Flashfiction: The Cat with a Hat

I was on my way home passing by my usual paths when I encountered a strange and unusual sight.

There, in the middle of the walkway sat an orange cat. At first it was busy cleaning and licking itself, but then it stopped and stared at me with those green eyes. However, it was not the way the cat looked at me that was unusual, it was that this cat wore a black top hat. The hat was small, just the right size for the cat’s small head.

Our Dog Got A Deadly Disease

In my previous post, I mentioned that our puppy has been vomiting for a few days, so we had to took her to the vet yesterday.

“It’s positive,” the vet said while he showed us a white plastic strip with two red lines.

We found out that she caught the dreaded parvo virus –  a bug that is deadly to dogs if left untreated. Continue reading “Our Dog Got A Deadly Disease”

Being Kicked When You’re Down

My goal for the past few months has been to survive.

There are things that happened in the past –  a bunch of things last year, actually, that made my living situation a bit critical. Therefore, I have to do what I can to survive.

Unfortunately, our dog fell ill suddenly. She’d been vomiting for three days already, and has been refusing to eat.

I first thought it might be nothing serious. Dogs tend to eat things, and then regurgitate it when they find that it might be bad for them. But she’s been vomiting, and not able to keep any food or liquid down.

We will have to take her to the vet later, and hope that it is nothing serious.

But seriously, though, I do not need any more of these things now. I am looking for solutions in my life, not more problems…

I don’t really feel like writing about these things, but I need an outlet, you know?

Last week, I was busy. I had to go out of town, to a nearby City for a seminar for two days. Nothing notable about it. It was just tiring. Haha… Well, the food was not bad, and the coffee was tolerable. So, I guess the ordeal was not that horrible.

I haven’t been in the mood for writing in a while, and there is that creeping feeling at the back of my mind that is telling me that I am being a lazy idiot for not working on my story. I just can’t seem to get myself to move the story forward. In any case, hopefully, by complaining about it here, I might get to thinking about it, and perhaps, slowly get to writing on it again! Hahaha…

Well, that’s all for now. See you around, and have a nice day.
