Daily Feline Prompt: A stumped feline

Tabby 09.09 (2)

“Going places Tabby?”

“I am thinking about it. You could perhaps accompany me on the way with that telephone camera thing and record my movments. Even take a short film, yes, that would be brilliant. Edit the film, oranise the dialogue and I will become a film star. “Tabby the Fearless Paws Again” or “The unknown Feline Quest”.”

“Tabby, I only asked if your were going somehwhere, was not really interested in producing an adventure film of your movements. Just let me know when you return.”

“Is that all? I might meet perils on the way, have to defend my life against an unknown danger. There might even be a lion or tiger out there and all you want to know is when I return. What happes if I do not return? Will I be replaced by just another feline you might find somewhere. No interest in my uncertain future. I could be kidnapped Mrs. Human. Perhaps there is another human lurking in the bushes, wanting to be my slave: jealous knwing how lucky you are to be able to fulfil my wishes and needs.”

“I think you might be exaggerating Tabby. I thought felines were very independent and did what they wanted to, heedless of dangers hiding perhaps behind a tree stump, or even a wall. Felines are determined to the end, overcoming all dangers and pawsome problems.”

“Ok, you do not have to overdo it. I now know where I will go. There is an interesting wall along the path. If you get anxious about my whereabouts you wil find me wall watching. It might be that I perform a screming meow or hiss with my remaining breath before being surrounded by a wall. Do not worry Mrs. Human, I will return, defy all the problems on my way. Wall watching can be dangrous, but I will overcome.”

“Tabby don’t you think your are exaggerating  a little?”

“Felines never exaggerate, we fight until the end. Just make sure there is a bowl of tuna fish waiting when I return. Wall watching can make you hungry.”

    • Just eating a cheese and tomato bread which serves its purpose. Don’t feel like eating too much in the evening. Tabby had a hair ball problem this morning. She actually had not problem with it, but we did cleaning it away.


  1. Dear Tabby, I’ve been very busy this morning barking at a squirrel. Finally my human brought me inside. I don’t think she understands the importance of keeping rodent invaders out of our property. If she did, I’m sure she’d make a feature film. Looks like your human doesn’t get it, either. What can we do? Yours forever and ever, Dusty T. Dog

    • Rodents belong in rhe property, otherwise we four pawed intelligent superior intelligent beings would have nothing to bark at (or in my case to snatter and make noises that the humans do not yet understand). Humans are strange beings, and no matter how I try, I will never understand their targets in life. They are to be pities, opposable thumbs are not everything for a perfect life. Probably they also need more brain power.

  2. We have a wall in our back yard as well. Meekah likes to lie under a bush nearby it…. Now I know she is performing the ever important feline duty of wall-watching…. Heaven forbid if a neighboring cat comes over said wall – what a squalor ensues. You’d think (cat) world war III had started.

    • Walls are probably the second most important thing in the life of a feline. Who knows what deep sense of reasoning they discover when watching a wall. It is only second in place to the sound of the tin opener.
