My Sister's Cat

by Bill Schott

I was sitting in my sister’s home in Fairbanks, Alaska. I’d arrived from Michigan, looking for a job at the University of Alaska.

Muriel’s cat sat next to me on the sofa. I offered my hand for it to rub, but it sank a claw into my finger and quickly ripped open a one inch gash. 

While I shouted and cursed, my sister laughed.

“He’s so territorial.” 

Later, after I had stopped the bleeding, I was shown my bed. On the pillow sat the cat.

Having just left the Marines, I knew I could survive a night on the couch.
