“Ah, my favourite pillow,” mumbled Boo, the terrier. “Time for twenty winks.”
‘His seventeenth nap for today,’ thought Kitty, annoyed. “You better not snore!”

‘The clock never sounded like birds chirping before’ thought Boo, blinking to adjust his eyes to the bright light. ‘Where’s that silly cat? Woof! Why is my owner wearing that funny dress and hat? What’s with these awful cat-pictures everywhere?’
“Kitty, get down from there! Why is everyone bowing down to you?”

Kitty gave Boo a sideways glance, giving him the shivers.
‘The world has gone mad!’ thought Boo. He went back to a restless sleep.

What a fun story, Marianna. I have a cat that thinks she is an ancient Egyptian queen, so I could totally relate to this story. I also like the way you used single quotes for the thoughts and double quotes for spoken sentences. I never thought of doing that.

This is fun Marianna. All cats seem to believe they should be worshipped. Poor Boo sounds like my Luna. Completely walked over by the moggies. ?

I agree with Carrie like our “mingming”. Mingming wants to be noticed always or worshipped. Sometimes she scratches my youngest daughter because she is jealous that I have no time for her.

Seems like we all have cats who have delusions of grandeur! Your story brings all of us cat lovers together in a fun way! Good work, Marianna.

I love this story about cats. My family had a cat. It gave birth to two, one died. It was a long time ago. This story brought back memories. A nice story.

Sharing a Post

Why do my friends need to SignIn to read the post I shared?

Actually, this is a voting security feature. During public voting, only club members can read posts submitted for that contest. Since anyone reading the story is able to vote (click the Like button), we reserve these capabilities to members who SignIn. Before we implemented this security feature, people were voting multiple times and making the public voting process unfair and out of balance. To fix this, our staff finally decided to allow only members who SignIn to read the stories. Membership is free and easy, and ensures our club is safe, secure, and family-friendly!
