Wire-Haired Werewolf from Rotten
By Mindy Moran
is crawling with creepy creatures. The Wire-haired Werewolf’s head contains one
torn-out eye, one good eye, a carnivorous mind, a bitten-off ear, and a black
stripe down her nose. She loves her four short legs, despite the fact that they
make her clumsy. Her lithe body would have been graceful, if she didn’t have
such short legs, but she doesn’t care, she loves being as rotten-looking as
possible. The Wire-haired Werewolf’s long fur is so long that her short legs
keep on tripping over it.
Wire-hair likes to steal food from others, especially hard-working ones. When they don’t have any food she just eats them! She loves to climb trees, though her short legs and long fur makes it hard. Very near the long, long list of what she hates is cats. She doesn’t like them because instead of charging after prey like she does, they stalk silently.
The Wire-haired Werewolf is a horrible, predatory carnivore. Her favorite food is caribou or reindeer. She likes them because they’re hard to find and powerful. What she hates is fish, she’ll eat anything but it. Wire-hair hates fish because the (1) are slimy, (2) live in water, which she loathes, (3) because they have scales instead of fur or feather, (4) get water all over her when they thrash. I could go on and on…
A special thing that she can do is make anything wash up on the shore without being poisoned. She does this because sometimes she’s just not in the mood for fresh monster, and really in the mood for real prey. In the picture, The Wire-haired Werewolf has washed up a mouse and some nuts. When she does this, she waits to “invite it over for dinner” until it has finished the nuts. Wire-hair wishes you bad luck and a full night of nightmares. I think she likes you.
