Which was shall I go? Yes I am at the crossroads of my life. What have I seen in life? Not very much 4 sleeping places and a recycling tray. It is such a boring life living as a feline amongst the humans. Always the same vitamin pellets to eat now and again with a tuna fish supplement.
I have met felines that have done things and been places. The only place I have been to is the vet and that is not exactly a change of scenery. Locked in a cage and waiting to be jabbed in my private parts. To add to the humliation I have to share a waiting room with canines, other felines and even reptiles. Once there was a guinea pig in a cage, which I quite enjoyed imagining all sorts of various ways to serve it for lunch.
So here I am on the path of destiny. Shall I follow the straight path? No, I do not think so, Mrs. Human always goes that way when she take a walk along the river, and I heard her saying that everyone takes their canines for walks along the river. I once chose the path to the right. That is quite an interesting path as it leads to a place where they have lots of stones, like a giant recycling tray. Mrs. Human said I should not deposit my recycled products there as the neighbours might complain. I am sure that Roschti, the feline next door and Butch, the feline across the path would not complain. They said they do not mind, because it is no cat’s land and anyone can use it.
On the other hand I could go to the left. I used to go to the left a lot. There is a house with a big garden with lots of trees. That is where Butch and Roschti throw their hissy fits and now and again paw swipes. I think I will avoid that, I do not want to get involved. On the other hand I suppose……..
“Tabby, where are you going?”
“I thought I might go on a journey Mrs. Human to discover the meaning of life.”
“I thought you found the meaning of life in a bowl of tuna fish.”
“Not quite. On the other hand why worry about the meaning of life. I will worry if my food bowl is empty, which it never is, but I do not sit around worrying about whether I will be fulfilled or liberated or enlightened. What’s for dinner Mrs. Human?”
“I think I will stay for the time being Mrs. Human. I have come to the conclusion that you never know what is at the end of the crossroads, but I do know what is in my food bowl.”
