Daily Feline Prompt: No feline apologies

What’s the one guilty pleasure you have that’s so good, you no longer feel guilty about it?


“Like having a private hour or so in the bathroom on the carpet, in front of the human recycling tray.”

“But Tabby that is not the idea. You do tend to block the access.”

“What access, you humans interrupt my relaxation time, where I can meditate on why guilty does not exist in meow.”

“But you have a special feline sleeping cushion, you occupy our beds during the day and now you have taken over the bathroom.”

“I would draw your attention to the fact that my cushion or your beds have no floor heating, but the bathroom floor does. I think I will carefully roll onto my side to position myself for a tummy tickle. Where are you going Mrs Human, I said tummy tickle.”

“I was going to fill up your food bowl.”

“You must sort your priorities. “Fill up your food bowl” means another layer of dry, hard, vitamin pellets. If you had answered with “I was going to open a tin a tuna fish”, then I might have been tempted to leave the nice warm bathroom carpet to partake in a meal. As there is only a mention of dry food with nothing to tempt my delicate taste buds, I will remain. Mrs. Human: tummy tickle.”

“Tabby I have other things to do.”

“Such as?”

“The evening meal for Mr. Human and myself.”

“That is not important. Now I am ready. No, not there, just a little between the front legs. Oh yes, that’s it. And now you can move towards my chin, but just light strokes.”

“Finished Tabby?”

“I could lay here for hours for a tummy tickle.”

“No, now it is finished, I really must go.”

“To open a tin of tuna fish?”

“No, today is Monday, you can wait until Wednesday.”

“But we don’t have days in meow.”

“But we humans do in words.”

  1. Dear Tabby, Hi. I’m finally old enough to write you so Dusty’s taking a nap. I also love a good tummy tickle. If my human doesn’t oblige, I just kind of step over one of her knees when she’s sitting down. She thinks I’m doing a giant puppy sitting on lap trick, but I’m actually getting my tummy scratched. I like it best when I get on the couch with my human (after throwing off my Big Sister, Mindy T. Dog) and my human scratches my tummy. I met a cat one time. She was a little gray cat and I liked her very, very much. I wanted to get to know her better but then the vet took me into the little room and gave me a shot. My human says it’s my nature to gentle with everything. I don’t know what she means. I’m just me, right? Very nice talking to you, Tabby. I hope I get to know you better. Yours forever, Bear T. Puppy

    • Meow bear T. Puppy and welcome to the feline-canine talk session.
      Yes, tummy tickles are the best that a human can offer, with the exception of tuna fish of course. Funny I never really want to get to know other felines better, or dogs for that matter, although I must say this online thing is great. We can discuss our private matters together without intervention of paw swipes, barks, meows or hiss. Just a nice comfortable conversation from dog to cat. I am also very gentle, but prefer to be on my own. I can meditate better and concentrate on my transcendential existence.
      I see you are maintaining a leadership rôle in your home. I too am in a alpha position, although Nera and Fluffy have moved on to their 10th life, so there is now only I, me and myself.
      Look forward to further inter animal thought exchanges – tabby
