Daily Feline Prompt: The Pensive Feline


“You are looking very pensive Tabby, a penny for them.”

“I beg your pardon.”

“I mean a penny for your thoughts.”

“First of all my feline thoughts are worth much more than a penny, at least 2 tins of tuna fish and in meow we say “a whisker for your thoughts”, meaning we would have to take a loan out with the whisker demon who collects the fallen whiskers from beneath our cushion and that is not advisable. You do not talk to Whisker Demons, they talk to you.  I explained it all yesterday and do not like repetitions. At the moment my single pensive thought is when is that lazy human going to open the window to enable me to enter my home and rest in deep thought on my cushion.”

“Oh, sorry Tabby, but all you have to do is push your nose agains the window. It is open.”

“And how am I suppose to know that it is open? I am not a mind reader. I am waiting on this chair for you to open it wider. I do not squeeze through closed windows that might be possibly open. I am not a mind reader, and reading human minds is particularly difficult as the human logic is somewhat misguided.”

“I have now opened it completely, but hurry as there is cold air entering my, sorry your home.”

“I am coming. Is my cushion ready, did you air it out, and smooth it flat to accept my luxury curves.”

“Of course Tabby, would you like something to eat before you take your sleep.”

“I am thinking about it.What is on the menu? No don’t bother I can see them from here. Vitamin pellets. I do not suffer from vitamin deficiency, I am fighting fit and ready to go.”

“In that case you could remain outside and go places. I believe Roschti, the feline next door, is also outside. You could have a little get-together and share experiences.”

“Yes definately. We are both fighting fit and ready for a slight pawsome duet I am sure. You have strange ideas Mrs. Human. No, I will refrain from action with Roschti, I must take a few minutes of meditation before sleeping to put me in the mood. In the words of the great feline spiritual leader Dalai Pawma “Feline sleep is the best meditation for refreshing the whisker and feline soul and to keep the whisker demons away.”

  1. Tabby can join my crew in Deep Thought today.

    It’s all your fault, you know. I had to order a pink flamingo for my garden. I’ve always wanted one and suddenly, I thought … “Now THERE’S an adventure. My very own Pink Flamingo.” Because … well … because. I will take many pictures. I hope he likes the garden.

    • A pink flamingo, that would be great in my garden. I wonder if you can get Whisker Demons as well. I will probably have to wait until halloween then I could put it next to the coffin.
