Daily Feline Prompt: The New Feline School

You get to redesign school as we know it from the ground up. Will you do away with mice, birds and solving territorial disputes? What skills and knowledge will your school focus on imparting to kittens?


“I think I will sleep through this one Mrs. Human.”

“But I was sure you would design the perfect education for a kitten.”

“Mrs. Human, kittens should be seen and not heard, and sometimes it is better when you don’t see them. They are more trouble than they are worth. Screaming for milk, fighting for their milk tap and running around in circles, getting in eveyone’s way.”

“But you never had a kitten, so how comes you know so much about them.”

“The fact that I never had a kitten was outside of my control – remember? Not that it really bothers me. I remember the days when I was a kitten, it was a fight for recognition and survival. We don’t arrive in one packs, usually anything from a four pack to a six pack and more. I was one of four and that was a fight for recognition, food and survival.”

“It coudln’t have been that bad, you made it.”

“Of course I did, but I had to fight my way through.”

“So how do you see the feline possibilities of education.”

“Mrs. Human, we are born educated. It is all in the whiskers and the paws. You are hungry so you eat, you want space, so fight your way through.”

“But I am sure your mother and father were supporting your needs.”

“Are you joking. Mum was too busy drinking to produce milk and father is a non-existent word in meow. Their work is already done in the manufacturing stages. As for all I know my dad lives in that house over the road, he wouldn’t recognise me and I wouldn’t know him. We might even have a fight over our territorial rights. Talking of which, that is something I never had to learn, it sort of came with the package deal I got when I was born.”

“Tabby you should paw a book about growing up as a feline.”

“I did, but it was rejected and classified as a horror story.”

  1. Haha… rejected and classified as a horror story. Tabby, I like your sense of humor. Now you would say that humor doesn’t exist in meow. Though I don’t appreciate the roles of father felines but you know what? Some human fathers behave just like them…..wouldn’t recognize their kids since were only there during manufacturing stages. Strange, isn’t it ?

    • Meow, whose laughing, I am serous. I write a brilliant piece of literature and it is classified as something not fit for human consumption, but on the other hand who wants to please a human. I would not recognise my dad either, although they did say he also had a Macdonalds “M” on is forehead, just like me.


  2. Dear Tabby, I don’t know who my parents were, either. As for school, my human sent me to school. I loved it. I was with a nice woman who had her own dogs and there were other dogs in school. We went to the beach and the park and we got to go with her when she rode horses. When I graduated (with honors) I found life to be a lot more peaceful and my human was very happy that I was no longer afraid of everything. I think that was a good school. Now my little sister is being home-schooled. My human is a good teacher, too, but we don’t get to go to the beach. Yours forever and ever and ever, Dusty T. Dog

      We do home schooling, although Mrs. Human seems to think she is the head teacher. i just humour her and do my own thing in any case. Of course it is clear that canines obey it is in their nature. We just think about it first of all and sleep it over for a few hours.I already had my honours when I was born. We felines are always one paw ahead. We don’t have beaches, just a river and that is full of water so I avoid it.
      have a nice barking day Tabby
