CatsCast 14 Preview: A Feline Familiar

This month’s CatsCast is A Feline Familiar by Rayne Hall. It’s available on the Escape Artists Premium Content feed on Patreon for patrons at the Premium Content level or above; it’s also in our premium content repository for those who donate five dollars a month by any means. We’ll be back here in the free feed next month. In the meantime, here’s a sample of what’s playing over on Patreon.

November wind rattles the windows and rain gusts against the panes. The cats have withdrawn to the kennel’s heated indoor section and curled up in their cosy donut beds. Some doze with heads on paws, others watch my fingers dance across the keyboard, ears tilted forward as they listen to the rhythmic clack-clack-clack.

Several stare intently at the door, waiting.

They seem to know it’s a Saturday, the day when the Feline Familiars sanctuary opens its doors, and potential adopters come in, wizards in search of a magickal assistant and pet.

The first arrival, alas, has not come to adopt one of my charges. She places a cat carrier on the rickety table by the door, shakes the raindrops from her purple mane and juts her chin. “Ms Landen, this cat is no good.”

Read (or listen to) the rest on Patreon.
