Boo: The Scaredy Halloweenie Cat

Boo, the little black cat, poked her head around the corner of the barn. The night was dark and spooky. Winds howled.  The moon hid behind some clouds.

Boo trembled.

“Hissss”, said the snake in the yard.

Boo tiptoed forward. It was just a garden hose spitting water.

“Caw, caw,” cackled from the top of a tree. A dark shape swooped down.

Boo trembled.

Swoosh. Something flew past, scooping up a treat to eat.  It was only a bird.

Boo trembled, as she dashed into the house.

“Boo!” Emilie said, as she picked her up. “Boo! My little scaredy halloweenie cat!”


And that was my entry for a fun Halloween writing contest. 100 words (Yes, or 101) and making perfect use of the words cackle (or some other variation) black cat and spooky.

    I liked the fact that the cat’s name was Boo. That made it so spooky and fun. I liked this. It was a very good story. Thanks for sharing.

  6. Like your story…poor Boo.. 🙂

  7. Aw! Poor scaredy Boo! I’m glad she made it safely to Emilie’s arms! Hoses and birds can be quite frightening to a little kitty! I’m glad you entered the contest, Deb, and glad to meet you! 🙂 Thanks so much for joining in the fun!

  15. Hello Deb…so lovely to meet you via Susanna’s awesome contest! Love your entry…very cute story…and so true that hoses and other familiar items can become very scary at night.:) Especially on Halloween!

  16. If Emilie has to get rid of Boo for some reason (I don’t know, maybe an allergy?) I’ll take her!
