Flash Fiction #22











Just Purrfect

Hi Mom.

I’m fine – a little sleepy and tired, but I’m fine.

Since Ricky turned three, he’s been really active. I need to keep a close eye on him.

The only time I get to do housework is when he’s asleep.

We got that rescue cat for him, that I told you about, from the pound.

It’s a grey and black male, almost a year old, very patient and loving with him, even when he treats it rough. – – –

Mom! Gotta go; I’ll call you back….

RICKY! It’s okay to pet the kitty – but not with your sucker!



Go to Rochelle’s Addicted to Purple site, and use her Wednesday photo as a prompt to write a complete 100 word story.

Sorry that I’m a little late this week – for those who noticed, or cared.  I’m planning a road trip, and we just celebrated four birthdays in one party.  🙂

  2. Dear Archon,

    Happy birthdays. I remember phone calls like that when my kids were small. I smiled at the memories. Nicely done.

    It seems that rescuing this kitty is going to become a regular task. Funny story.


  7. Three years old! Work to be done. No spare time for a good few years more, I reckon. And the cat’s going to experience some life.
