The Unwanted Pet by Jeanna Tendean

The Unwanted Pet
by Jeanna Tendean


Disgusted, he watched it, though hidden from it’s view. He stayed hidden from it most days. He realized that wanting it had been a colossal mistake.

It never shut up or stopped eating. It laid around all day stinking up the room.

And the cries it made when it mated turned his stomach sour like rotting fish did.

The worst part, though, was that it tried to touch him with its filthy paws and mouth.

So one night, when it drifted off to sleep, he quietly crept up and smothered it to death.

And then the cat was happy and free to roam about…

That is quite clever. Now I'll freak out even MORE so when I wake up in the middle of the night to my cat just staring at me...
