Daily Feline Prompt: The Feline Struggle


“Tabby, where are you going.”

“I am struggling to discover the meaning of life beneath a leaf.”

“What is so interesting beneath the leaf.”

“How can I know if I do not struggle to find out. Feline life is one big struggle from morning until morning.”

“We usually say “morning until evening.”

“That is a human frame of mind, morning and evening does not exist in meow. It is more awake and asleep with one ear open in case something happens. Our time is not divided, we exist and therefore we are. As the great feline psychoanalyst Dr. Paws Sigmund Whiskers said “The only reason for time is so that everything doesn’t happen at once” and he knew what he was talking about. He was the discoverer of the homo sapiens complex.”

“The what?”

“Quite easy, humans that struggle with not being felines and ask stupid questions like “Where are you going” when it is obvious that I am pawing my way beneath a leaf.”

“Have you found anything Tabby.”

“I am not searching for anything, I just want to see what life is beneath a leaf.”

“And what did you find?”

Tabby“Things that usually happen beneath leaves. It is rather damp and I am struggling with wet paws, so I think I will now move on to a more relaxing place. Yes, this is much better and more relaxing, Is question time now finished Mrs. Human, I am really struggling to understand the human logic. I do not ask you what you are doing, unless I hear the sound of a tin opener. Opening tins shows that the human is busy with the improvement of feline life. When is dinner served.”

“Will half an hour be OK Tabby, I do not want to disturb your rest.”

“That will do fine. Do not forget to sprinkle some chopped chives on my fish.”

“I did not know that you were partial to chopped chives.”

“Mrs. Human you eat with the eyes and it makes my bowl look more interesting. Are you having a struggle with the tin operner?”

“No, it is working ok now, I just happened to cut my finger on the lid of the can.”

“You see, even with opposable thumbs humans struggle. As Dr. Paws Sigmund Whiskers said ….. Mrs. Human where are you going. Typical, no interest in widening her horizons with the wisdom of the feline whiskers.”

  1. “The only reason for time is so that everything doesn’t happen at once.” I think Tabby may have actually found the essence of everything. Because if it all happened at once, life would (a) be very short and (b) extremely confusing. Not that it isn’t confusing already.

      Yes I am still working it out myself. That is the problem with great felines and great words, not everyone understands them. – Do not bother your canine head about it, one day you will meet a feline and will be enlightened.
