Daily Feline Prompt: The Feline Pretense


“Hello Tabby, I had to search for you.”

“I decided to make an inspection of my territory to make sure that the other felines were obeying my rules and regulations.”

“But this land belongs to everyone to share.”

“The territory begins just behind me. At the moment I am in no-cats land to see the possibilities of extending my territory, although Roschti the feline next door also has intentions on this part.”

“But Tabby, you do not need more space, you have enough.”

“That is not the way it works in feline territorial rights. The first one to deposit a paw mark and rub the whiskers on a tree has made a claim and it must be defended.”

“What happens when another feline has also pawed and rubbed the whiskers on the same tree.”

“That is where  a conflict situation could arise and then we have to lay down the law and establish our rights.”

“You mean there will be a dispute?”

“Of course, you cannot allow any feline to take over your possessions just because he might be there first. It is a fight to the last claw and whisker.”

“So you are preparing to fight for your territory.”

“I will think about it Mrs. Human. In the meantime I will withdraw to my favourite chair on the porch. It is now your responsibility Mrs. Human. If you notice a feline intruding on my territoriy, just chase it away.”

“I thought that was your responsbilitiy.”

“Not when I am sleeping. You should really begin to earn your right to take care of me Mrs. Human and not be so lazy. This is not a game of pretense. You are my official feline territorial rights protector. Do you really think I would make my paws dirty in a fight? This is not a game, but the real thing.”

“But what if Roschti arrives and wants to take over your territory.”

“That is your problem, just do not make a noise if he scratches you. I am now sleeping.”

  1. Dear Tabby, I have discovered a feline in our territory. I’m advocating live and let live. My little sister wants to meet her. My older sister could not care less. I’m sorry to tell you that I barked at her, but I look for her whenever we go on a walk. She seems to have an immense territory that we cross all the time, but she does not come within our walls. Yours forever and ever, Dusty T. Dog

      An unwritten law amongst the felines, “he who hears a dog bark, does not go further”.I rarely meet dogs in my territory because their humans have to keep them on these strange things called leads. Now and again humans have good ideas.
