PodCastle Miniature 26: Up the Chimney

By Cat Rambo.
Read by Cian MacMahon.

I should have known better. There we were dozing by the fireside, old Tom and me, and there’s a stranger telling some story of funerals and cats. Old Tom, he leaps up, whiskers abristle. Shouting “Then I’m the King of Cats” and disappearing up the chimney!

Rated G. Contains cats and fairy land.

    I liked this story. I had heard _The King of the Cats_ many times, but this is the first we have heard where he went.

    I would love to hear the adventures of the human trying to get to his faery realm, or home.

    I really loved the short story, but the podcast was horrible. He was talking way too fast, I had to listen to it twice before I actually understood what was going on.

    Had to think about it for a sec to get it. I would not like to eating sardines and having people lick clean ever (not even once.)
