Daily Feline Prompt: Drawing a Feline Blank

When was the last time your walked away from a discussion, only to think of The Perfect Comeback hours later? Recreate the scene for us, and use your winning line.


“Tabby, I am talking to you.”

“And I am eating, please do not disturb. If you want a conversation, you will have to wait. In the meanwhile you can help yourself to some of my hard vitamin filled pellets while you are waiting.”

“But Tabby humans do not eat vitamin pellets.”

“Surprise, surprise. The only reason I eat them is because there is not usually a choice. However, today I noticed you made an effort to open a tin a tuna fish, and now let me eat.”

“I wanted to ask you when the last time was that you walked away from a discussion. It is today’s prompt.”

“I would say about 2 minutes ago when you asked me a stupid question when I began to devour my tuna fish. There is a time for everything, but there are always exceptions to the rule. It stands in the book of Bastet, Chapter 104, verse 33, and now let me continue.”

“Actually I think Bastet borrowed that from one of our books.”

“Bastet does not borrow, and it was probably the other way round. Do not forget we felines were there first, like the ape arrived before the human, but we did not have a prototype. It worked the first time. Of course there was the sabre toothed tiger, but Bastet found she made a constructional mistake as the teeth kept breaking off. Afterwards she developed the perfect feline. The original was a Tabby, and afterwards she began to experiment. She stopped after the naked cat appeared, as she decided that was not the idea. And now let me get on with my dish of tuna.”

“Sorry I interrupted Tabby. Where are you going.? You still have some tuna fish in your dish.”

“The very fact that we are having a human/feline conversation about what we should eat, that we are struggling with the question about what the best diet is, is symptomatic of how far we have strayed from the natural conditions that gave rise to our species, from the simple act of eating real, whole, fresh food, meaning forget the pellets, tuna fish is the real thing.”

“Who said that Tabby, sounds very intelligent.”

“I meowed it, but it was a quote from the feline doctor Meow Mark Hycat.. He knew what he was talking about.”

  1. Our fur children do not respect us. They do not listen to us. Bonnie is outright rebellious. We tell her to go out and she quibble and back talks. Always finagling for another chewy treat. Bastet is just an excuse. Tabby is just pawing her nose at you!

  2. Tabby is convinced that Bastet exists somewhere floating on a cloud in the tenth life. She said to tell your dogs to have a nose to nose talk with Anubis who seems to be the dog god, but on a lower level as Bastet of course.
