The Shell Station

Your paper is lookin’ great, Ma!

Luna on lap as Aliona works at computer.jpg

Fine work, even by a cat’s standards.  So, can I borrow the car, right?

Purr!  Feels really good, but…

Luna experiencing ultimate chin rub.jpg

I really need that car.

Meow.  She wouldn’t give me the keys.

I didn’t think she would.

She doesn’t know, though.

I deserve everything I have coming to me.

I had my last pill this morning.

It was great and all, but, I can’t get anymore.

I’ll probably get the shakes by tonight.

Maybe it’s for the better.

Terry might be able to help.

Hiss.  I don’t think I can trust her though.

Luna lounging on blue blanket looking left with brightly lit eyes.jpg

I didn’t think it would come to this so soon.

Meow.  It might be dangerous.

Well, it’s getting late.

Luna lounging on blue blanket looking far backward to right.jpg

I better get going.

I hope Terry’s willing to even talk to me.

Luna crouched and stalking treat cropped.jpg

She’s totally the type to hold a grudge.

This is familiar.  Yep, that’s where she lives alright.

Luna looking over edge of table to right with one eye a bit narrower.jpg

Do I really want to do this?

Terry?  Terry?  Terry?

Luna shouting over edge of table to right.jpg

HEY TERRY!  Are you there?

Get lost!

It’s Luna!  I need a favor!

By favor, do you mean a bullet to the head?

This is worse than I thought.

I can’t believe it.

I haven’t seen Luna in at least a year, and it’s been a damn good year.

That cat has a lot of nerve coming to my flat after what she pulled.

She thinks nothing is more important than what she wants.

To hell with her.

Now what was I doing that was more important?

Turtle on the move heading slightly right of camera.jpg

Ah, right.  I was doing nothing.

According to Luna, that is more important than whatever she’s here for, so I’ll go back to doing nothing and ignore her.

It doesn’t look like Terry is going to let me in.

Luna turned away looking back to right.jpg

Time for Plan B.

Ya know what I’m in the mood for right now?

Turtle looking to right with blue pills in front.jpg

Did I mention that turquoise is this turtle’s favorite color?


Here’s why.

These things are so potent.  I’m in for a fun evening.

Hey, can I have those please?  I’m out of pills.

And Terry… again, I’m really sorry about leaving you like I did.

You picked the lock again, didn’t you, ya two-timing bastard.

I wasn’t woman enough for you?

Turtle looking far to right with blue pills in front.jpg

But, I look into those eyes and…

I can’t stay angry at you, Luna.  I think I still …

Turtle looking slightly to left with blue pills in front close up.jpg

No.  Not again.  If ever a knife had pierced my shell, it was when you left me, Luna.

Just take them.

And this bag too.  Take everything.

Just don’t come back.

*slurp* That bag of white stuff is pretty good.

Luna looking forward with wide eyes licking nose with tongue.jpg

Maybe I shouldn’t have had the whole thing at once.

Something doesn’t feel right.

Luna close up with mouth slightly ajar.jpg

What’s happening to me?

I feel…

Well, that was totally worth it.  Probably safe to sleep now.

Unless you are comfortable with a cat driving your car, I need you to go away.





And now for Luna’s post-post commentary!


Meow all!

You might be wondering what’s going on with me lately.  You might be legitimately concerned. Rest assured, I don’t actually do any drugs harder than catnip.  I’m just a talented actress.  However, I got myself a publicity agent named Michele, and she says we need to be a little more seedy, so that’s what we’re doing.  Again, it’s show business.

P.S.  Special thanks to Maria for the turtle, who is actually a dude named “Climber”.

  2. The “I feel” pic is a certifiable yoga pose: Sun-saluting Upward Cat ?

  3. A lot of certifiable yoga poses look as if they defy the laws of physics and (human) physiology.


  4. Hahaha! I loved this! Fantastic post! 🙂
