Daily Feline Prompt: Feline Dilemma


“I have a problem Mrs. Human.”

“Tabby, are you ill, shall I make an appointment with the vet, or is it serious? I can put you in the cage and we can go right away to the uncle vet. No point in losing time, it could be serious.”

“Mrs. Human, stay cool. There is no reason to go to the vet, it would be wasting his time and mine. I am perfectly healthy. Put the telephone down, there will be no calls made to the vet. Perhaps you should call your human doctor for some tranqilisers to calm you down. We felines do not do half jobs, if our time has come we go and in any case there is always a new life waiting for us. I still have a reserve of 5 lives, so no panic. No, my problem is more in a psychosomatic direction.”

“I know, it is because the lotus flowers do not spring out of the ground when you paw your way through the grass like your feline Siddartha.”

“Is that supposed to be a joke Mrs. Human.”

“No, of course not, just saying. The word “joke” does not exist in meow I believe.”

“Mrs. Human can you be serious? In the words of the great Paws Buddha “To keep the body in good health is a duty… otherwise we shall not be able to keep our whiskers¬†strong and clear” which is the reason for my dilemma. I should maintain a healthy balance in my remaining lives, and that is the question. Here I am doing my relaxation exercises and cannot remember whether I should curl up clockwise, or anti clockwise.”

“Is that so important Tabby?”

“Of course it is. I am in a dilemma. If I slept an hour ago in a clockwise position, I should now maintain an equilibruim by sleeping anti-clockwise. I must keep in tune with the universe, the moon, the stars and the magnetic field surrounding my whiskers.”

“What happens if you sleep twice in a clockwise position.”

“That is a catastrophe. It would bring my complete world to a different dimension.”

“But if your make the wrong choice of how to sleep, you will notice it and can correct it on the next sleep.”

“That is a possiblitiy of course. I will think about it. I think the best solution would be to make a reminder on my meowphone. Of course. “next sleep clockwise” and after the next sleep I can change it to “next sleep anti-clockwise”. Why didn’t I think of that. By the way I have just noticed another note on my meowphone, it says next meal tuna fish.”

“That’s funny, the same is on my iPhone.”

“Of course, I connected my meowphone to¬†your iPhone to ensure that we do not have any dilemmas about my meals.”

  1. Dear Tabby, You felines have very complicated lives. We dogs are much simpler. I flop down on the floor; Mindy and Bear discuss who gets the end of the sofa that doesn’t have our human on it and that’s pretty much it. You might want to consider the wisdom of the Daog, “Simplify, simplify.” Your life would be less stressful. Yours forever and ever, Dusty T. Dog

      That is one of the differences between feline and canine. We have to work it out and bear in mind the various influences. I have to maintain my position as chief of the house. It woiuld be rather common if I just flopped anywhere. I do it with style and care. Preparation for a sleep is something unique and special. Felines do not flop, we sink with style.
      Sleep well – Tabby T. Cat
