Feline Daily Prompt: Teach your feline (Bloggers) well

We all know how to do something well — write a post that teaches readers how to do something you know and/or love to do.


Here is the first lesson. If you notice your human wants to take a photo of you, then walk away. She will follow you with the camera and you may think there is no escape, but she will soon get irritated  because she has no suitable adorable photo of Tiddles to show all her blogging friends. Eventually your human will lose patience and put the camera down, then is your chance to stand on your back legs, wave your front paws and perhaps even twiddle your ears. She will then take the camera in her hands again for a unique photo, but in that moment when she wants to point and shoot, you disappear into the recycling tray.

Another thing to remember is to disappear now and again. Your human begins a search in all sorts of strange places. She thinks you might have been locked in a cupboard. To be quite honest I have been locked in a cupboard, but it was a nice cupboard: closed in by four walls and on a comfortable soft cushion of pullovers. Scratch on the door when you want to be released and do not forget to draw a few threads from the pullovers before you leave. We call that leaving your mark. In this connection a pile of washing ready to be ironed is also to be recommended, although it could be that the human dislikes feline fur traces left on the linen. Just walk away it is a human problem, and they things called brushes which they can use to remove the fur. Personally I find a fur layer enhances the washing surface.

The human may still be searching for you. If only she would raise her head. She would see that you have taken the pole position in your apartment where you can watch every move the human makes.  In that case a further lesson, always be one paw ahead.

Now the most important thing. If you hear the sound of the tin opener, be prepared. Of course there are tins that humans open for themselves, but you can never be too careful. It might be the tin containing the tuna fish, and we felines do not want to miss out on a dish of tuna fish.

  3. Dear Tabby, Mindy employs a similar strategy when our human wants to take her photo. She ALWAYS looks away. Our human has gotten smarter, though, and aims the camera above Mindy. Mindy isn’t very bright and hasn’t caught on. Yours always and forever, Dusty T. Dog

      Mrs. Human often takes photos when I am sleeping which is really degrading. No wonder all the other felines laugh when they see me. I am now learning how to take a selfie for my Pawbook site, but it is difficult holding the camera in two paws because the other paws get tired standing on their own. The problems of a long distance feline photographer.

      • Dear Tabby — I’ve seen some of those photos. At least you’re not slobbering or something most of the time. My human is about to take my little sister and I on a walk so we will be thankful. Yours always, Dusty T. Dog

  5. Ah Tabby, My Isabel is a firm believer in your technique. She espouses the “I’m not your performing monkey” when I try to take video as well. She can be doing the most interesting thing in the world, only to stop the instant I try to film it. You felines remain mysteries by refusing to be captured on film in any way!

    • I would say your Isabel is a very clever and intelligent feline. she has learned well. If you want a film start then contact Stephen Spielpaw to get a good rôle and make sure the wages are good, at least a ton of catnip and a lorry full of tuna fish.
