Daily Feline Prompt: Everything Feline Changes

Walking down the street, you encounter a folded piece of paper on the sidewalk. You pick it up and read it and immediately, your life has changed. Describe this experience.

The Kartause

“Tabby, it looks like Butch, one of your feline friends is waiting for you to come out and play.”

“I beg your pardon, he does not want to play. He left a paw mark on a piece of paper in the garden yesterday and we all know what that means.”

“Perhaps felines do, but we humans do not.”

“Then it is better that you never learn what it means. When Butch writes a note with a paw print, your fate is sealed.”

“But he is only a feline.”

“Only a feline, and you are only a human. If one of your human neighbours was standing in front of the window just waiting, how would you react?”

“That’s different Tabby, we are humans and do not stand in front of the window, unless there is a human that is a criminal and wants to break into your home and he is waiting to see when it would be the right moment.”

“Mrs. Human, all felines have a streak of criminal, some more  and some less. Butch invented criminal. Last week he was seen disappearing through the hedge with two branches of catmint in his mouth.”

“You mean?”

“Yes, he was indulging in drugs again. He asked me to stand lookout while he was making his deals for two bowls of tuna fish.”

“And you refused of course?”

“Forget it, refusal of tuna fish is a feline crime. He is now waiting outside to do more dealing. He said I was the best lookout he had.”

“And you have refused?”

“Refuse two bowls of tuna fish? Are you out of your mind. No, but he wants me to take over his patch, because he is expanding his territory, that is why he is waiting outside the window.”

“See you later Mrs. Human”

“I thought you did not want to meet Butch and take part in his deals.”

“Who said that? Not me, there are always profits where Butch is concerned, but it has just started to rain. Look Butch has now gone and we will both wait until it stops raining. Don’t do business in the rain – old feline saying.”

  1. Yesterday I went shopping — a record, actually, since it’s a 30 minute drive to the store and 30 minutes back. And it was (shudder) Walmart. I was gone 1 hour and 15 minutes. For this I should get a medal… BUT I arrived home 15 minutes PAST their feeding time. Bear, who is VERY smart, figured out how to open the dog food bins. These are state of the art bins with lids that lock down very tightly and are supposedly only openable by those of us gifted with opposable thumbs. I walk in the front door, I smell dog food. Sure enough. They’ve had dinner. I still feed them (less) and act like nothing has happened. The only one hungry is Bear. Later I learn why. She might be smart enough to open the dog food bin, but all she did was take out the measuring cup and go outside and play with it. I don’t know if she’s a criminal or a clown. P.S. Tabby, I’m sorry but Dusty has been wanting to stay outside today. Don’t ask me why. Probably he’ll write you tomorrow. Dusty T. Dog’s Human

    • I had to laugh at that one.Tabby always has a dish of vitamin pellets ready to eat and does not really know meal times. She gets a treat in betwen with her tuna fish.vitamin pellets are no big deal so she does not overdo it with food. Nera was the opposite, eating seemed to be a favourite pasttime with her You have very intelligent dogs, perhaps too intelligent.
