Daily Feline Prompt: Meowshould, Meowwould, Meowcould

Tell us about something you know you should do . . . but don’t.

Aviary, Solothurn

“I should really advise Mrs. Human to keep a few interesting birds in our home.”

“Yes Tabby, then tell her.”

“I don’t know Fluffy, you know she always gets the wrong end of the whisker.”

“Typical human. You mean she is sure that we are only thinking of ourselves.”

“Of course, although that would be the right end of the whisker. We are thinking of ourselves.”

“But we don’t have to tell her. Just convince her that some nice little feathered friends would be an ideal addition to our home.”

“Sorry to say Fluffy, that it won’t work. After we ordered the fresh tuna fish in a tank online she will not believe us.”

“That was also something I couldn’t understand. The fish were delivered complete with tank and hammer to hit them on the head. There was even a nice sharp fish knife to go with it all.”

“I know Fluffy, but humans are a bit funny in that respect. She found all sorts of excuses not to keep the fish tank: not enough room, water splashes on her furniture and she even refused to kill the fish.”

“That was where I found she was really being silly. No-one said she had to kill the fish, that would have been part of our fun to kill them. And so you don’t think she will like the idea of live birds in a cage.”

“Fluffy, she is suspicious and does not trust us.”

“That is not very nice Tabby, but I don’t trust humans either.”

  1. When my mom was a kid (the dark ages), on Friday her mom would buy a live carp at the market then leave it swimming in the bathtub until it was time to make the gefilte fish. She would (said my mother) bang it over the head and voila, chopped, spiced carp would eventually follow. Do your felines know the recipe for gefilte fish? It has been lost in the mists of time …

    • I don’t even think I know the recipe. I know it is a jewish food, and the word “gefilte” is very similar to the german word “Gefillt” meaning stuffed or filled, so it is probably some sort of stuffed fish, but I don’t know what it is stuffed with. Or of course it could be filleted fish. My felines do not usually bother with recipes, they just eat it but demand that I remove the bones.
