Daily Feline Prompt: 10,000 feline vitamin pellets

…When all you need is a tin opener might not be ironic, but it is unfortunate. Add your own verse, stanza, or story of badly-timed annoyance to Alanis Morissette’s classic.

Fluffy discovers the tuna fish tins

“Now that is an ironic photo Mrs. Human. Fluffy wondering how to eat the tuna fish in the tins without a paw friendly tin opener, which has not yet arrived in the shops.”

“I remember the photo Tabby. I opened the tin for him afterwards.”

“Fluffy told me that he now has tuna fish tins that do not have to be opened. He just makes a wish and they open themselves in the eternal corn chambers”

“You had a conversation with Fluffy? I thought he had left us for the rainbow bridge.”

“Oh yes, Mrs. Human, where he is waiting for you to collect him? Forget it, tuna fish tins wait for no-one. When we felines reach our 10th life, there is enough tuna fish for everyone. The Rainbow Bridge is not a feline thing, there is water below and we might fall in. We prefer dry land and so we go to the eternal corn chambers.”

“By the way Tabby, they now sell the tuna fish in pellets, so I thought that would be something easier for you to eat.”

“You mean like those vitamin filled hard pellets that I have to force down my throat every day.”

“Yes exactly, it will be so much easier for you.”

“Oh yes, Mrs. Human, Tell me would you eat your steak if it was just a pellet with a steak taste.”

“That is not the same Tabby.”

“Good, because I discovered that you can now buy packets of steak flavoured pellets and I ordered you a packet online.”

“But I prefer the real thing. I have a steak in the fridge for my dinner.”

“Not any more Mrs. Human. I gave it to the dog next door as a peace offering. The dog said he would no longer chase me if I give him some fresh meat. And now you can munch your steak pellets Mrs. Human, look.”

“But they are very dry and tasteless.”

“Somehow that is ironic Mrs. Human. I am supposed to have fun eating my permanent supply of pellet food, and when I organise the same for you, you tell me it is tasteless.”

“It is not the same thing Tabby.”

“I know, mine are chicken flavoured and yours are steak flavoured, but let’s be frank, they all taste the same – or would you prefer something fresh? I know I prefer tuna that looks like tuna, perhaps humans prefer steak that looks like steak. I know the dog next door loves it.”

  1. Hi, Anglo Suisse, haven’t followed you for a while; too busy making Xmas pudds.
    I just posted a story about cats in Mexico that yours might enjoy, but don’t know how to transfer it to your blog. It is titled “Breakfast in the Garden” but in Spanish “Desayuno en el Jardin: Gatos de San Miguel”
    Let me know if you can read it.

    • I just like to make sure that Tabby always has food. My felines never had feeding times, there was always two bowls full of vitamin pellets. It was strange how they all had their own tastes. Nera would eat anything and really loved the pellets, but Nera was overweight which probably lead to her demise. She would also eat tuna, but otherwise tit bits never really interested her. Tabby was simiar, but is a co-called carbohydrate cat, and likes a morsel of pasta or potato. Fluffy would eat anything and everything. He was the only feline I had that in his seeing days he would devour a mouse with everything including the tail, which other cats do not so much.


  2. Dear Tabby, It was nice to see Fluffy again. I complained to my human about my pellets and she just said, “Drink more water, Dusty. You already get fish oil to go with them and other things like apples and tomato slices and a strawberry every morning.” I couldn’t argue. She has a point. Yours always and forever — oh, greetings to Fluffy if he manifests again! Yours always, Dusty T. Dog

    • Meow Dusty – I drink a lot of water during the day and night. I even have a bowl outside if I go for a walk, but in Winter it is sometimes frozen. Mrs. Human once said something about I might be diabetic, but that is not the case. I just have to wash those hard dry pellets down with something. We felines don’t do fruit and veg, something to do with our digestive system, but we are good at meat. I quite like a bowl of yoghurt now and again.
