I'm a dog person. And while I can be quickly rendered idiotic by the overwhelming and undeniable cuteness of my dog, I do not post videos of him online. Nor do I seek out videos featuring other, equally adorable and fascinating dogs. You see where I'm going here...I just don't get the cat thing.
Lest you think I lack experience, I have a cat, or rather, there is a cat who deigns to visit my house each morning solely to eat and sleep off whatever he did the night before. I find him smug and a more than a little bitchy. But given the shocking volume of feline material sent to me, I gather I'm alone in this stance. So this week we offer a writing prompt that may be the excuse you cat folks have been waiting for...or it could also be used to launch the first salvo from the dog camp:
Write a story/poem/essay about an encounter that begins with the sending of a cat video. It can lead to romance or murder, I leave that enitrely up to you.
