Daily Feline Prompt: Feline Fright Night

What’s the thing you’re most scared to do? What would it take to get you to do it?


“Who me, I am not frightened of anything.”

“Of course not, Tabby, when I think how quick you hop through the cat flap if Butch or Roschti are following you..”

“Is that supposed to be a human joke Mrs. Human?”

“It is just the truth Tabby, but I know something you are frightened of.”

“Which is?”

“Fireworks of course, all animals are frightened of fireworks.”

“First of all, I am a feline, god, and not just an animal. As far as fireworks are concerned, we are not frightened, we have respect.”

“It doesn’t look like respect when you charge through the cat flap at 200 miles an hour and sprint to hide under the bed.”

“That is just a trial run to see how fast I can really move Mrs. Human, just a coincidence that fireworks are exploding at the same time, although I would say that letting off fireworks is one of the most stupid things humans can do, and they do a lot of stupid things.”

“I would admit Tabby, they cost a lot of money, you light them, they explode and within a couple of minutes it is finished.”

“When is the next firework night Mrs. Human?”

“That might be at the beginning of the new year.”

“Will the space under the bed be free.”

“There is always room for you Tabby.”

“No, I was thinking to invite Butch and Roschti for a pawpad session, they are also allergic to fireworks. We could be together paw-in-paw until they are finished.”

“No problem Tabby. What about 1st August?”

“What happens then, is it some sort of god birthday, like Bastet.?”

“Yes it is the birthday of Switzerland, our national day. We light fires on the mountain tops and send rockets as well as exploding fireworks.”

“August you say, I will have to think that over. Perhaps it might rain.”

“I thought you didn’t like rain.”

“It is a matter of choosing the lesser of the two evils.”

  2. Dear Tabby, My sister Mindy and I also don’t like, ahem, respect fireworks and we also respect thunder. My little sister doesn’t seem to care. As for fear, I’m afraid of many things — large dark men in hats particularly frighten me, and the white truck that comes every day making strange beeping noises sometimes and honking. I have tried every single day to get that truck to stop coming here to no avail. I though my fiercest barks and fence jumps would do the job, but they haven’t. Yours always and always, Dusty T. Dog

    • Hi Dusty
      Yes thunder is another one of those mysterious noises. I havn’t yet got to the reason for it, but I can’t blame the humans because they don’t like it as well. actually I don’t like any noise, my ears are too sensitive. Yes beware of men in hats and white trucks, although we don’t have any here. Just men in big moving things that collect all the food leftovers and other stuff that humans don’t want. That makes a lot of noise, that is why I always try to sleep through it on Friday when they come.

      And beware the jubjub bird and shun the frumerous bandersnatch. I am sure you know what I mean.
      happy halloween – no fireworks, – Tabby

  3. Most creatures, great and small, are afraid of loud noises. Our current pack come and try to climb into my lap on each holiday.

    Fireworks. Thunder. Danger!

    But — I had one dog — Pagan — who LOVED it. She would go out and howl along with the storms and bark back at the fireworks. She was unique and I miss her.
