Hello Dear Readers! This weekend’s Trifecta Writing Challenge was to write a fable in 33 words! They certainly keep us on our toes over there at the challenge! So here goes:
Dinner at the Fable Buffet
A cat and a parakeet were dining on pie when the cat remarked that he really should be eating the parakeet to which the parakeet replied, “Shut up and eat your Puddy Tat pie.”
Until next time . . . I love you

Haha! The cats are taking a beating today. And the moral is: The early bird gets the cat? This was really good.
Zing. Tweetie Twied to Tell him. Say – did you get an obnoxious e-mail from me? I sent one recently… (I did, really)
Haha! So twue! And no I didn’t get your obnoxious e-mail. Please send it to me again at email@example.com. I’ll watch for it! 😀
Thanks Ruby! So glad you enjoyed it!
Haha! Great job. Love the picture, too!
Thanks Lisa. I just love the expression on that kitty’s face! 😀
I f**king love you.
How sweet! Thanks Marie! 😀
Thanks Misky! So glad you enjoyed it!
That’ll make you drop your fork! 😉
Ha! No kidding! You said a mouthful! 😀
It’s like I keep saying … cats make great fable fodder.
So true ODNT! And I’d hate to think how empty the internet would be without them too.
Thanks Mags! This was a fun challenge. 😀
A cat in a fedora – really brought the fable together.
Ha! Well like I always say, the world would be a better place if more cats wore fedoras. (Ok, I’ve never said that before but I’m going to start saying it every chance I get!)
I think my favorite part was at the end when, after hearing the parakeet’s admonition, the cat spit out the pie she was eating and cried: “Mother???”
Matricide and cattibalism… you just don’t get that combo in stories anymore– well done!! : P
Haha! Apparently the cat’s mother had very poor taste. Matricide and cattibalism is a sorely neglected genre nowadays. 😦 I’m going to make it my goal to turn that whole thing around! 😀
