Daily Feline Prompt: Comedy of Feline Errors

Murphy’s Law says, “Anything that can go wrong will go wrong.” Write about a time everything did — fiction encouraged here, too!
Bonus assignment: do you keep a notebook next to your bed? Good. Tomorrow morning, jot down the first thought you have upon waking, whether or not it’s coherent.


“Tabby it’s time to write your daily prompt.”

“What’s it about Mrs. Human.”

“A comedy of Errors, like when things go wrong and we can all laugh about it.”

“And you woke me up from my daily sleep for such a load of rubbish. First of all we felines do not have errors, we are perfect and there is absolutely no cause to laugh about it, being that the word “laugh” does not exist in meow.”

“But you must find something funny now and again, like when I threw the ball stuffed with cat nip in the air and you didn’t catch it.”

“That was because I had no intention of catching it in the first place. I saw you poised with the camera ready to take a photo to show everyone.”

“Well it would have made a good blog.”

“Forget it, since you discovered that you can take photos with your smartphone and upload them straight away to your photo hosing site, there is a new Tabby picture every day on this blog.”

“I thought you would like it.”

“You could at least tell me to pose and not just snap away. How would you like it if I started to take photos of you with my pawpad when you were not expecting it. “Mrs. Human as she awakes from her golden oldie midday sleep”, “Mrs. Human leaving the shower in the morning” “Mrs. Human counting her grey hairs in the mirror” and …..”

“Ok Tabby enough, I got the point. Put that pawpad down, I am now going to serve a dish of tuna fish.”

“OK, no photo, serving tuna fish is not interesting unless you garnish it with some catnip. But that photo of you leaving the shower this morning ……..

“Give me your pawpad.”

“Mrs. Human, what are you doing.”

“I deleted it.”

“Probably better, there might be some kittens watching.”

  1. Once upon a time, I had a Siamese cat named Mao. He like to pose. Very Egyptian. On the fireplace mantle, he would make that Bastet pose. One day he fell asleep that way and promptly fell off the mantle. We laughed hysterically and he wouldn’t speak to us for days. Injured feline pride is a terrible thing.

    • When I lived in London we were on the first floor and had a very narrow window ledge, but Whisky our cat loved to sit there and watch the birds on the roof opposite. Once he seemed to forget the distance and made a grab falling from the first floor to below, but he was a tough one. He stood up, shook himself and climbed the stairs to get back on the window ledge. We don’t know how many lives he lost on that day, but he llved to a ripe old age.
