Daily Feline Prompt: The Feline Jump


“Come Tabby, action time.”

“Huh, action, is someting burning? Is there a tuna fish thief here. Do I have to jump and move?”

“I thought it must be boring sleeping most of the time. I was sure you would like some exercise. When you was a kitten I remember you would jump up and clap your paws together trying to trap a butterfly or hawkmoth.”

“You think too much Mrs. Human, Humans are not consructed to think but to be there for feline needs. They were my kitten days Mrs. Human. I am now in my mature lady days and leave the sport to the youngters. I noticed  that you are not very active these days. You used to fill a bowl of tuna in a minute. Now you think about it for five minutes before you open the tin. Opening the tins is also now a slow process, and you often have to call Mr.Human for help. Perhaps you should organise one of those electronic tin openerrs.”

“Tabby, no matter how fast I open a tin of tuna fish, it is never fast enough for you.”

“You can also buy tuna in plastic bags Mrs. Human, That would be easier. I could then rip  them open with my claws, and save you the trouble.”

“No, Tabby, one thing I do not want is a Tabby feline that has a do-it-yourself service with the tuna fish. You would be eating it constantly, and too much is not good for you. You need your vitamin pellets for a well balanced diet.”

“I am very well balanced Mrs. Human and bouncing with energy and “too much” does not exist in meow.”

“But you should have more exercise.”

“I exercise in my sleep. If you knew the kilometers I paw when my eyes are closed. I have to take another sleep to recover from my sleep exertions.”

“But you just lay there, alter the position now and again and sleep further. I do not see you making any great jumps or leaps.”

“That is because you are human. Felines are always in motion, even when they sleep. We need our sleep to recover from the sleep that we slept.”

“That is a little hard to understand Tabby.”

“No problem, that is because you are human.”

      I suppose I could if I wanted to, but I have to judge whether it is worth spending the energy on a jump. It is a case of mind over matter. My mind prefers to take it easy so I let the matter get on with things. I now prefer to just watch and take my time.
