Be ashamed"Mommy! Mommy!" I cry as the explosion wipes off the sea. Mommy's nowhere to be seen; the air is heavy and hot. I can't seem to understandwhat's just happened? In just one second my whole world went off and changed in a way I could never imaginesky, so blue and cloudless up till now, was covered in black ashes, red glow in the north fills me with dread. Everything I want is to run, fly away from here, but first I have to find Mommy.Be ashamed by Iao-Kamirru
I see Her at last: She surfaces so far from me. I start running on the water, I want to fly to Her, but then I see a big wave coming from the north. We always liked the cold shower the waves gave us, so I feel happy for Mommy until I realize the water isn't pure anymorethe wave is dark, red substance on the surface. Blood, I think, paralyzed with fear.
"MOMMYYYY!" I yell, but I can't do anythingthe wave falls onto Her, pushing Her underwater. I hear Her trying to say something, but Her screeches turn into weak gurgle.
Box of Steel"I love you," you said. "And I'll love you forever"--Box of Steel by Iao-Kamirru
That time everything felt so warm and so right.
You told me I was pretty, you told me I was clever,
How beautiful I was and how my fur was so white.
You made me feel the safest any pet could ever feel,
You gave me tasty food and hugged me every day,
I liked to hop with you into your box of steel--
We'd go to a park and at your lap my muzzle I'd lay.
That certain day your box of steel as always opened up
And I hopped in right next to you, I licked your face in glee:
Another trip that was to be, I was happy as a pup,
Completely unaware what you meant to do to me.
We went through webs of roads, but you didn't say a thing,
And knowing this was special, I kept my mouth shut, too.
Suddenly you stepped on breaks, I felt an abrupt sting,
My nose hurt and I turned to you for that magic you could do.
You didn't kiss me, though, you didn't ease the pain.
You pushed me hard, the box of steel went on like a dart--
I yelped in terror, ran after y
I Miss You And I'm SorryI Miss You And I'm Sorry by Iao-Kamirru
I miss your beautiful big eyes
And the way they blinked when you were surprised;
I miss your warm breath on my skin
As you rubbed your nose against my chin;
I miss your cute little snores,
The ones you made with the runny nose;
I miss the way your head would tilt
And how you slowly fell asleep just for it to wilt;
I miss the way you meowed when I woke you up to eat,
The way you lighted up when you got a treat,
I miss your tiny teeny paws
And how they scratched my hands with their small sharp claws,
I miss your furry tummy
And how it hugged my neck as you slept against your mommy,
I miss your ears and tail and all the little things,
But I miss you more than anything.
And I’m sorry, I’m so sorry
For all the times you’d wait,
For leaving you again
And coming back too late.
I’m sorry, ‘cause I loved you,
I loved you all nine lives
And I know how it feels to wait
For someone who just won’t arrive—
And I’m sorry, I’m so sorry
ChamberChamberChamber by Hyena27
The barking became louder as I padded across the yard. Damp grass that smelled of morning dew crunched under my paws as I went. The sharp scent of a stray wafted through the wood fence of the yard as a gust of chilling wind flattened my floppy ears back against my head.
As I neared the fence I heard a soft yelp in excitement and the stir of leaves by the vigorous wagging of a stubby tail.
“Hello,” barked a soft voice.
I leaned forward to be surprised by the touch of a wet nose against my nose. It's owner shyly pulled away and pawed at the ground nervously.
“What do you want,” I growled, the fur on my nape rising at the thought of an unseen intruder before me.
The stray let out a small, pitiful cry and flattened itself onto the ground.
“I don't mean to be a burden,” she murmured, “but I was wondering if you had any food you could spare. I'm really hungry and...”
Even though I could not see her I knew that she was staring right at m
Sir LlamalotOnce upon a time, there was a young llama who dreamed to be a knight in a shining armor. Every night he'd fall asleep with that wish on his mind, and in his sleep he'd gallop ahead of his troops, all covered in beautiful, shiny armor, with a long, powerful sword in his jaws, trampling and slashing the enemies to the ground. The war would be gloriously won and his archers would send a triumphatic fiery arrows to the night sky and they'd glow just like the falling stars, while he'd be carried back to the castle by his faithful dragoons on their white horses; and in the castle there would be a good, old king, and the llama would kneel before him, and then would be told to straighten up and embraced by the strong, metal-clad arms in the gesture of appreciation and thankfulness for saving the mighty kingdom.Sir Llamalot by Iao-Kamirru
Then the llama would wake up and realize he was still stuck on the high meadow with his life revolving around clouds, grass and sleeping. Grazing among his clan mates he'd plan battles

At PAW we want to collect art that propagates the animal rights and welfare. You can submit art showing animal figures will be accepted. Art which consists of animals being hurt will not, unless it condemns such behavior.

We accept all types, genres and media of art.
Athro will not be accepted. We support nature, and anthros aren't real. We do accept fantastic animals, as long as they look natural (e.g. their anatomy is physically possible), as we believe they might've lived once or might evolve in the future.
