Today was the day he was dreading. He knew they were going to be extremely busy, and quite frankly he wanted to call out seeing as he was already late. His thoughts were briefly distracted by his black tabby, quietly pawing at his legs, ready for its breakfast. He made sure to fill up its bowl before he dashed out the door, returning twice to grab whatever he forgot the first few times. And he was off.

He breathed a sigh of relief as the last customer left. It had been the best sales day of the year, and they were obviously going to celebrate. He had been contemplating going on home, but he needed to unwind too. He had no serious obligations the next day, so he could stay out as late as he wanted. So when they asked, he happily agreed to go with them.

He couldn’t open his eyes. He was barely conscious as it was. He slapped lazily around until he managed to shut the alarm off, before he rolled onto his stomach and buried his face in his pillow. The door creaked as his black tabby walked in and jumped onto his back, where it curled up close to his head. The hot breath in his ear lulled him back to sleep.

The doorbell continued to ring. He crawled out of bed and made his way to the front door. It was his next door neighbor, a kind woman in her late seventies, who still worked. She was in her business suit, holding a trash bag. “Oh did I wake you up? I thought you were usually up by now.” “I usually am.” He said groggily. “But they let me have today off.” “Well I hate to come bearing such bad news so early in the morning,” She said, patting his hand, “but I ran over your dear tabby last night when I got home. I came straight over to tell you but you weren’t home.” He stared at her for a few seconds, before their silence was broken by its footsteps.

      The cat was a ghost instead of horror its more like a trajec story. It happens to many people, my dog was poisoned, i didn’t know at the time but before I went to bed it came into my room and layed at my feel, my mom told me that it ‘ran away’ the night before, run away means killed in our family

    I liked it, but I don’t understand how it’s rightly creepy. The old lady could’ve just hit another black cat, and and thought it was his.

    I normally try not to do this, but it feels just so appropriate in this case.

    BUT WHO WAS HOT BREATH?

    This story’s been done before, hasn’t it? Awakening was something like this. “Oh, let me hug my blanket nice and close. Yeah, that’s nice. Oh wait! My blanket’s on the floor. Oh sh-”

    Don’t Worry About It was that way, too. “I’m being hugged by my wife. Oh that’s not my wife! Oh sh-”

    Then there was that story with the dog. “I’m patting my doggy’s head cuz it makes me feel better. Gotta go to the bathroom. Oh! Here’s my dog’s corpse. OH SH-”

    Besides, if the thing didn’t eat him while it was cozied up to his neck, why would it do it now? It was just a stray cat in his apartment, that’s not creepypasta.

    7/10. It was still alright.

    LOLWUT? No seriously, what?! This is a terrible pasta… First 2 paragraphs are completely irrelevant. So is the cat a ghost, a zombie-cat, or just a badly wounded cat who crawled back in and licked his ear while bleeding all over and making a mess? The unoriginal title made me not expect much but this was just… dumb

    Not well written at all nor creepy. It jumps around too much and the ending is very poor.

    Wow. Really? That was it? It’s like somebody took “Who was phone,” added “Humans have tongues too,” blended them liberally, and strained any actual creepiness out of it until it had the taste and consistency of grits.

    You can only re-boil old pasta so many times before it goes to mush. 2/10, and I usually like /everything,/ so…

    A poor effort resulting in a poor story. It all this “he saw him/her/it and then was dolt that she/he/it was dead.”
    I think someone should filter out submissions that make no attempt to deviate from widespread templates.
    Lame!
