Daily Feline Prompt: Travelled Feline Paths

Pinpoint a moment in your past where you had to make a big decision. Write about that other alternate life that could have unfolded.

Tabby walking in the garden 31

“Gong for a walk Tabby?”

“I am thinking about it Mrs. Human. If I had answered the advertisement on my pawpad when the job was vacant, I could have had a life of luxury.”

“What job was that Tabby?”

“Chief Feline to the Prime Minister of London. His place is full of mice and the last applicant was not such a good choice.”

“What happened?”

“”He got friendly with the mice and they would bring him catnip so that he would leave them in peace.”

“So the job is now vacant.”

“Of course not, the Prime Minister did not even notice it. It seems my future will be spent in digesting hard vitamin pellets and walking paths covered with snow. Mrs. Human, clear the snow away to make it easier on my paws when walking and today is Sunday you know.”

“Is that your Bastet worshipping day?”

“Of course not, she worships us for being there. No, it is the day when there is something different to eat, like opening a tin of tuna fish, and perhaps decorating it with a sprig of tarragon.”

“I did not know that felines ate herbs.”

“We don’t, but even we prefer to eat with the eye. It makes all the difference to have a decorated plate of food, encourages the digestive juices. “

“I have now cleared the snow from your path outside Tabby.”

“About time too, and now for a sleep.”

“I thought you wanted to go for a walk.”

“Where did you get that idea? Of course not, I want to rest my weary bones before eating my food. It was an exhausting morning. I had to change my sleeping place at least three times until I found a comfortable position. It is a hard life being a feline.”

  1. Dear Tabby, There’s almost no snow left here and my little sister is pretty unhappy about that, but now she can dig holes in the yard so that’s some compensation. She’s like you; she wants tuna fish on her vitamin pellets. And now we’re getting something called pineapple which is supposed to deter my sisters from their bad habit. I think this fussy eating thing is a problem with female animals of many species. Yours forever and ever, Dusty T. Dog

      Pineapple sounds fruity and we felines do not eat fruit. We don’t eat vegetable either. We only eat meat Now and again I am partial to some yogurt and perhaps ice cream.I am not a fussy eater and love to chew on grass, although that is again a question of fur ball production. As far as I know I believe the wonderful experience of producing fur balls is not shared by the canines. You don’t know what you are missing. On the other hand I have never buried anything and I do not do bones. Our snow is also now gone and Spring is in the air according to Mrs. Human, but I don’t see anything in the air at the moment. Humans are strange, they have hallucinations now and again.
      Keep on with the human educational system and tell your sisters bad habits are a matter of interpretation. Paws from the other side of the pond, Tabby
