Monday’s Finish the Story: Alberto

2015-07-27-bw-beachamHe thought he found the perfect hiding spot. He did not want to remain in this house any longer. If he did, he’s going to explode.

“Oh Albert, time for dinner.” The cat-sitter called. Ugh, my name is Alberto, not Albert. 

He inhaled sharply. Tuna again? And not even the good stuff! Catherine and Rose give me the good stuff. Mmm, halibut. His tongue began to stick out and drool began to fall.

Why couldn’t they take me along anyway? Afraid I might ruin the fun? Afraid I’d be cat-napped? He chuckled soundlessly.

The cat-sitter clicked her tongue as she lifted the basket. “Oh Albert. Why are you hiding? Do you not like to play with me?”

Albert couldn’t help it. “Lady, if you ask me to eat that tuna mush again, you will wish I never play with you.” The cat-sitter screamed, dropped Alberto, and ran out of the house. Alberto laughed. “That’s more like it.”

  1. What a fun tail Yinglan! I love the last line where the cat says, “That’s more like it!” I think my cat did that once. The sitter never came back. Stay tuned for the next challenge. Sure to be another good one. Be well my friend… ^..^

    1. I think the cat’s restraining himself to not talk but he couldn’t help it. He needed some fun. 😀
      Thank you for reading and presenting the image along with the line. I had fun and now feel a little sad for the kitty. I’m looking forward to next week’s challenge. See you then. 🙂
