Gavin Elkshire has just submitted a Cat Boat story about Joshua Spassky. thank you, Gavin.
here is Gavin's story:
It is raining.
Today is not a good day.
Morale on The Cat Boat is at an all time low. There is cat piss, cat shit and cat hair everywhere. Somebody should do something about the mess.
Joshua Spassky is tired, weak and irritable. His gums bleed constantly and he can no longer walk upright.
The only good thing about the whole situation is that there is plenty of food. Some of the more dextrous cats have started fishing over the side of the boat. First they built the rods by sellotaping all the pens together then they made the lines out of the string that was hidden behind the Christmas pudding.
Joshua Spassky has fleas. The fleas nip and bite and whisper to each other. Mainly it’s inane nonsense which is almost bearable, but sometimes they talk about their host as if he couldn’t hear them. Sometimes the fleas are cruel and spiteful and make things up about him.
Joshua Spassky is seasick pretty much all the time.
Joshua Spassky doesn’t want to hear that record album again.
Joshua Spassky isn’t enjoying the voyage one little bit.
