week :
July 6, 2016 prompt: In 99 words (no more, no less) write a story about a cat. It can be a cute and adorable kitten or it can be mean old tom that swipes a claw at unsuspecting humans. Cats are prevalent in the mining country – mousers and companions. Some survive in luxury with cushions in a sunny window, while others fend off coyotes. What cat comes to mind and how does it spark a story?
