Daily Feline Prompt: Feline Trick or Trick

Let’s imagine it’s Halloween, and you just ran out of tuna fish. If the neighborhood kittens (or anyone else, really) were to truly scare you, what trick would they have to subject you to?


“Silly question, I am a feline and do not scare.”

“You mean if I have no tuna fish left because I forgot to put it on my shopping list, it would not scare you.”

“No, Mr. Human, you are the one to be scared if you have no tuna fish. Hisses”

“Ok Tabby keep your fur coat on, I have tuna fish. Somehow it is always replenished on my shopping list, even if I forget.”

“Of course, that is because I have inserted the “replenish tuna fish” trick onto your online shopping list.”

“Oh, I see, I did not know there was a programme for that.”

“There isn’t, I wrote it myself. And now bring out the tuna fish. No not those, they are from the fresh supply, those in the cellar, the ones with the best before date that has expired.”

“But your friends are coming to paw at the window for their treats, otherwise they will trick us.”

“They will trick us in any case, it is a feline way of life.”

“Look, Butch has already deposited a hairball on the patio.”

“He did what?”

“Tabby what are you doing.”

“I can make bigger and better hairballs than Butch.”

“No, Tabby, now Roschti is coming and depositing a hairball.”

“It’s halloween Mrs. Human, hairball fright night. Don’t worry, we exchange hairballs and bury them in the other feline’s territory. It’s one of the tricks we play. Afterwards we have a game to guess whose hairball it was and the feline that makes most hairballs wins.”

“What does he win.”

“Our respect of course.”

    • I was just doing my “hairball wouldn’t melt in my mouth” poses. You want to know how to make a hair ball – quite easy. You eat some grass, mixed with leaves, form it into a paste and swallow it. Then …….
      “Tabby – no, this is a child friendly web site and not a space for your horror stories. The manufacture of a hair ball does not belong here.”
      Sorry, as you heard from the interruption, the hairball explanation will follow when Mrs. Human is not reading, looking or listening. She can really be a spoilsport sometimes, and hairball manufacture is really something ……
      “Ok, Ok”


    • Hairballs outiside on the porch are not so bad, I can just hose it down with a water jet (in summer). Inside is something completely different. Even washing the floor will not do the trick. You have to remove the residue first of all with a paper towel and – no, you might be eating dinner.
