Writer’s Workshop: A Lost Kitten Prank

2.) Tell us about a prank someone played on you or vice versa.

There is a short trail near our house and when I saw my daughters exploring the 200 square feet of wild life with friends I decided it was the perfect opportunity to prank them.

It’s not unusual to see rabbits and Lord knows we’ve found our fair share of stray cats in this neighborhood, not to mention the raccoons…it’s practically a wildlife refuge.

I crouched down behind a bush and made the tiniest, sweetest sounding kitten mew.

It’s the kitten mew I’ve been perfecting my entire life.

I let out my first desperate cry, “mew!”

And it worked instantly.

Maile was the first, “Did you guys hear that!?!”

And then again, “MEW!”

I was adorable. And obviously missing my mother. A sad kitten…needing help.

“Mew! Mew!”

“A kitten you guys!!”

I heard them scurrying towards me, the rustling of the leaves on the trail, “MEW!”

And for a moment I actually wished there was a lost kitten, the look of concern and hope on those sweet little faces made me feel a little terrible about my prank, but I was in too deep.

I couldn’t turn myself into a kitten so I did the next best thing, “RAWR!!!!”

The kitten turned into a monster/mother hiding in the bushes and the girls squealed and ran away.

My prank was a success!

But now I want a kitten.

And I think they hate me a little.

Now it’s your turn!

    I think getting a kitten will make up for the prank pulled! And, it’s good you can have fun with your kids. One day they will look back on this, laugh, and appreciate how fun you were!

    I can’t tell you how many pranks were pulled in my house growing up. It makes for a great laughing fest when we all get together! So… have fun and prank on!

    Mean! Funny!

    (I am incredibly impressed by their restraint in not punching you before running away. Hitting is always my knee-jerk response when I’m startled like that.)

    Hey there! Would you mind if I share your blog with my facebook group?
    There’s a lot of folks that I think would really appreciate your content.
    Please let me know. Thank you

    That’s too funny! A little mean but still funny. I don’t think that prank would have worked so well on anyone but little girls. Of course, now you are hankering for a kitten…… backfire?

    killer headline? I mean, I don’t wish to tell you
    how to run your blog, but what if you added a title that grabbed folk’s
    attention? I mean Writer
