Succinctly Yours - A Microfiction Meme #58

Grandma at Grandma's Goulash provides a picture and a word prompt for this Microfiction Meme and the rules are use the photo as inspiration for a story of 140 characters OR 140 words.

Want more challenge? Use the word of the week in your story. This part is optional.

This week's word is TORRID here's the picture and my offering, using the picture and word of the week  in 140 characters, including spaces and punctuation.

Being groomed by her friend,Torrid,was mostly bliss.

Fluffy just wished she would be a little more careful and not stick a claw in her eye!

I guess they don't have the paws for grooming, do they.

Nicholas Temple said...

I've a big grin on my face. Thank you.

Beach Bum said...

Great writing. My cat tries to do something similar to my wife's dog.

Valerie said...

Aww that's so cute. Nicely done, Pearl.

Banker Chick said...

Sweet kitties, a good use of your words.

MorningAJ said...

No pain, no gain Fluffy!

Thanks for the laugh. This is typical cat behaviour.

I'm happy to have made you laugh Cloudia x

Cats claws are a bit sharp Anthony ;)

Glad it made you smile Nick

Thanks Beach, I can imagine the dog's reaction. :0

Cheers Valerie x

Yes they do look sweet, thanks BankerChick

That's true AJ LOL

Love this .. and if Torrid grooms the way Rose does .. poor Fluffy can expect her ear to be nipped!

Mama Zen said...

How funny!

Ron said...

Grandma's Goulash said...

Very clever to use torrid as the kitten's name. We were thinking along the same line. Ah, great minds!

Linda said...

Ah yes, the painful claw in the eye! I can certainly see why she'd wish not to have that happen!

Cute picture!

Pat said...

I hate it when that happens. Perhaps Fluffy could suggest to Torrid that she get a good manicure.

Secret Agent Woman said...

Ouch! Sometimes you have to suffer for beauty.

Akelamalu said...

Torrid looks like a nipper to me Daryl!

Glad it made you smile Mama Zen :)

So pleased you enjoyed it Ron x

Yes I guess it does Anders LOL

Thanks Bee x

Yes I noticed we had the same thoughts on the pic Grandma :)

Not something one would look forward to is it Linda ;)

That's a good idea Pat. :)

I guess so SAW LOL

CrystalChick said...
