365 Prompt: August 15 2017

The chandelier:

I knew I was going to be in big trouble.

There was no way I could pin this on somebody else.

How was I supposed to know the light fixture wasn't exactly, 'fixed,' as well as I felt it should have been?

How was I to know it was very delicate and clearly not built to withstand my ever-increasing weight?

I thought it would be good exercise, running, jumping, flying through the air…

To land perfectly on top of it.

I was wrong.

More than once my owner had referred to me as, 'Garfield.'

Nope, there was no way I could blame the dog this time.

Only a cat could jump and land on the chandelier.

The chandelier that now lay smashed to pieces on the floor.

I was going to be in big trouble.
