Writer's Workshop: If Pets Could Talk

Mama Kat at Mama's Losin' It does this every Tuesday/Thursday and I thought I'd jump in this week. The basic idea is to write on a prompt or two , post it on Thursday (today), then read other inspired posts! Simple? I think so. Fun? Of course.

I, because I don't know how to shut up, am writing on two prompts. Raise your hand if you're surprised. That's what I thought. Now let's get to it. :]

If your pet could talk, what would you want to know?
Uhm, A LOT. Do animals have religions or anything sort of belief in an after-life? Can animals communicate across species? As in: cat to fish, lion to gazelle, etc. If so, do predators warn their pray that they're about to die? Do they apologize? To my cat: Do you REALLY have nine lives? How do you feel about the fact that I'm pretty sure you're down to about 6 now? To my dog: What on earth is fun about fetch? Honestly. What did the guy that broke into our house that time when I was like 12 look like?

If you could only focus on three things in life and pursue them fully, leaving everything else, what would they be and why?
The title of this blog -- Life, Liberty, and Happiness. Life defined in this sense as a family -- finding someone to love and have kids with someday. Liberty: Devote my time to a group like International Justice Missions and free slaves around the world. Happiness: Writing. I would devote any time that wasn't spent on my kids and with IJM writing for the rest of my life. :]

How would you reply to these questions?

Also -- a little shout out to my cousin Jackie. Today is her 24th birthday! :]


  1. great topics! and lol - yeah, wow i'd love to sit down with my cats for a good chat!!!

  2. I don't get the allure of fetch either. My dog can play for an hour and never tire of it. Seriously, are dogs really that stupid?

  3. Do animals have religion?? I can honestly say I've never considered that!


Commenting? How lovely. Please try not to talk about dead cats.
