|Reviews for Your Cat Is Dead|
| Julietish chapter 1 . 8/31/2014
Hi! It's Juliet from A Drop of Romeo. When your story was featured on ADoR, a judge wrote this review for it: Sometimes people need an excuse to call an ex-boyfriend. Maybe a forgotten article of clothing, maybe a new . For one girl, this excuse happens to be the unpleasant remains of their shared cat, Hunter S. Thompson, laying in the middle of the road - not exactly the most agreeable start.
The writer’s voice is spot on, creating mood and back-story with a light and grey touch, and encapsulating the narrators dry sense of humour and matter-of-fact point of view. I really enjoyed reading this story; it was immersive and detailed, building empathy with the characters without giving unnecessary, potentially distracting detail.
The premise is original and engaging, with the dead cat becoming more than a pet; rather, it is a symbol of their relationship as it was, and as it is today. The plot is simple, but the emotional intricacies and shared past of the two former-lovers are beautifully and fully formed.
I cannot recommend this story highly enough; it is a really wonderful example of impeccable style and concise and deceptively restrained writing.

I truly did enjoy this story. The writing was superb, loved the style and the slight humor mixed in as well. Also. I love the conflict of the story as well. How the whole thing just planned out. The ending, definitely didn't expect that at all. Quite a nice surprise. I just loved Hunter, never met a cat like that in my life. Very entertaining.

I'm reading your stories and really liking them so far. I think that at times I wish for more detail, but then again, I've been searching a long time for a story that focuses on how a couple works together. This one is really creative and almost... realistic? And endearing. Anyway, I figured that since I've read at least three of your one shots so far, I might as well declare you one of my favorite authors and let you know how much I appreciate your work. I'm excited to keep going down the list, so thank you, and merry Christmas. (Happy Kwanzaa, feliz ramadan, and superb Hanukkah/chanukah) YG

Wow, I never knew pets could tear people apart. Though it felt slightly rushed towards the end, it was a gret one shot:)

let me make this clear: no cats were harmed in the making of this story, right? Lol but aside from that, the story was really cute! Black cats have a special place in my heart :3

I've been reading your FP stream for ages. I'm so glad you're updating again and plan on updating more. When I got an alert about this story I was so happy! It's truly great. I laughed so hard when I read the description of your protagonist, because I happen to be sporting the auburn hair lately and have the same eye color. You wouldn't happen to have the auburn hair and hazel eyes too, would you?
I love how unique and endearing this story is. It features a cat but in a completely different context. It has a real Halloween vibe. Reading it that time of the month, it was perfectly seasonal.
Hope you do keep updating.
