    Quite possible, Scher. And as to Psycho Kitty's gender - unknown - so far nobody has been brave enough to check.

    Believe it or not this Kitty is possessed! I like Cookie Monster better.

    Psycho Kitty is an island.

    Also, I'm pretty sure Psycho Kitty is a practitioner of Santeria, or Voodoo, or some danged thing, and is considering curses upon Snowqueen's head.

    Yes, I saw it coming as I’ve been having nightmares since then.

    Well then, a good night’s sleep being the cornerstone of any wellness program, El Sancho has become concerned for snowqueen’s health.



    So I had one of the perros at the Casa de Sancho deal with Psycho Kitty. And Daisy Doodle Dog (that’s really her name) says kitties are tasty.

    We can all sleep a little easier now.

    Would it bother anyone if I abstained? They are all great reads in their own individual way, but I am torn about the nature of literary competitions involving a prize. I feel it causes a certain unspoken heartbreak for those who receive nary an acknowledgement of their work and genius.

    I'm sorry that I can't participate.

    It's absolutely fine, Mystyry; however, I cannot say that I share your sentiment regarding these competitions. It is a great opportunity to offer some kind of reward and I do believe everyone's contribution has been acknowledged.

    As always, more votes needed!
