Seven Days, Seven Deadly Sins Challenge - 7/12


The tortoiseshell cat swiped his sharp claws at the lady as she passed his cage again and threw in a low growl for good measure. His mind was seething with rant. You two-legged freak! Don’t you even think about it! *hiss* I wouldn’t come home with you no matter what you promised. You and your opposable thumbs can just turn around and go back the way you came. *snarl* I would destroy you and all your things. I eat shoes like yours for breakfast! *yowl* Go ahead, bring me home if you dare! But don’t expect me to like you!

  1. A cat's POV? Love it. :-)

  2. Liz - Thank you. I happen to know them best!

  3. and that is how i picture all cats.
    i was attacked as a child and scarred for life
    no kidding.
    good job!

  4. That cat is destined for world domination...

  5. I think he just needs a light tranquilizer so he can be cuddled

  6. Oh yes, I know this kind of cat well. I really liked this take on wrath.

  7. "you two-legged FREAK" - this is my favorite bit. It's very funny! Your voice is excellently wrathful. I used to imagine that all cats secretly thought they were tigers. I don't think I was wrong!

  8. "I eat shoes like yours for breakfast!"

    I love that line, and you'll never guess what the cat is doing to my favourite shoes right now.

    A x

  9. "You and your opposable thumbs can just turn around and go back the way you came." Is my favorite because my dad's first words to me when I was born were apparently about the significance of my opposable thumbs making me a tool user. And then it all just fed so nicely into every line after that. That cat's got fire!

  10. Tara - Really? That so sucks! No more cats for a while after Sloth. Promise.

    Alex - Isn't that what we all really want? Oh. Just me?

    glitterword - Good luck with that! I'll be behind you all the way!

    Lissa - Thank you. Yes. I know this cat too!

    Charity Girl - I think you are right. They certainly think they are larger than life in my house.

    Antimony - Ugh! Evil cat! No can haz shoes!

    Jeff - Thank you!

    David - My dad is always talking about the thumbs! If cats had them they would never need us.

    Thanks for coming by everyone!

  11. "Opposable thumbs" Hehe. I have never heard this before, but loved it.
    This cat's got some serious attitude. Yikes.
    Great job!

  12. Bryce - Some cats just need Valium.
