The Cat and the Dog

There was once a cat that never acted as a cat. He befriended dogs and bats instead of other felines relative to his kind.

This cat had a dream to bark, just like his dog friends. He practiced everyday but just could not do it.

Then one day the cat barked and amused the dog. This cat still was not satisfied, so he wanted to run like a hound and huntcat-dog

as well. His patient dog friend decided to take the cat to the forest to teach him to give his tips on god hunting. The cat tried and

tried but his teeth was too short to hold his prey or catch. Then the cat learned, he did it, he really did it, he caught a pigeon and

felt awesome.

The confused cat eventually felt useless and fake, so he decided to go back to being  a cat. A somewhat silly cat; quite contrary to

the ordinary. The cat was out and about barking and meowing and making a super strange that amused everyone. He had even gotten

bob tail just as his dog friend while hunting weeks prior to his sudden identity recovery. The poor cat has a serious identity crisis.

THE AILING PATIENT DOWN THE HALL

Her heart was pounding, rushed back and forth to the operating room, the doctor speculated death in about a week.

She had a major heart attack, the worst in two years. She had a renal failure last month and is a cancer survivor.

She used to be an architect, was married twice and had three children; of whom she could now hardly recognize as a

result of her dementia. A week past and the doctor observed that her condition had worsened. So we are talking about a

woman eighty-five years old with a upper respiratory illness, heart and renal failure. Finally the day came and her case was

as severe as it gets. Suddenly a tall dark handsome salt and peppered hair man hardly showing any sign of his age walked

in.

He glared at her in awe wondering how the woman he once knew so energetic and beautiful, got so ill and lying in her death

bed she had the same charm that was always her common trait.

He leaned over her and kissed her in a way that made the doctors and nurses fall to tears and what is still remembered today

as a historical moment of that facility.

Her eyes suddenly fluttered and then drooped, she smiled and said silently it was this moment that I was waiting for before parting

to the other side. She died happily and peacefully with the love of her life that she never had the opportunity to be with at her side……

…..

There are moments in life that we just cannot explain, but it lives in us for our entire life….

There are people that we meet sometimes that just lives in our memory just as a sweet dream, an illusion, that never becomes reality……..

She pushed her hair back with a smirk

Another missed call, the answering machine

takes a message…

Her guess enters her office

She stares without a care or sign of grief…

She smiles and says, “I intentionally gave you a sneak peek

into my life, so you can see how boring and lonely my life actually is.”

Furthermore, she added, “if you still care hereafter, then it I’ll perceive

that it was meant to be and if not then we may go our separate ways.”

He stares at her and says, I never loved you and now even more so,

“I prefer the bad ones.”

She smirks without a care and says, ” I figured you would say that.”

He says good and exit without looking back….

She stares at the desk before her, hardly affected and obviously

untouched by a common occurrence in her life…..

One day while walking near the stream, a dog named Billy found a nice juicy bone. He picked it up and took it back to his little dog house.

On his way back to his dog house, he saw another bone that was seemingly bigger and fresher. the dog with his instilled greed felt the need

to have that bone instead. So Mr. Dog obeyed his evil conscience and picked up the bigger, fresher bone. As he neared his home he saw

that there was a need for a detour since there was some construction near what seemed to be a makeshift bridge. The bridge was weak

and almost broke as the dog entered upon it with the larger bone. The dog leaped quickly back to his original stance, but upon realizing the

bone was about to slip away, he totally panicked and lost his new beautiful, juicy bone. The dog felt as a total idiot for giving up his original bone,

because his greed cost him both his bones so he lost the new and the old. Life, ‘huh’. That is why we must not be greedy.animals___dogs_sad_beagle_dog_sitting_on_the_cold_floor_049966_
