Seven Days, Seven Deadly Sins Challenge - 7/11


The sweet earthy smell made his nose twitch in pure happiness. Oh, how he loved the minty bouquet, to inhale the fragrant addictive weed. He adored rolling his sleek glossy fur in the leafy herb. His whippy slender tail would point straight out when he caught even the tiniest whiff. Bring more! Now his attention is waning as the odor begins to fade. His eyes slowly lose their luster. His overactive nose settles to a more dignified pace. A nap. A nice quiet nap is all he needs. Wait! What’s that alluring aroma? He must have it! Bring it now!

  1. CATNIP!
    i was wondering how you would do lust =)
    i picture those tom & jerry cartoons where jerry gets jealous of tom w/a girl or is used as a treat for her.
    you did a great job!

  2. If only my cat actually responded to catnip like that, my ol' pet decided my couch was more fun to scratch at than the catnip smothered scratching post... silly kitty

  3. I was looking forward to this one and I wasn't wrong! Very funny - I love the ending, totally captures the mad way cat's behave when faced with the 'nip.

  4. Where's the drool and the tongue hanging out of his mouth and the crossed eyes- oh, wait, I was thinking of your father watching a Victoria's Secret commercial.

  5. I'm like Tara. I was wondering how you were going to attack this one from a cat's POV.

    You pulled it off magnificently! I love this!

  6. I'm not ashamed to say I was hoping for some kitty erotica. But having the lust for catnip is much more creative, and possibly more tasteful as well. I definitely love how quickly he switches gears based on proximity of the nip.

  7. Definitely catnip. Very clever!

  8. Tara - Thank you! All of these ideas were inspired by actual cats!

    glitterword - I've never known a cat not to like it but I have heard that not all do. Our current 4 all enjoy it but react completely different.

    Charity Girl - Thank you. I'm sure they are offended by my descriptions.

    Suz - Ha!

    Jeff - Thank you!

    Bryce - So sweet of you to say that! Thank you!

    David - Shameless. Just shameless. Thanks for coming.

    Liz - Thanks. They were fun to write.
