Daily Feline Prompt: Felines do not make mistakes


“Yes, Mrs. Human, I have at last found  safe place away from the sun, so do not make another mistake of taking a photo and beginning an interview.”

“Tabby, I just wanted to ask you about the mistakes that you might make in your life.”

“Which life Mrs. Human, the first, second, third, or perhaps the ninth? An interesting question to ponder upon, although the actual word “mistake” does not really exist in meow, as we feline make no mistakes. We are often misunderstood by humans that continuously make mistakes, such as the one you are making at the moment.”

“What do you mean Tabby?”

“By disturbing my sleeping pattern. The is an old wise saying “A cat has nine lives. For three he plays, for three he strays and for the last three he stays.”

“And which one are you participating in at the moment?”

“I am not sure, am still sleeping it over, although this must be a human invention as we never play. We just try things out to see what can be achieved. That was six lives ago. I have never strayed, just explored the world beyond my territory which did actually take up another of my three lives.”

“So now you only have three lives left?”

“That is where the humans tend to make mistakes. We have as many lives left as we want to have, and do not forget the tenth life.”

“You have a tenth life.”

“Of course, but you will have to ask Bastet about that one. She is the boss and does all the logistic work. There is talk about an eleventh life, due to the fact that the etnernal corn chambers are getting crowded and the mice are rebelling.”

“What about the Rainbow Bridge?”

“Huh, do I look like a Rainbow Bridge type?. No  I am more for action, so don’t bother to search for me there. I heard they are looking for mice educators, so I think I will apply when my time comes for the tenth life. In the menwhile I will make the most of my 7,8 and 9th life in the shade in the garden. Interview finished, can I now sleep further, I have only got to the part where I am sleeping from the 7th to 8th life.”

“Sorry to disturb Tabby, sleep on.”
