Seven Days, Seven Deadly Sins Challenge - 7/10


Greed

The more white than black cat pitied its voluptuous twin, always begging for snacks. It was easier just to take what you wanted. What you needed. What you had to have. For example, if she wanted the pretty bowl that held her food, well, she took it. If she needed to own that fuzzy mouse they slipped through the bars for her to play with, well, she kept it. If she had to have the sparkly shiny bauble hanging off this lady’s sweater while she peeked into her cage, well, she’d have it … just a little closer … and she’d have it.

  6. I love that not only are you doing all cats, but the cats are apparently all together. That is a sinful cattery indeed. Excellent job capturing not only the sin, but the cat and the personality behind it. Shiny.
