Day #4 Writing Challenge – 365 Creative Writing Prompts

Inspired by the Prompt Me With Your Best Shot I found a great prompt for tonight’s challenge

I opted for this:

12. Greeting: Write a story or poem that starts with the word “hello”.


Hello, you’ve reached the voicemail of “MEW MEW MEW MEW”, if you’re new to this service please listen to the following options, otherwise key in the number you wish to connect to.

(I wait for the speaker to continue)

For cat food replenishment general queries press 1

For sending an apology due to litter tray being dirty for too long press 2

For admitting you were wrong about the cats unable to catch the spider press 3

For forgetting to say hello to the cats when you got back home press 4

For ignoring their middle of the night cries press 5

For disturbing their sleep for selfish reasons such as wanting a cuddle press 6

For shouting at them for throwing up fur balls on the rug press 7

For catching them washing their paws in your glass of water and as a result of your screaming they spilt it all down themselves causing extra cleaning hassle when they wanted to go and kill the wood pigeon instead press 8

For not smiling at them press 9

For smiling too much press 0

Or if you wish to speak with one of the operators please be aware “MEW MEW MEW MEW” does not tolerate the above antics so any feelings of guilt and hopelessness you have is perfectly acceptable and makes them happy.  Please go and beg them for forgiveness.

(I will chance it and speak with an operator)

Connecting to an operator, you are in position 3.

(3? – I look over to the front room where my husband and 2 children are all on phones, my husband is pleading down the phone, I hear the words “I’m clumsy”, “It was all my fault” and “I will do whatever you want” and decide to hang up and decide to give them an apologetic supply of biscuits next time I see them, I just wanted to know where they are!).


Some of the above suggestions have happened (as a cat owner, who doesn’t go through this?) and although the prompt may be putting my 2 cats in a position of incredible power and potential negativity I love, respect and adore them to bits.  Love you Spud and Rodney.
