Daily Feline Prompt: Feline Price

Priceless Tabby

“Err Tabby, don’t you think you are taking this prompt a little too seriously.”

“Not at all Mrs. Human. If I don’t say it, no-one will notice it. After all I am the No. 1 here and without me you would be at a loss knowing what to do Mrs. Human.”

“Oh, I think I have enough to occupy myself with during the day.”

“What was your first duty this morning Mrs. Human, to clean my food bowl, fill it with fresh “yuck” hard vitamin pellets. Your second duty was to check if my recycling tray needed a clean. Your life would be boring and pointless without me Mrs. Human.”

“Just a minute Tabby. This morning my first job was to prepare my breakfast and make a cup of tea. Afterwards I switched my computer on, and I did not see you. I think you were still sleeping and I really did not want to disturb you.”

“You thought I might be sleeping. Did you search for me, look for me. No, you were too interested in your own affairs. That was being rather selfish Mrs. Human. I could have been locked in a cupboard or in the throws of a claw fight with the dreaded Roschti, the feline that owns the neighbour: but no, you were only interested in your breakfast? That is why I must emphasise my value, I am priceless Mrs. Human. I need your opposable thumbs to open my tuna fish tins, not to mention refilling my water supply regularly.”

“Sorry Tabby, how could I neglect you so much. Do you want me to find a fresh mouse.”

“Don’t overdo it Mrs. Human, I am feline and catch my own mice. Just point me in the right direction.”

“But Tabby what makes you so priceless, what do you do for me and Mr. Human to earn this special honour.”

“Just take the words from one of our Australian felines Paws Brown “A feline is the projection of peoples’ dreams about themselves – strong, powerful, beautiful – and it has the capability of giving us escape from our mundane existence”.”

“Are you sure she was referring to a feline, I thought she was more into horses.”

“And what came first Mrs. Human, the feline or the horse and which of us were worshipped….”

“As gods perhaps?”

“Yes, of course, at least you have learned something from such a priceless feline as I am. I now wish to take a rest, please guide me to today’s sleeping place. No, not there Mrs. Human, the place in the big bedroom with the comfortable cushion. We can cuddle up together when you take your golden oldie midday sleep. I think I am in the mood for a tummy tickle.”

  1. Priceless post, Tabby. Our boat cat Artemis also tells me she is priceless. We call her TLCIG – the luckiest cat in Greeece, she says her beauty and fame are priceless…. I think she has delusions of grandeur…..

  2. Dear Tabby, I cost $65 and my little sister was $150 and Mindy was $150, too, but our human got her for free from a friend. I don’t think our human considers those prices our value, though. She says you can’t put a price on love. She also told us of a Greek dog, Cerberus, who had three heads and whose job was to guard the underworld to keep the dead from escaping. It seems in olden times humans understood the true nature of animals. Yours forever and ever and ever, Dusty T. Dog

      I never talk with Mrs. Human about money things, although there was something about 100 Swiss francs for me and Nera, although she says if she worked out the price of all the bags of vitamin pellets and tins of tuna it would by far exceed the price she paid. She also muttered something about fur ball production, but I had then stopped listening. I pay Mrs. Human by giving her ideas to write my prompt and she is eternally grateful I know. There was a dog with three heads? I know of felines with three brains, is that something similar?
      have a good one – Tabby

  3. Our beasts are now lacking in self-regard or importance. I’m pretty sure our dogs cannot imagine why we are so slow in producing food, treats, and petting. Of course, right now, Bonnie is sulking since she realized that Gibbs now lives here and she has to share. She is definitely, blatantly, MIFFED. No amount of petting or treats will appease her until she is good and ready to forgive us. She loved him when she thought he was temporary. Now, she’s not so sure.

    • Tabby finds there are times when she is glad to be a feline. Mainly because many words do not exist in the feline meow and never will. One is definitely the word share. After many years of training her human realises this and always had a separate bowl for each of her felines, athough the felines interpret “share” as being it is all ours.
