Cat Nap Interruptus

Klancy blew blue-hot flame as he exhaled all the pent up energy in one burst. His power thrilled me, sending vibrations of euphoria spasming through my body. I clung to his slightly smoother underbelly to keep myself grounded as well as safe from the heat of his flame.
When it was over my muscles were sore and I panted as if I had run a marathon. Klancy collapsed, eyes closed, fire lungs emptied. The temperature of the now flame-less air cooled me quickly. I crawled under his foreleg and snuggled up to his heart scales. I could hear it beat, deep and slow. I matched my breaths to it and it calmed me, lulling me to sleep.
A deep growl woke me. I wondered if it were my stomach. Caitians ate many times throughout the day as we were prone to sudden bursts of energy followed by cat-naps, aptly named. However, it was not my stomach, nor a purr. It was Klancy.
I sniffed the air, detecting a musk of human testosterone and sweat. Raiders. I flexed my claws. Klancy tensed around me. We waited to pounce.
No sequels yet. Why not write one?

Oh gawrsh, this is amazing!
Caitians are an anthropomorphic cat alien species my college roommate came up with. In that case it was as a Star Trek RPG species, but I think the Caitians were also from his earlier writing as well. I have asked him for permission to borrow the species; I am fairly sure that it's OK.

Editing is easy. Cat-humans can look differently than he imagined as well, thus making them our own.
