Breakfast: Flash in the Pan (125 Words)

While finishing up his breakfast the old man hears the chirping of little birds outside his window. So he goes out to fill the bird feeder so they will have plenty to eat. Meanwhile, waiting for the right moment while the little birds get their fill off the feeder a little squirrel sits behind the tree waiting patiently. Once the birds finished and flew away the little squirrel jumps from one branch to the other till it makes its way to the top of the feeder. Working very diligently the squirrel finally get the feeder tipped to its side in order to get the seeds, when all at once it gets pounced by the cat that was sitting patiently in the corner of the yard.

This post is dedicated to the M3 flash fiction challenge.

Chosen word: Corner

        grey squirrels in
        my garden and
        the cats always
        like to play too 🙂
