""Beneath the pressure of torments such as these, the feeble remnant of the good within me succumbed. Evil thoughts became my sole intimates-the darkest and most evil of thoughts.""

Dear Diary - Tuesday, July 5, 2011

What a fang-tasticlly delicious Fourth of July!  

First, I celebrated our freedom by sinking my teeth into some fresh steamed Florida Key West pink shrimp.

Then I followed it up with the catch of the of the day: 
GROUPER!  It was the cat's meow!

I have to say though, after devouring all that seafood I was thirsty!

Then I nestled down for a nap before the night came alive. From my superior feline perspective I find it hard to understand why humans feel it necessary to celebrate with such disturbing noise. Isn't it enough the only superior being to me celebrates by opening the sky with tears of joy and makes me run in fear when it stomps its feet! 

T.K. Millin said we have lots to do this week, now that her niece has gone back home (I hate to admit it, but I already miss her). Here is what I have on my TO Claw At List for this week: revise two chapters in Summertime Chills, write blog post for T.K.'s blog, The Unknown Author (found here) and write this week’s Friday Flash Fiction. So it looks like I’m going to have a pawsitively busy week, but since I am a feline ghost writer, I wouldn’t want it any other way.

Just found out this week’s theme for Friday’s Flash is Lighthouses and I’m already twirling a spooky tale around inside my superior brain. So far it’s enough to make any cat tail twitch! 

Fang-fully yours,

Efi Loo
The Cat Vamp


  1. Let me see: lighthouses are close to water which are where fish, shrimp, lobsters, crabs, and other goodies are found. Efi Loo should have no problem with a story.

    Note: if Blaze arrives, do not serve him scallops as he will turn many wondrous shades of sick and add greenish/blue upchuck to the carpet. The other items mentioned above are fine.

    While Efi Loo is doing all this work, what is T.K. going to be doing?


  2. Blaze, not to worry, T.K. has nothing but hardwood floors and tile throughout the house,so go ahead, imitate The Exorcist!
    I know T.K. makes me work all day for tuna while she does nothing but swim back and forth in the pool. She says she's working out, but I know better...
