Daily Feline Prompt: Counting Voices with a feline

A lively group discussion, an intimate tête-à-tête, an inner monologue — in your view, when it comes to a good conversation, what’s the ideal number of people?


“Err, Mrs. Human, I am being crowded out here. All I wanted was a five minute, or an hour’s sleep, according to where the dreams take me, and suddenly I am surrounded by a selection of human objects. Tell me it is just for the photo and I can go back to sleep, although the one on the left has a faint smell of catnip. I will keep him and the rest you can take away.”

“It is all to do with your feline prompt Tabby. I though it would be fun to show everyone that you are not so alone in your feline life.”

“Mrs. Human I am never alone when I have you.”

“Oh, that is sweet Tabby, you have never passed me a compliment before.”

“Compliment is definitely not in the meow dictionary and I was thinking more of the moments when I just want to retire to I, me and myself and Mrs. Human has another bright idea, like showing everyone me in fifty different poses.”

“Then shall I go, or do you want to have a conversation?”

“No, I do not want to have a conversation. We felines like the quiet moments in life when we can meditate.”

“You meditate Tabby?”

“Oh yes, when I can get some peace and quiet without humans hovering around. I was meditating about the various tuna fish flavours according to the vintage year, I meditate about 50 ways to keep other felines (and humans) away from my territory and I meditate about the various flavours of catnip, Feline banner, being the strongest. Perhaps you could take a walk into town, and stand at a street corner. If you see a feline approaching you with a black and white striped scarf instead of a collar, that will be Nippy Joint. He has the best flavours to sell. Bring me a few twigs. He accepts a credit card.”

“But Tabby, that would be dealing and I might get arrested.”

“No problem Mrs. Angloswiss, Nippy Joint has blue eyes, an inheritance from his Siamese father, and no-one would suspect a blue eyed feline. And now leave me to enjoy the peace and quiet of I, me and myself and don’t forget the paw card as payment. Nippy Joint  has a built in chip in his front tooth to operate the transaction.”

  1. Nippy Joint…interesting! I prefer to get my nip from an online dealer, whose name shall be anonymous. I’ll leave the street corner to someone else.

    Gibbs and Ziva say “purrrr” and wish Tabby caviar dreams and endless bowls of tuna.
