The Adventures of Super Gato

This is my submission for Velvet Verbosity's 100-Word Challenge, temporarily hosted by LouCeel here. (Thanks again, Lou!)

 This week’s challenge is the word Ferocity.

The Adventures of Super Gato


I’m wicked hungry! I really want that salmon on the table but… I’m too short.
Wait, I see a way!
Up on the chair.  Big jump, reaching out.  I catch the edge, but my body swings down under the tabletop, and WHUMP!  I’m back on the floor again.
OK, OK.  Shake it off. 
Up on the chair, big running jump.  I’m on!  Uh-oh. I’m sliding, sliding, sliding.  And off the other edge.  WHUMP!  Sigh…
Shake it off. 
Up on the chair.  Minor adjustment, and l—e—a—p.  Wow, look at me!   I DID IT!!!
Meow!
I am SUPER GATO!  Hear me roar!

  4. As I read this I could visualize it very well because we have our very own super gato! No I think ours is more of a crazy cat! What a fun post!

  6. Thanks for visiting, Everyone.

    Lou: Score! Thank you!

    Brian: Thanks!

    Mary: I should have known gatto was Italian for cat. Gato is Spanish, which I know only slightly better than Italian. Which is to say pretty much not at all.

    AuroraLee: Indeed. Then again, I've never know a cat who wasn't determined.

    Katherine: And they all have a crazy streak, too.

    Rhoni: Thank you!

  7. That kitty is super cute but I’m sure underneath that cuteness there is a soul of steel. Ha ha! Very interesting story.

  11. Ji: Thank you!

    Ti: There's a lot a cat can teach you about life's challenges and adversity (as well as the value of a good nap).
