Daily Feline Prompt: Feline Safety First

Share the story of a time you felt unsafe.

Tabby

“I am not keen on open spaces and prefer to be closed in with walls around me.  I was taking a walk along the open space in my home, but was alert. You never know what might be lurking in the dark corners.”

“But Tabby there is nothing lurking anywhere.”

“You are lurking Mrs. Human.”

“I am not lurking, I live here.”

“Yes, with my permission and you are lurking again with your camera. I think I will retire to the bathroom, there I am safe.”

“Why are you safe in the bathroom and not in the corridor.”

“That is obvious. The bathroom is closed on all sides, except for the entrance, and I always have my eyes on the entrance. It is also near to the cupboard where you keep your human clothes: another safe place and nice and comfortable.”

“But you tend to cast your fur on my clothes whilst you are sitting in the cupboard.”

“Of course, I have to leave my scent somewhere to ensure that when I return I feel safe. The best place is on top of the cupboard where my special cushion is. And just to mention, you should apply that noisy machine on my cushion again to rid it of my fur remnants.”

“But Tabby you just told me that it makes you feel secure when your fur remains on my clothes in the cupboard.”

“That is not the same thing Mr. Human. A cushion should be kept clean at all times, it is exposed on the top of the cupboard which is my lookout post. No-one approaches me up there, it is all for I, me and myself and I do not want a fur accompaniment to spoil my outlook. The cupboard is a closed space where I can savour the aromas of my aura and my fur keeps human smells away.”
