Daily Feline Prompt: Borrowed Feline


“Tabby do you have to lie on my bathroom carpet.”

“It is not Your bathroom carpet, it is a bathroom carpet and it is very comforable and warm. And do not say I am borrowing it, to fit with the prompt. Humans have no idea, borrow does not exist in meow, it is all mine, unless I do not need it.”

“But you are in the way in the bathroom. You have so many places where you can sleep and relax. Bathrooms are not for felines.”

“Who said that. If I want to be in the bathroom, I will. I would take the opportunity to mention that the bathroom carpet is no longer as soft and comfortable as it was. I think you should buy a new one. Perhaps something in cashmere, or a soft chinese silk, hand woven. Yes that would be more comfortable for my fur,”

“But it is only a bathroom carpet Tabby. If it doesn’t suit you, you have your own cushion on the top of the wardrobe.”

“I only do tops of the wardrobe in the morning Mrs. Human. Afternon is time for a real relaxed sleep. Oh, and when you are hovering around, do me the favour and give me a tummy tickle. No, not there fooish human, between my two front legs. Yes, exactly and now you can do a gently stroke beneath my chin. No, not so fast, slower with care, yes great.”

“Can I go now Tabby, Tabby. She has now fallen asleep.”

“I am still awake Mrs. Human, just do not give silly answers to a silly question. Stay and read me a bedtime story about how we felines were worshipped as gods in the old country. Mrs. Human, Mrs. Human. Typical, she has gone. I hope she has something worthwhile to do, like preparing my evening meal.”

  1. Dear Tabby, In Canine everything belongs to the pack. Fortunately for my little sister, none of us have the remotest interest in her toys or cardboard boxes. Still, I’m sure she’d share and if she didn’t, I’d have to make her. Yours forever and ever, Dusty T. Dog.
