This week our musical prompt from The Book Blogger for the one hundred word, flash fiction challenge is the new Adele song, Hello.
After the heavy subject last week I thought I’d try a more lighthearted response this time.
Are you sitting comfortably? Well then I’ll begin.
‘Hello from the outside,’ said the cheeky mummy cat, giving the window a tap.
There was no reply.
The cat looked in the window and said, Please help, my kitten is hungry.
Then an odd voice called, ‘Hello from the inside.’
The door slowly opened. The kitten ran forward, and then stopped in surprise.
‘Well hello! I’m pleased to have company. Look, here’s cat treats to eat.’
The next day the mummy cat was cross.
‘Silly kitten! You’ve told your friends about this place.’
Luckily, the odd creature said, ‘Ah, how lovely, you’ve brought your friends. There’s plenty to share.’
On a more serious note, Crete does have a problem with feral cats. There are many animal charities, mostly sponsored by ex pats of various nationalities, to provide care, re-homing and neutering services.
