100 Word Challenge | Inside the Mind of a Cat

Eyes like slits in the fabric of hate, he waits. He perches atop freshly laundered sheets, gray fur clinging to white flannel. This is his house; the woman who feeds him his servant.

She looks over, notices him stealing warmth, dirtying her sheets. She smiles.

He doesn’t trust her smile. He stretches, kneading the flannel into a position from which to pounce.

She approaches, a mug in her hand.

He sniffs. Perhaps it’s a gift to appease his wrath. More likely it’s hers. Tea, coffee, hot chocolate, or…

Her hand runs the curve of his back.

He purrs. She’s allowed one more day of servitude.
