Daily Feline Prompt: Feline Companions


“Mrs. Human, I am having a few quiet hours with I, me and myself and need nobody, no-one.”

“I thought I would keep you company Tabby. It must be a lonely life on your own with no other felines to be your companions.”

“Companions, please explain.”

“Other felines that would go for walks with you, someone to share your toys with, perhaps to make a stay over at your home, for company.”

“The only think I would share with anyone, is my dish of hard vitamin pellets, and they could happily take them over. Felines do not share anything. There are so many words you said that do not exist in meow, they are not worth talking about. I am a feline, I, me and myself, and need no-one. For get the stay overs, they would become fight overs. Felines do not socialise, except on pawbook.”

“But pawbook is not real life.”

“I have enough real life here Mrs. Human and in real life  I can assure you, there is no such thing as companions, friends, joint ventures, or walking paw in paw. It only exists on my pawpad and in pawbook. Real life is a bowl of tuna fish, sleeping, hunting birds, sleeping and mice and sleeping.”

“But it seems you are sleeping your life away Tabby.”

“Do you have any better suggestions?”

“Where are you now going Tabby.”

“It is the hour of the day when I search for a place to sleep and do not disturb. I believe you now have the hour of the day when you will tell everyone about it.”

  1. Dear Tabby, I understand from my human that felines are solitary. She took one of those tests on her laptop that told her she is a tiger. I find it odd that she would believe that since she’s clearly a human being, but humans are strange, as you know. I’m very happy being a canine. All my life I’ve had other canines to live with and that makes me happy, too. I believe this is one of the biggest differences between canines and felines. Your friend forever, Dusty T. Dog

      And don’t forgt the bones, felines do not bury them or chew on them – our dainty mouths are too sensitive. We felines do not live with other felines, but we put up with them. Humans are there to serve and not to be served – at least not from felines. My favourite 3 people in the world are I, me and myself, we are so happy and contended together.
      Have fun with your canine colleagues and your human. I am also a tiger, disguised as a Tabby, but deep down there is some tiger, lion, panther and cheetah – I can do it all.
      Have fun Dusty and bark nice and loud so that I can hear you.
