Daily Feline Prompt: We are not copycats

Publish a post in the style of a favorite author/blogger or photographer.

Nera, begging

“What’s a copy cat Tabby.”

“That’s a human problem, like when they copy what the other human does.”

“Oh, I see, luckily we felines do not have that problem.”

“Of course not Fluffy. We do our own thing. If I mark my territory, no other feline will dare to mark in the same place. It is a matter of honour.”

“Exactly Tabby, it is a matter of respect, no matter how much you might like the other marking feline.”

“Fluffy, you have something wrong there. We only like I, me and myself, all others are not important and we do not like any other feline.”

“You mean you do not like me.”

“Of course not Fluffy, I just indulge you. As long as I am the boss, it makes not difference. I am the alpha feline around here. What I meow is the law.”

“It used to be Nera that told us what to do.”

“Nera is no longer here, but living her 10th life in the Eternal Corn Chambers, although now and again she might give us some advice.”

“You mean when she visits all transparent with a golden glow and tells us what to do.”

“Yes, that is when we do things in Nera style. Fluffy stop trying to sit on your back leg and waving your paws in the air like a human.”

“But Nera used to do that.”

“I know that was her speciality. All felines have something special. I can open the sliding door in the kitchen for example.”

“What’s my speciality Tabby.”

“That is fairly obvious. You have dreadlocks on top of your head and leave a path of white fur wherever you walk. I suppose being a Selkirk Rex is something special, there are not many of them, but don’t let it go to your whiskers if you have any. Yes, that is also a speciality, you constantly loose your whiskers and when they remain they look like a corkscrew.”

“Oh, Tabby, I also have something special. I am so glad. Then I don’t have to visit a feline psychiatrist for my inferiority complex.”

“Of course not Fluffy, felines do not have inferiority complexes. don’t forget, we were worshipped as gods in the old country.”

  1. Of the many prompts they published that seem totally silly, this one gets some kind of prize. I love that they seem to be on a roll, picking and choosing to rerun all the really dumbest prompts from the DP archives. Or maybe we just don’t remember how bad they were? Is that possible? That they were ALL this bad?

  2. Dear Fluffy and Tabby, Wow, this is another way felines and canines differ. We like to learn from each other so that when we are in our pack we know our places and our jobs. Our human went to the animal shelter today and found a puppy. I guess it’s going to be a very big dog, something called a Great Pyrenees. She said that when the puppy comes, I must teach her everything I learned at obedience school. My human says the puppy is smart and meek and I will like her. Mindy won’t pay any attention. I wonder if that makes her a cat? I’ll let you know how it goes if the puppy moves in. I think her name will be Snowball. Yours forever and forever Dusty T. Dog
