Flash fiction, 100 words

The warm patch of sunlight barely accommodated the tabby cat’s extravagant pose. He sprawled himself out in a giant curve, the white fur of his belly exposed. He lifted his chin, reaching for the last iota of his stretch.

The calico cat sat nearby in the shadows, longing for the sunlight.

“Hey, move over,” the calico said.

“There’s not enough room for both us,” replied the tabby drowsily.

The calico withdrew to the kitchen and leaped noiselessly to the countertop. He carefully nudged a spoon over the edge.

Tabby came running as calico headed for the little patch of sunlight.
