That was my initial failing...my first draft was over 1200 words. Not only was it waaaaay too long, but it was still not even finished and starting to become a Dawi Zharr version of War and Peace.
I'm still hacking and slashing it down to a more suitable Reader's Digest story.

Due to a colleague of mine getting a virus on her auditory vestibular nerve, I've just gotten the job of taking 10 students on a trip all next week. It's gonna be a nice trip, but I hope I'll find time to do a small entry.

RE: Scribe's Contest IIIAdmiral 04-29-2015

Good work, folks! 800 is a tight limit, but will keep the total text length of all entries down once it's time to read and vote. Thank you very much for entering! Your enthusiasm and creativity is great to take part of, and I think this will be a special writing contest.

If anyone wonders why I've been absent more than last week as Bloodbeard told you about (thanks for taking care of things, Bloodbeard!), we've had a sad visit to the animal hospital. Our beloved cat, Busan, lived out all her nine cat lives in her 11 years of happy life before epilepsia cut it short. She survived falls from balconies and windows (she bypassed all nets and safeguards...), a four day winter snow storm and being hunted by a big dog. The kind and clumsy toppler of miniatures was always so glad and joyful and friendly, and reminded us of a dog in her loyalty and manners. She's been a very good friend of us through years of adversity, and I won't deny I was devastated by the loss of such a lively and playful companion, who always stayed a kitten no matter her age and only invented more fun and games through the years. She always loved when we played Warhammer games or had workshop days, and she participated in her own way. Her sister miss her and has been searching for her.

I haven't really recovered yet from the grief, but I've returned home after staying at my brother's place where there is no Internet connection at the moment, and I hope to proof-read all your inspired End Times entries. Very good work, all of you.

Sorry for your loss Admiral, I've greatly enjoyed the pics and stories you shared of Busan and her sister. Losing a beloved pet who is part of the family is never easy.
She obviously had a full and charmed life Takes Hat off

@Fuggit Khan: Thank you very much! I appreciate the support a lot. Busan's memory is honoured by it. Those cat pictures are great and explains not a little about the mysteries of felines. Big Grin

@Dînadan: Thank you Dînadan! The proofreading sure cheered me up. Oh boy, what entries we've got for the End Times theme!

Well done, folks. Now, let's see some more entries before deadline, eh? Wink

@ Admiral: Hell that is, young padawan! My condolences!

When my cat died I was down for days....
And every time a black cat crosses the garden I still turn around.

Seems like that he is an angel now, though:

So sorry about your little mate, Admiral.

Well, I found out about the competition at midnight last night and dutifully slapped the keyboard for an hour, so word count wasn't really a problem for me! Good luck entrants.

RE: Scribe's Contest IIIAdmiral 04-30-2015

@DAGabriel: Thank you very much! Agreed, it's hell. I'm sure your cat lived a good life, and one sure miss the little animals once they're gone. That's one reason to show how much you care for them while they're alive. The same is true for humans, come to think of it.

For some reason I can't see the picture in your post. Would you please like to upload it again?

@Doombeard: Thank you, I agree completely. I've always been convinced that should be the case. It's one's near and dear that fill life with true joy and meaning, and animals are very much a part of that. We've had such fantastic pets, in particular our two cat sisters and a male cat called Ferdinand who reached 19 years of age and who was astonishingly clever and caring for us, and even other cats (apart from those he fought furiously, of course). You can only wish such fantastic beings long, healthy and happy lives. As long as those lives should be.

@Roark: Thank you kindly. Writing at the last minute have some benefits, right?

Last day to get your entries, in folks. Don't miss out on this End Times special. Happy

Note: I'll try to send confirmation messages to all who enters once I'm back again from today's festivities.
