Daily Feline Post: Enough does not exist in meow

When was the last time you were ready to throw in the proverbial towel? Did you end up letting go, or decided to fight on anyway?

Tabby in the bath

“Where’s the towel Mrs. Human? I am waiting in the bath.”

“What do you need a towel for, I thought felines do not do baths and towels.”

“We don’t, but it would be fun to have a towel to play with: pulling all those threads with my claws.”

“That is not how it is meant Tabby. If we throw in the towel, we give up.”

“Mrs. Human, “Give up” does not exist in meow. We carry on. Of course it might be that the opponent is winning then we run away, especially if it is a dog. Yes, definitely if it is a dog.”

“But that is giving up.”

“No, it is not giving up, it is being clever and not wanting to lose one of your nine lives.”

“But you sometimes run away when you have a fight with Roschti, the ginger cat next door.”

“That is something different. I might have an urgent mission to accomplish indoors and have to leave when things get exciting. Or it might be that Roschti decides to give up.”

“I don’t think so, Roschti never seems to be give up and I see you running away from him and Roschti chasing you.”

“You have it all wrong, Mrs. Human. I tell Roschti that if he is fast enough, he might be able to wedge his way in the cat flap after me and there will be a portion of tuna fish for him as well.”

“Are you sure?”

“Of course. Although sometimes I have to get away from him as I need time to meditate and think things over.”

“Think things over?”

“Shall I fight back a feline that is double my size, with very sharp claws, and a reputation for being the King of the neighbouring territories, or shall I surrender, give up and run for my life.”

“Throwing in the towel.”

“No, making a sensible decision.”
