2nd Annual #50PRECIOUSWORDS Writing Challenge - Meowcus Welby, D.V.M.

Vivian Kirkfield has brought back her 50 Precious Words writing challenge, and boy is it a challenge! The rules are as follows: Write a story appropriate for kids ages 12 or under, using only 50 words…they can all be different words, or you can use some of them over and over…just as long as the total word count of the story is 50 or less. The title does not count towards the word limit. When I heard about this year's contest, I just happen to see a picture of a cat dressed as a doctor immediately afterwards. From there, this little story came to life. I hope you enjoy it.


Meowcus Welby, D.V.M.
(47 words)

“Mr. Furrypants, I have the results of your cat scan and it shows hairballs in your tummy.”

“You’ve got to be kitten me, Doc. What can I do?”

“I’ll give you a purrscription for catnip.”

“Will I need to see a purrgeon?”

“No. You’ll be feline.”

“Pawsome!”

  2. This had me laughing. There's nothing I like better than clever puns, except maybe bad puns. Thank-you.
