55 - Cat Show

The indignity was almost too much for a feline to bear: feathers waved in her face and voices urging her to perform ridiculous stunts while strangers stood on the sidelines watching and laughing. All of this must be endured for what? Just a bit of dried kibble, salmon-flavored. Muffin was having no part of it.











About Friday Flash 55: The challenge is to write a complete story in fifty-five words. If you've written a 55-flash, go let The G-Man know!

Cats aren't much for tricks are they?
Eat, sleep, meow, crap, and shed.
Loved your fantastic feline 55!!
Thanks for playing, and have a Kick Ass Week-End

animals are smarter than humans at times in many ways.

Happy Friday.

My first thought was Good for Muffin! Then I saw KB had already said it. Poor Muffin reduced to such foolery. Cats are not so easily fooled.

Love it! I would much rather come back as a cat, not a dog. Waaaay too much expected of them! And, I'd love to bring you along on my next shopping trip :o)
