Celta Thursday, Cratag gets his Fam, original scene from Heart Change
So he looked at the animals, none of whom had been a threat so he'd dismissed them without truly observing them. There was a beige cat sitting elegantly by D'Marigold's feet in a proud pose, with an interesting triangular face, white muzzle and yellow eyes. Obviously D'Marigold's Fam.
The little girl had an arm around a big cat who was nearly limp in her arms. Two cats already.
Well, cats were more common than dogs. Maybe there would be a fox? He'd heard foxes were good Fams.
There was a fox, aloofly watching from a cube set in a strategically good place for defense. As well as two housefluffs, a grumpy looking wolf, and a black and white cat who gazed at him from upside down eyes, all paws in the air, with a goofy smile.
Cratag stepped toward the fox and as he did so, came within the personal space of the wolf, who growled and warned mentally, Come no closer, warrior.
Cratag was surprised he could hear the beast. Peace, I mean no harm to you or yours. I think only to speak with the fox. Unless you wish...
I am only here for company.
Not quite the truth, Cratag saw a large dressing on the animal's leg. He stepped back and turned toward the fox.
I think the fox is not for you, the wolf snickered.
Cratag pivoted back...and nearly tripped on the goofy cat who'd thumped down from his perch and had run to him. The cat fell over, between Cratag's feet, and he had to settle into his balance or windmill like a fool.
Lying on Cratag's shoes, plump side rounded, the cat gazed up at him with cheerful delight, a little drool escaping his mouth. Greetyou, FamMan.
This scene still makes me smile, especially my lovely (and not quite so goofy) cat, Dingo.
