    Since docking was made illegal, the curved-tail (ex-Manx) cats had really difficulty browsing the poster-stalls of Montmartre side-by-side.

    If the television commercial fails we can always try this I suppose.

    The new, budget saving, A&E cat scans left much to be desired.

    I really enjoyed your June comp entry, taking us into the world of pirates, and the enmity between the narrator and Mad Dog. Great build up of tension. I’d love to know how it pans out.

    A very nice vignette. I was slightly thrown by the 'visions' at the start - couldn't see how it fitted with the rest of the piece - but having gone back to re-read I see it's an extract from something longer, so it presumably links back or ahead to something major. Cold Chisel is a great band name, by the way.

    Your comp entry this month is a bit real. "The CD played on", sort of captures the mood perfectly.

    Just finished Little Rabbit. Thought it was wonderful. Any more in the series?

    Great sense of the relationship between the two characters in your comp entry Barb, and a twist on the nature of help. Intriguing

    An interesting take, Barb: someone wanting to be rescued. Beautifully done, with lots of pathos and totally believable characters.

    I love the tension and emotion bubbling under the surface in your comp entry.

    Love the 'smell of old pennies' description; it is exactly right and somehow manages to convey a lot of what follows. Great entry.
