Daily Feline Prompt: Feline Pace Oddity

If you could slow down an action that usually zooms by, or speed up an event that normally drags on, which would you choose, and why?


“Mrs. Human, my water bowl is empty.”

“But Tabby, it is almost full.”

“Let us get a few thing straight. If I say my water bowl is empty, it is empty. Look, just a dredge of old stale water.”

“Ah, I see, you men the bowl outside. But your bowl inside is full up to the brim.”

“Mrs. Human, I do not wish to drink water inside, but outside, where I can savour the fresh air.”

“Ok, Tabby, I will fill your bowl outside. If you are so thirsty you can drink from the full water bowl inside in the meanwhile.”

“Meanwhile does not exist in meow Mrs. Human. We abolished words like that some time ago. “later”, “tomorrow”, “next week” etc. We felines know only “at once”, “now” and “immediately”. You even have a choice Mrs. Human. I would suggest “immediately” for the best results.”

“Why stress Tabby, there is plenty of time.”

“I am not stressing, I am at my normal feline pace. Is it my problem when humans see everything in slow motion.”

“OK, just a minute, for the sake of a peaceful life, I will fill your bowl outside.”

“It has nothing to do with a peaceful life and no “just a minutes”, in feline time minutes do not exist, just space and time warps, according to the discovery of Stephen Cat Hawkins. It has to do with the relationship between feline and the subordinate human species. As the great feline psychologist Albert Katzeinstein said “Only two things are infinite, the universe and human stupidity, and I’m not sure about the former”.”

  1. Dear Tabby, Albert Katzenstein? I thought it was Albert Caninestein and his statement was, “Only two things are infinite, the universe and my love for my human and I’m not sure about the first.” Yours forever and ever, Dusty T. Dog

      It is again a question of how you regard the equation. I will have to think about it and report back, in the meanwhile I will exaine the feline equation H=mc2 (Human = 2 mice and a cat) and see who won, but I believe it was the feline. He caught the mice before the Human could move fast enough.

    • Meow – I looked at least three paws today and the dish was empty, so I had to make do with the inside water supply. I think Mrs. Human was sleeping on the job today. She was more busy feeding the other humans than me. What an insult to a superior creature like myself that was once worshipped as a god.
