How Not to Become a Bird:
At CaliCo, working too hard can turn you into a cat.
Valentine, a transmasc waiter working at CaliCo’s cat cafe, knows this. But he’s confident he won’t be affected because while his family are bird-shifters, he’s never managed to turn into a bird. And surely someone who can’t become a bird can’t be turned into a cat, right?
How Not to Become a Bird is a story about dealing with stress, anxiety and the need for validation. It’s also about a cat with pink wings and a very tiny phoenix, so there’s that. Created for OvertimeCats Antholojam.
