Daily Feline Prompt: Feline Flourish


“You don’t look very flourishing today Tabby.”

“Of course I am flourishing, my whiskers have never been so flourishing. I lost one this morning, but a new one is already growing in its place. Could you perhaps put the whisker under my cushion?”

“Do what Tabby?”

“My lost whisker, under my cushion. The whisker demon will replace it with a twig of catnip to reward me.”

“Whisker demon?”

“Mrs. Human, you are always talking about the tooth fairy for human kittens. We felines were there first of all, in the old days of being worshipped as Gods, and it was our idea. If you lost  a whisker it was replaced by a whisker demon with catnip.”

“That sounds more like a horror story. Weren’t the kittens frightened?”

“Humans had  tooth fairies, they were not as progressive as we felines. We have whisker demons. The collect our lost whiskers and replace them with catnip and not only for kittens.”

“What do they do with the lost whiskers they collect?”

“Don’t ask Mrs. Human,  you really do not want to know. Suffice it to be said that somewhere in the 11th life they appear again as a filling.”

“For what, no forget it. I have not yet found your lost whisker, perhaps I could substitute it with a hair from my head.”

“And be the laughing stock of the Whisker Demons, they will never visit again and will put a curse upon my remaining whiskers turning them grey and making them curl.There is only one solution Mrs. Human, you will have to empty that thing you call vaccuum cleaner and search for my lost whisker.”

“Of course, Tabby. Look I have found it wrapped around a piece of vitamin pellet food that dropped on the kitchen floor this morning.”

“Wonderful. Now you can wash it with your shampoo to remove the traces of vitamin pellet, and hang it up to dry. Afterwards iron it that it does not curl and place it under my cushion.”

“Are you sure this will work?”

“Of course it will. You will naturally not see the results, as they are only visible to feline eyes.”

“Felines and whisker demons? Are you sure?”

“I am and that is all that matters.”

  1. A whisker demon bearing catnip. Well, why not? We’ve got a guy in a red suit sliding down a chimney to leave coal for bad boys and girls … or something better for the not-so-bad crowd. A catnip demon sound just fine to me.
