Don’t Fear The Reaper

Unless your name is Fluffy

“Come on, Mick. We gotta move fast. Fluffy will be home from the vet soon.”

“I’m trying, Keith. There must be fifty jars of spices up here. Got it. Carolina Reaper. The world’s hottest chili pepper, rated at 1,569,000 Scoville Heat Units.”

“Excellent. Dump the whole jar on his food.”

Based on the Centina Pentina prompt: Write a 50-word story that’s about mice playing while the cat’s not around.
