CRAZY CAT LADY
A Paranormal Fantasy Flash Fiction Story with a poll at the end. Please vote! ✅
The kids called her the crazy cat lady. She smells like pee. Her clothes are covered in hair. She’s weird.
Their parents chided them to be kind. Maybe she has reasons for being that way. But the kids refused to listen.
Not that she minded. Could call her whatever. Just leave her and her cats be.
As she filled food bowls one morning, she noticed a new cat huddled underneath some rose bushes, trembling. She knew that look well. It spoke of a hard life and a yearning for peace.
Retrieving another food bowl, she set the dish at the porch edge and retreated. Getting too close would only stress the newcomer more. Instead, she went inside.
“Yes, we have a new pack member,” she informed the cats as she settled down in her recliner.
It didn’t take long. The new cat seemed to know—as had the others who joined her. They understood she was a safe haven for the cast-outs, the ones stripped of their shifting ability. She didn’t ask what crimes they committed. She accepted them because no one had when it happened to her, and she was determined not to let another suffer as she had.
