FFF55: Bloodstain


It all began with a stain on the bathroom floor. Smeared and ill-defined, but, unmistakeably, it was blood. A trail of gory prints led from the red pool, downstairs and into the kitchen. What kind of horror was I about to find?

Another battered field mouse corpse.
I wish my cats weren’t such keen hunters.

You're not pussyfooting around when you think up a 55.

Yes indeed, cat's just being cat, and something sans feathers nowhere near so messy,

It's rough being on the bottom of the food chain. cats are amazing to watch hunt--if humans could master that level of patience and concentration, who knows where we'd be today?

It's great when cats will clear the house of vermin for you, but do they have to bring the bodies in from outside?

Relatable, happy-memory write (the aforementioned cat, for me, was a childhood cat).
