When the Cat Came Calling, Revisited

It's time to tell the truth about my blog post for COG58, When the Cat Came Calling. And the truth is... it's fiction. I made up the whole story. Well, I guess you could say there were a couple of grains of truth sprinkled in here and there.

Truth #1: My mom didn't like cats, that's true. But I have no idea why.

Truth #2: My grandfather did died of pancreatitis on October 28 but it was October 28 of 1956 not 1935. And he died in a hospital where he'd been treated for the condition, not at home.

That's it. The rest was a product of my imagination. I have to admit, I could have woven a short story around this idea or maybe even more. Once I got into "writing mode" I wanted to run with the story line but I figured that would be a dead give away.

I hope you enjoyed guessing!
