Daily Feline Prompt: Tiny Feline

“Look, Mrs. Human, my secret weapon claw.”

“That is your secret weapon.”

“Yes, all felines have them, they can be very useful. If you have a territorial disagreement with a fellow feline, you just show your secret weapon claw and they quiver wth fright.”

“And then you win the battle.”

“Not quite. Some felines have bigger secret weapon claws than others. That is why I like to keep it sharp.”

“On my furniture.”

“Of course. The wooden leg of your armchair or your bed is very suitable. The leather polster on the chair also serves its purpose for a final polish.”

“But Tabby, I have scratch marks everywhere afterwards.”

“Which shows how suitable it is. If you have scratch marks, it means that the purpose is fulfilled and my secret weapon claw is getting sharper and ideal as a combat weapon.”

“But sometimes I notice you have a problem when clawing on a soft fabric and remain hanging.”

“Yes, they are occupational hazards. Nothing is perfect.”

“And sometimes I might find a claw which has been discarded.”

“One of the sacrifices of war. Otherwise I am quite well equipped.”

“But that secret weapon looks quite tiny.”

“That is because it is a secret weapon. No point in having a weapon that everyone sees.”

  1. My Meekah also likes to sharpen her claws on our furniture, though I believe she does it more as an attention getter, given the timing in which she does so (generally quite early in the mornong when she wants out – we don’t haveva “kitty door” and don’t let her out night (too dangerous)).

    • We have leather armchairs and do not appreciate paw scratches so much, although Tabby is not a big problem. Our Fluffy seemed to be addicted to scratching leather. We are lucky to live in a place which is very cat friendly. Tabby is now an elderly lady, 14 years old, and does not venture so far at night.

      • Meekah doesn’t go far, thankfully, but we do live near a wash w/ coyotes (which have been known to come up to the streets).

        It will be sad when the time comes for Tabby to retire to the cornfields in the sky. I will miss her adventures.
