Daily Feline Prompt: Feline Pride and Joy

What’s your most prized possession?


“That’s an easy one Mrs. Human, you of course.”

“Me, Tabby, I am honoured.”

“Yes, of course, who else would clean my recycling tray and removed the unwanted matter of a daily digestive feline life.”

“Is that all?”

“Of course not, Mrs. Human. You feed me so that I am not forced to go on hunting expeditions even if it is vitamin pellets. In this connection I would suggest, no command, that little more imagination could be used with my food.”

“But vitamin filled pellets are healthy Tabby, that is why you have such a nice shiny coat of fur.”

“Did I ask for a shiny coat of fur? Natural food such as meat and fish might not make my coat shine, but I prefer the taste. Did you ever ask me what I like to eat?”

“The vet says that felines can exist perfectly on vitamin pellets. They contain all the goodness you need to be healthy.”

“Of course they said that. They want your money. According to the latest bulletin from the feline stock exchange, shares in vitamin pellets are reaching rock bottom. The Fow index has hit a new low in food supplies.”

“I didn’t realise that you were investing your whiskers in stocks and shares.”

“Not exactly, but I like to keep an eye on how things are progressing. The cost of feline food must remain stable, otherwise I will have to eat cheaper cuts of meat. Butch told me that the human he owns has started feeding him on cooked lung and other such inferior quality food.”

“My grandmother always fed her feline on cooked lung.”

“And where is the feline today.”

“Oh, that was many years ago, that feline departed to the Kingdom of Bastet.”

“You see, that was probably because of eating lung. To continue, to boost my profits I would advise only using freshly killed food. Just check the date on the tin or packet when you buy it. Best before is not always best before.”

“So what would you recommend?”

“I would get in a stock of tuna fish and catnip. I read that there might be a scarctiy and it is better to be on the safe side. It is predicted on Alley Street that their prices will be exploding. We will be rich Mrs. Human, at lest I will be rich.”

“So as my financial advisor, you would recommend avoiding vitamin pellets.”

“At all costs Mrs. Human, at all costs.”

  1. Dear Tabby, My human’s friend cooks meals for her dogs, but my human follows the same lines as yours as far as Mindy, Bear and I are concerned. Though if one of us has an upset stomach we get a special home-cooked meal of rice and chicken. Of course, we’re free to catch and eat anything in our yard. Always delicious and the added benefit is that usually leads to home-cooked rice and chicken. Perhaps you can use our experience to your advantage, Tabby? I hope you get your paw-friendly can opener soon. Yours always and always and always, Dusty T. Dog

      Lucky you. If I get an upset stomach it’s off to the vets with all sorts of strange infusions, tablets and medicine. Now and again I sit and wait next to the table when the humans are eating; not I do not beg, that would be degrading. I just wait and use my telepathic powers and generally are given a share of the ham or sausage. Rice is not my thing, I don’t think it is any feline’s thing, but I don’t mind a morsel of potato, especially chips. I like to lick them. I have given up with the paw friendly tin opener. Mrs. Human might feel unwanted and redundant if I have one.
      Meow to all at the dog mansion – Tabby

    • Me worry? Never, I leave that to Mrs. Human, although today I did have a problem. Somehow there were 25 hours instead of 24 and I had to work out what to do with the extra hour, so I had an extra hours sleep to think about it.
