Daily Feline Prompt: Felines only drive you mad

Take the third line of the last song you heard, make it your post title, and write for a maximum of 15 minutes. GO!

“Tabby what are you listening to on your pawpad. It sounds terrible.”

“Mrs. Human I have to listen to that noise you call music all day on the radio and now I have at last found something suitable for feline ears. It is beatiful, it takes me away to fields of mice, trees full of birds and I can smell the aroma of the tuna fish in the dish. This music is wonderful and especially composed by feline scientists with felines in mind.”

“Sorry Tabby, but it seems quite monotonous to me, Just lots of purrs, meows and somewhere a clock ticking in the background and an aeroplane landing.”

“There you have it Mrs. Human, you have no music appreciation. I can sink into the feelings with this music. It is a revolution. It is not a clock, it is the merhodic sound of light scratches in a recycling tray, and the purrs are our inside feelings. The author, Dr. Charles Snowdon, who was once owned by a feline, said “Cats are not humans and humans are not cats and it is important that we humans, as the servants of cats, be aware of this difference.” This recording was top of the feline Hit list for at least 50 years.”

“Thank goodness it is now finished. No Tabby not again.”

“Of course, it is the essence of feline music taste. Mrs. Human where are you doing. Oh dear, she has inserted ear plugs in her ears.”

  2. Dear Tabby, My human once heard that dogs can’t recognize music. She didn’t believe it, so she did an experiment with the Old Ones (Truffle, Molly, Kelly, Maggie and Lupo, RIP). Every day before hiking and then in the car heading up to the trails, she played ONE particular song. She says that it wasn’t long before the Old Ones went to the front door as soon as the song started. I have myself heard this song, but it has no association for me. I think I don’t care much about music, but then my human hasn’t taught me. Yours always, Dusty T. Dog

    P.S. We played your song. I don’t think we get it.

      We felines have a very exclusive taste in music. It is probably the semi tones and atonal reach of the scales that confuse you,, but it is excellent for meditative purposes, we just drift away into the floating sphere of the 6th dimension – unfortunately not available for canines. They are too busy discussing the meaning of bones.
      Have a nice barking day, Tabby

      • Dear Tabby, I’ve actually never had a bone. I asked my human about this and she said that she was always afraid to give us bones because we might fight over one. So if I were an only dog, maybe. My little sister has a lot of “bone” instinct. She digs holes and puts her toys in them. Yesterday she didn’t feel well and she put herself in one of her holes. I’ll let you know right away if I get a bone. Yours forever and ever and ever, Dusty T. Dog.

          I will mail you a bone, no three bones, to ensure there will be no fighting. Just let me know the size you want and the flavour, although I am not sure whether you country allows the import of dead material.
          In the meanwhile, just bury the next thing you find
          Tabby with pawing greeting.

      • Isn’t that the truth. What they desire blows me away. I fed my cat tonight and gave her a whole bowl of fresh water. She dipped her head down in the bowl of water, looked up at me, meowed loudly and walked away meowing. When I finally followed where I knew she would be, she was in the basement bathroom sink. She meowed, jumped onto the sink and meowed until I gave her more water in a teeny, tiny dixie cup! Are you kidding me? She’s such a princess.

        Your stories are fun.
