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

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

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

Cat number one said
I’m hungry. So, let’s make noise
And he raced downstairs
Cat number two followed him
Cat number three stood on mom
