It's the time of year to gorge small children with sugar and make them pee their pants! Which also means it's time for Susanna Leaonard Hill's Halloweensie contest. The rules: your Halloween story must be 100 words or less and include the words black cat, cackle, and spooky.
Last year I wrote about the poor Jack O' Lantern who couldn't go trick or treating. This year I'm tackling the serious issue of feline bullying. This particular entry was inspired by a "Short & Sweet" Susanna also hosts monthly.

White Cat's Halloween
By Lauri C. Meyers, 2013
Violet's sad on Halloween.
Teasing black cats treat her mean:
"You can't even cause a fright

Wearing fur so milky white!"
Violet narrows bright green eyes,
"I can too cause children's cries!"
Arching back, extended claws
Loudly yowl- expect applause.
Black cats cackle, "What was that?
Sounded like a laughing rat!"

Wilted tail and full of gloom,
Violet mounts her witch's broom.
Fading clouds, one moonlight ray
Makes white fur glow purple gray.
"What was that?" a youngster reels.
"Run! A ghost!" another squeals.

Violet yowls her kooky mew,
"White cats can be spooky too!"
