Daily Feline Prompt: A Feline Joke


“Tabby, tell me a joke”

“A what? Joke? is that something you can eat. Does it fly or swim?”

“Tabby a joke is something to tell someone and then you all laugh.”

“Laugh, is that difficult, can I use my claws, or is it just the whiskers.”

“No, Tabby, you meow something funny and that is the joke. Everyone laughs, unless they do not think it is funny.”

“Then what is the point of telling this joke thing if there are humans that do not find it funny. and you cannot eat it, unless it flies or swims?

“No Tabby, the only action is when you roll on the floor laughing and cannot stop.”

“I only roll on the floor if my fur irritates me because there might be something that has decided to make its home in my fur. I don’t remember rolling on the floor because it was funny.”

“A joke is like this:
 Why was the cat sitting on the computer?
To keep an eye on the mouse!”

“Aha, I see.”

“No Tabby, you do not get the joke. Why was the cat sitting on the com0puter? It is obvious, you know you need a mouse to operate the computer.”

“But I would not sit on the computer to see what the  mouse was doing. I would take the mouse in my paw and push it around and I would not have to keep an eye on it. Humans are so not logical.”

“Yes Tabby, I understand. Cats have no sense of humour it seems.”

“What is a sense of humour?”

“No Tabby, please do not ask, that would be too complicated to explain.”

“Which is the usual human excuse when they do not know the answer.”

  1. Cats have a great sense of humour, I really have to disagree with you here! Why else would they put up with us?

    My two are funny all day long. My tom tells me a joke when I stand at the bedroom door and he lies on the bed. I call him and he meows back – and looks very pleased with his delivery. I always have to laugh …

    • I often have a laugh at my cat, but never a laugh with my cat. We seem to observe the world from two different angles. I see the funny side of things and she spends most of her time looking for it and never finding it.

    • Me too. I’m sure cats can have a sense of humor. Some of mine perpetrated some pretty good practical jokes. One of their favorites was hiding behind a corner and leaping on your ankle as you walked by then running away to laugh about it.
