Daily Feline Prompt: Never Again

Have you ever gone to a new place or tried a new experience and thought to yourself, “I’m never doing that again!” Tell us about it.

“Tabby be careful how you come down from your sleeping place.”


“It’s a long way and you do not always use your special steps that I bought especially for you to make it easier to descend.”

“I do not do easy when descending.”

“I noticed. One day you will break a leg.”

“Mrs. Human, I am 13 years young, I have never broken a leg up to now.”

“There is always a first time.”

“I do not do first times. I am a feline and we are built to jump and spring. Using steps is for cissies and all the other felines will no longer have any respect for me.”

“But if you injure yourself we will have to go to the vet and he can become very expensive mending broken bones.”

“Then we will not go to the vet.”

“Your bones will not knit together on their own.”

“That is because I do not intend to break one. And now to take a walk outside.”


“What’s the problem. I am now safely back on ground level – no broken bones, paws or claws. By the way I heard that you fell down last week by just taking a photo and not looking”

“That is something different, I lost my balance.”

“Of course, you only have two legs. We felines never lose our balance. We have four legs, one at each corner of the body for the symmetry and a tail as well which is a sort of control lever to create a perfect balance.”

“Humans do not have four legs Tabby, but two legs and two arms. We also have hands.”

“Well that didn’t help much did it, you still fell, probably because you were holding the camera in one of your stupid hands.”

“Hands are not stupid, they can use tin openers. And before you mention it, no, I do not need a tail.”

“OK, let’s call it quit, I think I will return to the top of the cupboard. One, two three, there I am. That was a safe landing, a careful aim. Did you see Mrs. Human, Mrs. Human. Oh dear she missed it. I think she passed out.”

    • We only have curtains on one side of the appartment where the bedrooms are. I remember when I put up the curtains in Tabby’s bedroom (she sort of has one) within 5 minutes Nera, Tabby and Fluffy all left their paw marks in them. Not too much, but enough. Seems to be a ritual.
