A black kitten pressures herself to be cute
Halloween wants to be cute.

She tried having an energetic smile,
But she didn't have the right teeth.
She has pointy cat teeth,
Not perfectly straight human teeth,
So, when she smiles like a human girl,
Her smile is more of a grimace.

She then tried to develop a sharp sense of style,
But that failed as well.
None of the stores she shopped at
Had anything she like
In a size extra extra extra extra small.

She then tried to shape her sharp, lidded cat eyes
Into cuter, softer, droopier ones.
However, no matter how hard she tried-
Stretching her eyelids into shape
And practicing making faces in the mirror-
Her eyes retained their sharp, lidded shape.

She then decided to change her hairstyle
To beautiful, long black hair.
Her short fur would only grow that long,
So she resolved to buy a wig.
Sadly, there were none
That would fit on her tiny head.

She then tried to tone her butt
Until it was cute and shapely.
Unfortunately, the exercises she chose
Were for humans, not for cats
And her butt ended up looking weird.
Nonetheless, she was mortified with the results.

She then tried to study various subjects
To develop overflowing intelligence.
She had not realized, though,
That, as a cat,
She could not read English.
She gave up instantly.

She then considered getting breast augmentations,
But then she scrapped that idea
Since she would look ridiculous with breasts.
Besides, they didn't make breast implants
Small enough for a cat her size, anyway.

She then tried to make her cheeks look soft
By applying makeup to them.
She gave up immediately after, though,
Because she couldn't find a shade of blush
That would show up on her black fur.

She then sat on her chair
In the office she resided in,
Doing nothing but feeling forlorn.

However, a few moments later,
A young woman sat down to pet her
And she said to Halloween,
"You are cute."

Halloween had done it.
She had become cute.
