That Jar Life

little-oil-that-jar-life

  • Why is the girl inside the jar?
  • How did she get there?
  • Can she get out? Does she want to?
  • Does she have everything she needs inside the jar?
  • Why is the cat looking at her? Are they communicating? Are they friends?
  • Write in first person. Choose whether you want to write from the girl’s perspective, or the cat’s.
  • Imagine a world where animals keep humans as pets. Would anything be similar to our world as it is? What would be different?

    I think the girls is inside the jar because the cat somehow trapped her in. She could’ve shrunk herself by accident and the cat might have chased her into th jar. Maybe she wants to get out because she wouldn’t want to be trapped in the jar forever and she only has a small amount of food and tea which wouldn’t last her too long.I think the cat is staring at her because he trapped her in and is loooking at what he has done.

    -The girl is inside the jar because she was playing outside and a witch came across in disguise and put a curse on her for tugging her hair to teach her a lesson.
    -She got there by getting minimised and dropped in surreptitiously by the witch.
    -Although it is very lonely with her only friend being the cat, she likes it in there since she doesn’t have to go to school.
    -She has oxygen, tea and biscuits that respawn each time she eats them. Although it is an unhealthy balance, they magically balance her diet out.
    -The cat is also a victim of the witch’s magic which was once her brother. They can communicate by connected minds.
    -Although I may be a cat on the outside, I am not what the eye foresees. I am a human boy just like you, you and you! My appearance may startle you, but I am a cat…human…cu..man…?
