Cat’s eyes

March 7, 2013

I share my warm, dry shelter with an assortment of two-legged, no-tail creatures who give me food and sometimes stroke me too. This makes me feel happy. But the two-legs spend much time sitting near a moving coloured picture and rarely communicate with each other. That makes me feel unhappy.

  1. Sometimes they stare into a little lit-up slate in their hand or talk to it secretly by their ear. They must be very lonely.

    I wondered what the title had to do with the story for a minute… I was being dense. Well Done Amanda.

      Again, as you’ve pointed out, there’s lots more to be written on this theme. Maybe I’ll have to extend the challenge to One Hundred Words a Day. Then again, maybe not!

    Oops I hope you weren’t offended I have actually extended you story with my comment [sorry]. good idea for a bit of fun though community writing in 50 word packets might work… then again might be dismal.

      No, of course not, I wasn’t the slightest bit offended. I thought your ideas were spot on, exactly the kind of thing I was thinking. I also love the idea of collaborative writing – maybe that’s a rainy day idea for the Fifty Words Facebook page. I’ve done collaborative story writing with small children and we always have great fun pooling everyone’s ideas.
