Party Purrfect

They’re shaking in their boots

Those wide-eyed little cats

Cause Shery bought some hats

For them to wear

Now, she sees it proper

That they dress up you see

For cookies served with tea

Tablecloth pressed

You never know what’s next

With happy little girls

If they like gloves and pearls

Quick, run and hide

And Nice Dogs

Flamingoes and unicorns

And lots and lots of cats

Oh, for a world like that

Then add some

Angels, fairies, and elves

Wands and magic potions

Wild dreams, crazy notions

Sounds oh so good

Seasonal Toys

Oh, the cat sees the tree

Ornaments and tinsel

Bright lights scattered at will

Fun to be had

Lady Catterly

Twice daily like clockwork

Open door at seven

Invitation given

To the locals

Cans of tuna, kibbles

Food dishes on the floor

With water, she filled more

Ready for guests

Patiently they waited

Washing off their mittens

Momma cats and kittens

Tummies to fill

A Beginning at the End

Charli Mills gave us rainbows and cats and the outdoors as parts of this week’s 99-word Flash Fiction challenge.

Please consider participating at the Carrot Ranch.

Joni drew her knees up under her chin and closed her eyes. If only she had a friend with whom she could share moments like this. There was a gentle rain falling, but she was protected by the thick foliage of her favorite tree.

Outside was where Joni went to think and dream. Lately, she’d been dreaming of a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow. So, she always tried to be under the tree during gentle rains.

She opened her eyes to see the sun shining, and walking out of the rainbow was a golden-haired cat.
