bad pregnancy outcome, #MicroFiction
Why do witches have black cats? No, it’s not because we wear black ourselves and we prefer a cat who sheds black hair.
It’s because people are prejudiced against black cats, just as they are against us. We are blamed for the random misfortune, the overheard secret, the unfortunate miscarriage. We have a familiar bond that only outcasts can share.
Also, in my case, Midnight is all they had left at the shelter. You know?—he hardly sheds at all.
Consider this a friendly, local pub. Make yourself at home, bring your friends, have a good time! Meet new people, have a laugh, enjoy the ambience, and the Oxford commas.
