I felt so sad for Tittles!
I also imagined his feather duster which made me feel guilty to laugh!

I really loved this little story, but I felt sorry for both you and Tittles! What an experience. You kept my interest very well!

A sad tail! Cute story, Barb.

You told it so well. A true cat lover can picture every part of this wonderful description. I loved the vision of the cat on a magic carpet. Very funny and sad at the same time. I enjoyed every bit.
Great title for this humorous but sad tale. The magic carpet description was great!

Might want to restructure the opening paragraph a bit so it doesn't seem too much like a lecture. Just my thought.

Good job!

Poor Tittles! I can really relate to this. I was holding one of our cats a couple of months ago, and when she scratched my arm, I let go of her. She fell on her tail and injured it (boy, did I feel rotten!)... but fortunately, the X-ray revealed that it was just dislocated. The vet was able to put it right, but I was shocked to learn that a broken tail has to be amputated. Thanks for sharing your experience with us. I hope your kitty is feeling better now!

This writing is just too good not to be up the line in higher categories. You have terrific talent for grabbing your reader and keeping her holding her breath until all is resolved. (But, poor kitty, losing her crowning glory. I can just imagine how sad that was for all concerned!)

Now, I shall have to read more of your stories!
