Daily Feline Prompt: Strike a Feline Chord

Do you play an instrument? Is there a musical instrument whose sound you find particularly pleasing? Tell us a story about your experience or relationship with an instrument of your choice.


“Tabby what’s that noise.”

“I’m practicing.”

“For what”

“Me and the felines thought we could do some serenading outside, after all it will soon be Catmas and Bastet appreciates some meow music, like Catmas carolimeow”

“But Bastet is not here, she is the chief of the eternal corn chambers somewhere in another dimension, at least so you told me.”

“Bastet hears everything, but we have to meow especially loud at Catmas so that she can hear us

Good Cat Wenceslas looked out
On the feast of Bastet
When catnip laid roundabout
And felines were getting pasted
All the felines getting high
Though the dogs were howling
Hissing felines drove them off
All together meow-ow-ing

How was that Mrs. Human?”

“I am not sure Tabby, but perhaps as a mere human I do not understand the meaning of Catmas.”

“And here is my Catmas wish list.”

“But it is very repetitive. Position 1-10 is the same, a tin of tuna fish.”

“Yes Mrs. Human, we felines are satisfied with small quantities I wrote the other 10 items on the back of the paper, because there was no room left.”

“But it is the same, except for the last position which says “a catnip tree”.”

“No problem Mrs. Human, if you cannot find a tree, a bush will do.

“On the first day of Catmas my human said to me
Partridge and mouse in catnip tree.”

Oh yes, the Catmas season is wonderful.”

  1. Dear Tabby, My human is laughing very hard at your Catmas song. I don’t know why. We canines celebrate something called Dogmas around this time of year and we all hang up all the socks we haven’t chewed up and hope Santa Paws brings us our favorite things. My little sister (who is now bigger than I am) wants a life time supply of empty 12 pack soda cartons. I would be happy with a lifetime supply of empty toilet paper rolls. Mindy wants food, but she always wants food. Do you suppose Catmas and Dogmas are? Because we have songs, too.

    Big soup bones, big soup bones, soup bones all the way, oh what fun it is to chew the meat off them today–AY!

    I hope you get everything on your list, Tabby.

    Yours forever and ever and ever, Dusty T. Dog

    • Meow Dusty and happy Dogmas
      I see you also have a good song for the season. Your must know Hark the Herald cats do meow, although I think at dogmas it is Hark the Herald dogs do bark. We don’t chew socks so much, but I had spent my time unrolling the toilet paper, that is why we felines prefer the complete roll. We spend happy hours at Catmas unrolling them. I remeber in the old days when I would have a competition with my litter sister Nera to see who could do it quicker. I always won as she had weight problems.

      “Oh come dogs and cats” etc. etc.

      Yes there is nothing like seasons greetings

      Have a good doggie day – Your pawful friend Tabby
