#21 - The Inner Life of Pets

Pets are people, too. We all anthropomorphize our animals, even hearing in our minds what their voices would sound like if they were to speak to us. We imagine them playing cards and making long-distance phone calls when we're out of the house. We see them falling in love with other dogs at the park, or getting in gang fights with the cats from the next block over.

Imagine your pet's inner life. If you don't have a pet right now, get creative. Remember a beloved long-ago pet or just imagine one.

PLEASE READ THIS: There are a few regulars out there who haven't quite mastered the permalink thing. PLEASE leave your full link in the comments; don't just tell us you've scribbled. Thanks! And anybody new, welcome to Sunday Scribblings and please feel free to participate. Just write a response to the prompt and put it up on your blog, then post a permalink in the comments and we'll add the link.

I didnt get into the inner life of the my rabbit because each time I tried my computer shut down. However, I was able to quickly jot down what came to my head right away before my computer erased it for the 5th time.

I'm probably doing this all wrong as today is the first day I heard of Sunday Scriblings. As a coincidence I happened to write a story about the life & death of my cat yesterday, Sunday. A few minutes later I went to the Daisy Lupin's blog to see what she was up to & lo & behold she had written a story about her lookalike tabby cat's life & death. Then today someone told me to go to this blog & post my story & I see many many more cat & dog stories. Anyway this is my website: http://vintagecollage.blogspot.com

Late posting, again. Sorry. Life is getting in the way of my writing lately. I wanted to do a "play / drama" with the cats doing the talking, but I couldn't figure out what specific scenerio to do. I think tho that I did okay revealing their inner attitudes and lives.
