scented trauma

Image description A cat sits with their tablet to their lap. They smell something, and are taken back to a terrible time with a stricken expression. It is only for a few seconds, and they've dropped their tablet next to them, put their hands to their face in distress, telling themself "I'M NOT THERE ANYMORE!" "I'm okay!" "goddammit, familiar smell"

Author Notes

12th Dec 2020, 8:44 PM Began having flashbacks this year, triggered by smells and tastes.

I think this was the first one that occurred, which made us consider that perhaps it was an one-time occasion. It wasn't, having been confirmed at least two additional times since then.

It made me afraid that we could develop aversions to foods based on this, but luckily for us, these flashbacks are a relatively rare occasion.
