Looking out my back door

Look out your back window or door — describe what you see, as if you were trying to convey the scene to someone from another country or planet.


“Do we have a back door Tabby?”

“No, we just have an opening where we can disappear outside.”

“Then how can I describe what I see, Oh I forgot I don’t see.”

“Then just paw about what you smell.”

“I don’t have the time to paw all about that.”

“It is quite easy Fluffy. We have places where we can sleep, hunt and …..

“Oh, I know Tabby, where I can spray and mark our territory.”

“Fluffy I am not sure if that would be an appetising subject for a prompt.”

“I even have a spraying action photo.”

“Yes, Fluffy, I can see it, but that is when you had the pampas grass to spray. Now you just spray the flowers and plants and Mrs. Human is not very happy about that.”

“Oh, do you think I should spray things in our home. Mr. and Mrs. Human do.”

“Fluffy that is a human thing. They have a room and we have the great outdoors, or if it is raining we have our recycling tray.”

“Funny habits humans have. I prefer our method, although when Mr. and Mrs. Human are not using their spraying room, it has some nice fresh water.”

“Fluffy I think we have losing the subject. The daily prompt humans want to know what we have outside conveying it to someone from another country or planet.”

“You mean like the eternal corn chambers.”

“Something like that. We would tell the that the mice hide from the felines and we have to sniff them out. We have birds to eat now and again if we catch them and snails are to be avoided because they are slimy and stick in our fur. There are also tics which like to drink our blood.”

“Err Tabby, I don’t think humans like to hear about that.”

“Then they shouldn’t bring such stupid daily feline prompts.”

“Perhaps they are mainly for humans.”

“Fluffy, who were worshipped as gods?”

“You mean the prompts should be reserved for felines.”

“Of course.”

  1. Dear Tabby and Fluffy, That spraying thing is great. I do it every morning on our front sidewalk so that all the dogs coming by know this is MY house and she’s MY human. A big boxer just came by with his people and I barked ferociously and pretended I might jump the fence any minute. I wouldn’t, of course, but it is not right to allow other creatures to think this property could be theres. Keep spraying, Fluffy. Yours in spray solidarity forever, Dusty T. Dog

    • Of course we do, although perhaps just green and brown (says Mrs. Human after reading all about it in the computer). In the words of Lao Tzu Kat – The key to feline growth is the introduction of higher dimensions or consciousness into our feline awareness, meaning don’t trust anyone or anything.


  2. Ahhh At last a place for my for con-fur-sation therapy! . So good to hear their conversation. We have three who turn into elephants at night. Pawsing for thanks.
