Fluffy the Cat

Judy and John – Part 7 – The Newborn

– by Teresa Smeigh Dec 2015

Joan was racing behind the ambulance trying to keep up. Just then Fluffy, Judy’s cat, jumped in Joan’s lap. Joan swerved, hit a piece of ice and slid over the road and crashed into the ambulance which came to a halt.

The toy dog they had gotten for the new baby came flying into the front seat too. Where had Fluffy been all this time? She saw him slide through a small hole beside the seat and into the trunk.

Fluffy had pulled the little stuffed dog into the back seat and then jumped into Joan’s lap looking for Judy. She smelled her and the new baby. She was disturbed and wanted to assert her ownership of Judy.

John came running back and said, “The ambulance is out of service. How about the car?”

“Hurry John, his breathing is slowing down,” Judy screamed, newly revived and found they had been in an accident.

Joan’s car was alright so everyone moved back into it. Joan, Judy who was cuddling her baby for now and the EMT who was working on the baby’s breathing were in the front seat and the other technician, the driver, and John sat in the back.

Joan took off and sped down the road paying more attention to the ice slicks. They arrived at the hospital emergency room and out of the banged up car come a recently pregnant mother, her mother holding her up and the EMT holding the baby now.

Followed by the father, the ambulance driver, and Fluffy the cat dragging the little stuffed dog in its mouth.

They were rushing in and wondered why all the laughter. They hadn’t seen the cat trailing behind.


Constructive Criticism is appreciated as always.

About Tessa

My name is Tessa Dean and I am an author and blogger. My writing styles vary and I love writing using prompts. I am also writing my first book, a Memoir entitled "Government Property - A Memoir of a Military Wife".  This is being published on the blog rather than the traditional way. I am putting up chapters as I go along. I keep my blog filled with useful content, stories, and poems. Plenty to keep you busy. I have also been interviewed by blogs and had other posts published on many different blogs. I also wrote a series of articles on Bipolar Disorder for IBPF (International Bipolar Foundation). I am in my 60’s and disabled which allows me plenty of time to write to my heart’s content. I live in southern New Jersey and have 3 children and 5 grandchildren. My oldest grandchild is a Sargent in the United States Marine Corps.

      Thank you. I was going to go another way with my story, but it had to be humorous and use 3 of a bunch of words so I had to change my story line. This isn’t easy to do, but fun.


  2. I enjoyed your chapter very much. I could see the picture clearly in my mind(very descriptive as they say) The idea of Fluffy pulling along the stuffed dog! Excellent
