Modern Crazy Cat Lady

I awoke from my slumber.

My cellular device convulsed wildly atop the granite counter. It purred and hummed, flopping like a dying fish on an ivory dock.

A message this late at night?

The spasmodic dance continued briefly, then dissolved into an incessant scratching noise. Text damasked the small screen; “Don’t forget about us!

“Aha!” I laughed, giving the latch on the back of the phone a tug. It clattered to the counter, and I set the phone down gently. “Babies!”

Without apprehension, the cause of the seizing popped out immediately. Three minute felines! This was no surprise, since I had just received the newest version of the Meowtorola, equipped with nine bars of reception and a longer lasting cattery life.

Petting each one with my pinky finger to preserve their tiny vertebrae, each feline regained their original amount of joy.

After all three were purring contentedly again, I carefully slipped them into the tiny compartment and attached the latch.

I climbed back into bed. Life is purrfect.

    Yay or nay on the last sentence? It seems a tad lame to me. Input?

    If you don’t remember the title while reading your eyes might cross at the weirdness going on.

    In other words, slam dunk.

    My only crit would be that last line does seem a bit to cliche. Too Afternoon Movie Special tag liney.

    Good job otherwise

    I’ll have to think about how to change the last line, but it will happen eventually. Thanks for the feedback!

    Even with the title I had no idea what was going on here. I think I get it, but it was just a bit too much of a leap. Maybe it’s just cause I’m not a cat person? Nicely written and all, just not enough space to build up to the weirdness with enough detail to make it sensible.

    Cute and very imaginative. I must be a cat person, because this made sense to me.

    I didn’t get to see the feature, but oh well! Thanks for all the helpful comments!

    The, uh, “philosophy” behind this story was that phones vibrate due to cats inside of them. Based on a nightmare.
