Happy Halloween everyone! I’m not much into the gore of Halloween, but I am looking forward to taking my kids trick-or-treating tonight.
Susanna Leonard Hill is having another Halloween contest on her blog this year, and I had so much fun with last year’s contest, I wanted to do it again. It’s a Haloweensie contest, because it’s short and it’s for kids. We are challenged to write 100 words using the words spooky, black cat, and cackle. Here’s my contribution:
ARE YOU SCARED YET?
“I’m ready, ” said the little black cat.
“Let’s hear it,” said the big black cat.
“Booooooo,” said Little Cat.
Big Cat curled up. “Not spooky enough.”
“Ah ha ha ha,” she cackled, wrinkling her nose.
Big Cat yawned. “Not creepy enough.”
Little Cat bared her teeth. “Mwah ha ha,” she said.
“I’m still not scared,” said Big Cat, closing his eyes.
Little Cat took a deep breath and growled from her belly, getting louder until her body vibrated.
“Rawr!” she bellowed, and Big Cat jumped straight into the air.
“Not bad,” Big Cat said.
Little Cat smiled. I’m ready.
Lovely story.. 🙂

Fabulous story, Katie! What a cute spunky little critter that little black cat is! And practice makes purrfect 🙂 This is story I think a lot of kids would enjoy 🙂 Thanks so much for joining in the Halloweensie fun for a second year in a row!
Yay for little cat!!! Good to see Big Cat leap straight into the air with fright. Small, but mighty.
Ready indeed! Go little black cat.
Cat in training, huh? That was cute. I think little black cat will do fine this Halloween.
