Seven Days, Seven Deadly Sins Challenge - 7/7


Pride

The compact dark gray cat carefully washed his paw completely ignoring the woman standing outside his cage. He didn’t care why she was there or what she wanted. He was terribly busy. So much beautiful fur to wash. So many perfectly manicured claws to sharpen. When a feline was this handsome extra care needed to be taken to maintain a beautiful exterior and a healthy interior. Besides this woman didn’t appear to be his saucer of milk. Wearing her cheap knock-offs she obviously would never be able to uphold and maintain the quality of life that he expected. No, demanded.

  6. Great Pov of Pride because the woman is the one that gives everything that makes the cat what it is and yet the cat's pride will never admit that she is needed.

  11. Good to see another who started with Pride. Going to have to document what order people do them in. But a cat for Pride really is awesome and has me anxious to see what you do for the others.
