Prompt: Precious


Nothing’s more precious than a baby kitten.

A few years ago, that would have been pure sentimentality, but things have changed. There aren’t a lot of them around now.

It’s a simple procedure – cures all known diseases, and drastically increases life expectancy – some careless journalists even threw around the word "immortality."

The real trick is to harvest just enough blood, so the kittens survive to maturity. But tell that to the people in line to live forever.

Oh, sure, there’s a lot of money in ranching. High demand and low supply.

Sir, I don’t think I like what you’re implying.
