FFfAW Challenge-Week of December 5, 2017

This week’s photo prompt is provided by Enisa


This was his playground.
The big wheel had been such fun, he could dangle, swing in between the spokes, balance on the outside and cling onto the underside (hopefully the claw marks wouldn’t show too much). He preened himself from all angles in the mirror, determining which was his good side, then when he got chilled, scratched at the seat fabric to nest contentedly in the fibres.

Dark now, the keys rattled in the lock and he bolted underneath the seat.
It sank above him, missing his head by centimetres.
The radio clicked on, the key turned in the ignition and the engine purred.
‘Hello Mum’ he thought drowsily as he curled up and went to sleep.

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have recently lost our beloved dog Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney, and now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of my GSD so had hers done too. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

    At least kitty was inside the car and not in the engine block (sometimes cats will crawl in there because of the warmth).

    How very cat-like Di, so nicely done.

    • Hehe. I’d read a couple of takes, including yours, and wondered how to be different. I remembered someone’s cat climbing up curtains and shredding their quilt to make a cosy nest, so used that idea. Then as engines do tend to purr, it was safe with ‘Mum’.

  3. Awww, sweet story! I imagine that is how a cat would think being inside the car. Great story!

    Cats can make a playground out of anything πŸ™‚

  5. Awwee. I too want to live like that πŸ™‚
