Beautiful Jessie

Could you offer Jessie the ‘naughty torti’ a loving home?

She is about 18 months old, petite, spayed and very affectionate.

In true torti style though she does like to be an only cat and she does nip so will need to be with an experienced owner.

I have met Jessie myself and found her to be an absolute sweetie, very keen to be stroked, tried to get on my lap and had an intelligent engaging face. She did nip me a few times but it was more playful than aggressive and I think it’s just her way of saying no. She did immediately turn around to be made a fuss of again.

If I didn’t already have 2 cats I would happily have taken her home!

Personally I would say this is all part of her charm and an experienced owner wouldn’t find it a problem at all, however she wouldn’t enjoy being around young children.

She is currently at Peterborough Cat Rescue, do get in touch with them if you think this cheeky girl could be for you. DSC_1113

Old Smokey 100WCGU Week #174

Posted on 10th November 2015 in #writingworkshop/ 100WCGU
Old Smokey

Old Smokey

Sheila had wept when she saw the damage. However innocently done, the heating engineers had killed her beloved smokebush.

David had planted Old Smokey when they first bought the house back in 1987 but now both he and the plant were gone.

This had been August last year yet still she mourned the loss of the plant, and her husband, each day as she walked past.

Unbeknown to Sheila, today, as the front door closed, an unseasonably warm breeze caused a flutter that gently rifled the leaves of a tiny smokebush sprouting from the ground.

Toby – 100WCGU – Week173

Toby paused, the agony of loss felt physical, he’d known it was coming but it still hit him like a punch to the heart.

The knowing, the expecting, the anticipating didn’t make it easier; the pain was just as raw and overwhelming as if it had been out of the blue.

He’d loved her. There was no denying it, she was the woman of his dreams and as the flames leapt skyward he knew his heart was breaking.

‘It’s done.’ He spoke the words curtly and ended the call. Turning his back on the burning car he walked away feeling his heart harden with every step.

This week’s prompt for the #100WCGU was:

Weather wise, it feels very strange here in the UK. It is now November but extremely mild. However, we have lots of fog around which makes for great atmosphere for the recent Halloween celebrations and this week, for Bonfire night. Let’s hope the temperature does not drop for November 5th. The prompt has to be around this theme, doesn’t it?!

It is: …as the flames leapt skyward..
