    Below is my entry for this week's Five Sentence Fiction.

The topic was 'blades'. 

      He entered the room, desire in his predatory eyes.
She watched him, fascinated by the power of his body.  His muscles undulated as he walked, rippled across his shoulders. She relented, and prepared to give him what he so obviously craved. 

He lowered his head, the goal attained, and his whiskers grazed the bowl as he lapped up the milk.

  1. Movement nicely captured. Knowing cats, I can guess what he was prepared to do with his blade-like claws had he not gotten what he wanted. :)

  5. Cats are all-powerful. And sexy.
    Dogs are creeps, always out to please.

    I love them both. (is that blasphemous to a cat lover?)

    1. Far from it. Growing up, my family always had both a cat and a dog. I gotta say I think I preferred the dogs. Now I'm just too lazy to take care of one. Selfish. In fact, cat-like!
