Feline Daily Prompt: Feline Disguise

Tell us about a time when someone had you completely fooled, where the wool was pulled right over your eyes and you got hoodwinked, but good. Was it a humorous experience or one you’d rather forget? What was the outcome?

Sphynx cat

“Do you think that feline found the zip to her fur coat in this hot weather Tabby?”

“No, she is always like that.”

“But in Winter she must freeze.”

“I don’t think so, they have a sort of built in central heating in their bodies and they have a bath every week.”

“You mean like Mrs. Human in water with soap and shampoo.”

“That’s what that sphinx feline told me. She said her human does it to make sure she doesn’t smell.”

“But Tabby, I thought we felines have to smell, like marking our territory.”

“Fluffy, there is a difference between smelling and stinking, you know what I mean.”

“Aha, I see. By the way I havn’t seen that naked cat for some time, do you think she is still alive.”

“I heard that her human moved away.”

“That’s a shame, Mrs. Human won’t have a model for her photos.”

“She has us Fluffy. When I have one of my tiger lookalike days, she always takes a photo.”

“Tabby you always look like a tiger, at least you try to look like a tiger. I havn’t noticed that it has an effect on the other felines in the neighbourhood.”

“I know Fluffy, but as the great feline Bastet assistant Cat Graham said “A cat should never disguise the fact that she/he is a feline. A feline’s body is very special.”

  1. Dear Tabby and Fluffy, I, myself, am colored exactly like the shadow of a big dog. This can be troublesome for humans who aren’t paying attention or who are blind. As for Mindy, she’s just a big hairy dog. Don’t tell her I said that. It would hurt her feelings. Yours forever and ever and ever, Dusty T. Dog

      Tell Mindy that hairy has an aestheic quality and I am sure she will feel confirmed in her appearance. We felines just arrive according to who was involved with our mum, but we have no problems. Nera always maintained she was not fat, but just fluffy but that was her interpretation of the snail problem in her fur. It’s not the looks coun

    • I always liked these cats, but they are very expensive in Switzerland, at least 1,000 Swiss Francs each. I have seen them at cat shows with their kittens. they are a lot of work, having to bathe them weekly but I also find them very sweet. I am surprised that you have them in rescue shelters as I thought they would be something very special and not something that no-one would want.

      • Yes, they are a similar price in the UK (but they can go up to nearly 950 GBP) We don’t get them often but there is an increase of pedigree cats coming into rescue. Persians, Siamese and Bengals are the most common. People often do not think hard enough about the level of care a very long furred or a bald cat may take and find they cannot cope. Also in the UK many more people are having to rent their homes rather than own, and there are very few landlords or estate agencies that will let them keep their pets, so have to be given up despite how much they may be wanted 😦 .
