Toasted Cake 260: Just One More Kitten GIF by Effie Seiberg

Toasted Cake 260! In which maybe we procrastinate? Just a little?

Jen's final sociology paper was due tomorrow, so she was procrastinating.

This story first appeared in Galaxy's Edge, and a slightly longer version is available to read on Curious Fictions.
