Saturday Centus: The Chair, the Cat, and Xentor

It was a cold and rainy day. The chair dominated the small room. That chair and the cat in the chair.

Xentor knew only one way to get warm and have any rest. Make friends with the cat and share the place to sit. A saucer of milk would do the trick for now.

The cat drank slowly if at all. All the while making a small crying sound.

Xentor pried it's mouth open and found a fish hook stuck in the roof. Carefully he removed the hook like he did on fishing trips.

The cat said, "Meow, meow."

Xentor had made a friend for life.

It is Saturday Centus day. Jenny in her blog, my tangent..., has challenged us with writing a 106 word story using these six words, in order, "the chair dominated the small room".
That is 100 of our words plus the six she has required. She did allow less, but I made it to an even 106.

Jenny also had a picture of a single dentist chair in a small room that we could use or we were allowed to use our own. I opted to use this one of Fluffy and his dining table chair. Fluffy belongs to my BIL, Danny.
You can find more writers signed up at Jenny's blog, my tangent.... You can also go there to find instructions for writing your own post.

There is something so soul soothing about being kind to an animal. They need us as much as we need them (as was obvious from your writings) great job on the prompt.

Sweet story. I like that the cat was in the chair. Lucky kitty; he must be a catfish.

Hi Jim! I'm so sorry being so late visiting!


What a fun and different direction for this prompt.

I am always intriqued to see how everyone translates the exact same words into different visions!

I really enjoyed this!

Thank you for linking.
