Daily Feline Prompt: Vice and the Feline


“Mrs. Human, away with the camera, I am having an intimate moment and do not wish to be disturbed.”

“It doesn’t look very intimate to me Tabby, after all you are only licking your paw and afterwards wiping it behind your ear.”

“Exactly Mrs. Human, we felines call it washing. We are self contained, independent and do not need things like showers and baths, or even bathrooms, but we still want our privacy. How would you like it if I took a photo of you in the bathroom with my pawpad.”

“That is something completely different Tabby. Humans do not want an audience when we take a shower.”

“Neither do felines.”

“But you cannot compare a shower to a lick on a paw.”

“It is all a matter of seeing things in the right proportion. What’s for dinner Mrs. Human?”

“Are you changing the subject Tabby.”

“Yes, I am hungry and I do not wish to talk about my private sphere on a blog. I do not tell everyone how you shower, and I do not want you to tell everyone how I manage my cleaning sessions. So what’s for dinner.”

“Vitamin pellets, chicken flavoured, with a side dish of cat nip.”

“Ok, no problem, but don’t look after I have eaten it.”


“Because I will probably have to have another lick to remove the crumbs.”

  1. Dear Tabby, I am a very clean canine. I learned this from my Siberian Husky moms. Siberian huskies keep themselves clean in a way very similar to the way you felines do. My little sister, Bear, has learned this from me so all in all, except for Mindy, who’s like a very dirty shag rug, we’re a pretty clean canine family. Yours forever and ever in animal hygiene, Dusty T. Dog

      Yes it pays off to remain clean. The others might smell you and then the problems begin. Of course, it is all a matter of time. I ususually managed to fit in my washing programme after eating and before sleeping, although not a lot of time remains, as I also have to have a wash when I wake from my sleeping session. In my kitten days my mum was washing us all the time. She always said that cleanliness was next to eating and killing the animals we want to eat, and she really knew what she was talking about. Yes, we had a clean mum, it was those smelly tom cats that were the annoying ones.
