Jane Jago’s Daily Drabble – One Hundred and Seventy-Eight

At Christmas, Dad played a trick on the cat. He fed her a chocolate with mustard in the middle. She was very sick. Mom was cross. “Never piss off a cat,” she said.

Dad laughed.

August, and we were packing for a family trip to Florida. Dad was in a good mood, fooling around with my baby sister and kissing Mom on the mouth. Then he tripped over the cat. Broke his hip and his knee. We left him in hospital and got on the plane.

Mom looked at me and winked.

“Never piss off a cat. They don’t forget.”
