Three Word Wednesday~A Fancy Feast

It's Three Word Wednesday... and the prompts were: night, delicate and jaded. So, here's my contribution.


Diva



She walked the patio, slowly advancing towards the feast displayed on delicate china. Her eyes flicked over the carefully placed setting, taking in the perfectly broiled chicken, cooked to perfection and covered with a sauce that was created just for this recipe. I stood to the side, anxious over the presentation, confident she’d find this meal, God willing, to her satisfaction. She stretched, examining her nails, finally settling in front of the plate with her preferred night meal drink of water to one side. Leaning forward, her nostrils flared as she sniffed, then took her first bite. She stood abruptly, closing her green eyes, obvious in her body language the dish offended her. Her head turned towards me, disdain in every line. I sighed, picked up the offending dish, scraping the food into the trash. Damn her and her jaded palate! Reaching for the tin of chopped kidneys in gravy, made by her favourite brand, I again questioned my decision to ever let a cat own me.

Traveling Chica isn't as big of an idiot as you probably think though she doesn't blame you for thinking that

Now I really hope that helps: I'm gonna go get another coffee O:)

I've been owned by a cat once. I have since switched to dogs, who just do disgusting things.

This is nicely done.

Haha, you're welcome! Sorry it took me a ridiculous number of tries to make it work! I don't usually enter all the text in: I just copy and paste the URL and clearly using that shortcut has ruined my ability to do previously simple tasks :)

bwahahaa I love the surprise ending. I really thought you were writing about a poor hapless servant dealing with an old haughty noblewoman. well done :)

Angel said...

I loved this. And it's so true! Cats do think they rule the world..lol

I was meowing by the second sentence, having been owned by numerous cats. Cats never come when you call them; they just take a message and get back to you later.

Ha ha! Like others, I loved the element of surprise!
And I particularly loved 'night meal drink.'
