Daily Feline Prompt: Stroke of Feline Midnight

Where were you last night at midnight? Would you have wanted to be somewhere else?

Tabby sleeping

“I am kaput Mrs. Human, knocked out.”

“And I thought you wanted to spend the new year with Mr. Human and me.”

“Forget it, it was too noisy outside. All those bangs and explosions, I thought the final feline apocalypse had arrived. Flash, bang, and lights in the sky. No decent feline would be seen outside on a night like that. I decided to take refuge somewhere nice and quiet.”

“Tabby we celebrate the new Year often with fireworks, and that was what you heard.”

“Mrs. Human, we felines also celebrate stuff, like Bastet’s birthday or the invention of the paw friendly tin opener, but we make no noise about it. We do not need explosions, we do it in our way.”

“You mean the paw friendly tin opener has now been invented.”

“Not yet, Mrs. Human, but we are working on it. I heard they have now developed the third prototype, but unfortunately it exploded.”

“Exploded?”

“Yes, it was Guy Fawkes Pawcat that was given the job, and he is one of those felines fascinated by solving problems with a big bang.”

“I thought felines did not like big bangs.”

“They don’t, but there is always an exception to the rule unfortunately. And now Mrs. Human, if you would perhaps leave me to take a few quiet moments. Are the humans trying to destroy the world again tonight with the big bang?”

“No Tabby, tonight they will be sleeping off the headaches from yesterday.”
