girlie girl

She has more ribbons

Then she can possibly wear

In her own long hair

So, she dresses up her dolls

Then goes looking for the cat

Yeah Well

 

Outside my window

I saw a parking lot cat

Laying in the sun

For hours I watched it sleep

Seems, I was wrong ‘twas a bag

Gnome More

Ah, yes, the weekly Carrot Ranch Flash Fiction Challenge and we were tasked with creating stories about GNOMES. And of course, I had to toss in a cat. A cat who has the last laugh!

Thank you, to Charli Mills for these weekly opportunities to keep our wits and pencils sharp! Join her by FOLLOWING her blog at http://www.carrotranch.com

The top shelf of the bookcase was where Claudius took his naps. Lorraine always left it clear, so he could stretch out whenever the mood struck.

This Christmas, however, was different. She was decorating the bookcase. Now, there was garland hanging everywhere and wee figurines scattered on the shelves.

With a swipe of a mighty clawed paw, the garland was merely tinsel. One by one, each of the wee figurines was sent crashing to the floor. Sorry, not sorry.

As Claudius looked down from his perch he thought, be it ever so humble, this is no place for gnomes!

Box wasn’t empty

Could hardly believe her eyes

It held the whole cat

Claudius

He

Follows

Her around

From room to room

His feet between hers

She has nothing for him

In fact, she’d doing housework

He’s hoping she will drop something

Giving him a reason to be close

Such is a day in the life of a cat
