FFfPP — Are You Sure?

“Has anybody here seen my pussy?” Eleanor asked the group of seniors sitting around the community room at the senior center. Several of the men in the room started to chuckle. “Shut up you old fools,” Eleanor chided. “My cat. I’m asking about my cat. She’s white with green eyes and a pink nose.”

Marge raised her hand. “Eleanor, I saw you kitty a few minutes ago. She was peering at me from the stone wall next to the rear driveway.”

“Are you sure it was Princess?” Eleanor asked.

“Sure as you were born, “Marge said.

Eleanor ran out of the room and headed out to the rear driveway. A few minutes later Eleanor reentered the community room with her Princess in her arms. Eleanor had a wry smile on her face. She looked at the old men who were chuckling earlier and said, “Now do any one of you old fools want to pet my pussy?”
