Clueless by HGWells1866 Clueless by HGWells1866
Tracy never did have a large attention span. For an hour and a half, the young girl had been toiling away at her grandmother's sewing machine attempting to fix a tear in her favorite dress. No progress was made in that time. Finally surrendering, Tracy decided to take her frustration out on a nearby ball of yarn which had been taunting her since she began. The ball was surprisingly soft and it's gorgeous hue of light pink captured the girl's attention. Slowly, she began to pass the orb back and forth between her petite hands. Back and forth. Back and forth. Back and forth. Soon, Tracy was lost in the rythm. Then, just as she was about to return to work, it skipped out of her hand and rolled across the room.

Begrudginly, Tracy stood from her seat and followed the single trail of yarn left behind by the ball. However, when she finally bent down to pick it up, she slipped, kicking the ball even further away. Once more, she traced the yarn to its point of origin, and again she tapped the ball just enough to send it back across the room. For some reason, Tracy didn't feel like the second time was accidental. The girl continued to kick the ball back and forth for some time, slowly losing herself to its mesmerizing pattern. Suddenly she heard footsteps upstairs. 

"Why is mom home from the store so soon?" Tracy mumbled to herself, "I couldn't have been fooling around for that long..." Quickly, she scampered up the stairs. Although it was a little tricky scaling the large steps with her paws, she managed. "Gosh, everything feels so much bigger in here..." Her mind trailed off as a soothing aroma caught her nose. She twitched as her ears poked up and tail raised towards the sky. The last thought going through her mind before her transformation was complete ended up being, "Who brought the tuna?"

So did she lose her mind (as in, it faded away,) as she turned into a cat?

Nice story and manip! Shading could use some work, and edges could be improved as well.
