Chaircat Mao and Cheeser the Mouse

adorable animal bed bedroom

“Chaircat Mao,” asked Cheeser the mouse, “Why don’t you ever chase me?”

Chaircat Mao rolled his rotund body over and readjusted his luxurious gray coat.  “Well, have you ever chased me?”

“No, Chaircat Mao!  That would be silly!”

Chaircat Mao closed his eyes as if the question were answered.

Distraught, Cheeser scurried onto Mao’s flesh.  Without response, she balanced down to his nose and pulled on his whiskers.  “It’s not right, Chaircat Mao!  God made cats to chase mice!”

“Don’t be silly.  God made cats to be worshipped.  Now stop disturbing my nap.”  So, at last, Chaircat Mao slept.

This week’s Carrot Ranch prompt was about a mouse – which thrilled me.  I have several stories about mice, and they’re one of my favorite animals to write about.  If you’re mildly interested, they’re Elephant and The Lord of AllThe Beggar’s Coins, and To Stop and Smell the Flowers.

In this flash, I wrote about a Tom and Jerry-esque pair, except Chaircat Mao and Cheeser don’t MAKE ME LIVID.

    1. Yes! I took 2 semesters of Chinese in college, and I thought the pun with Chairman Mao (I know his name isn’t cat – I think it’s ‘hair’ related?) was too good. If I ever have a cat, Chaircat Mao will be his/her name!

    “God made cats to be worshipped,” Said all cats and their owners everywhere. Even dogs and dog lovers would agree.
