Daily Feline Prompt: Felines are not hyperbolic


Of course we do not exaggerate, never. I only escaped from the feline that was chasing me, because I barred my teeth, gave a death threatening snarl and breathed fire through my nose.

My great grandmother was one of the firey cat clan, descended from dragons. She passed on the gift to all the Tabby cats in the line of descendency, the ones with the Macdonalds “M” on the forehead. Not all felines inherit this special gift. The first time my mum walked past the Macdonalds, she knew she had met her destiny. The chief cook had one of the best looking felines in the area. He was strong and imposing and had been eating Big Macs since he was a kitten.  He thrived on them, had muscles, the firey twinkle in his eyes from the ketchup and impressed all the ladies, but my mum was the one he wanted.

It was love at first ignition, and mum was especially drawn by the smell. A feline that eats Bigmacs all its ife, has that certain scent in its fur. And so I was created: the Tabby cat with the Macdonalds “M” on the forehead. I was envied by all, I had the mark. I was even partial to eating carbohydrates with my food, especially if I could sandwich the hamburger in them. I was the only feline on the block that even enjoyed a topping of onion and pickled cucumber on my food. My mum was proud of me, I was a daughter of the hamburger King. He also had dragon blood flowing through his veins. We could grill our own hamburgers by just breathing on them.

You do not believe me, I am exaggering?  Of course not, jealousy prevails everywhere, but I know the full truth. Come nearer and have a sample of my flaming breath.

      No problem Dusty. Basically I do not like dogs, avoid them where I can, but you are the great exception. We will never meet in person, there is a big stretch of water in between, which I only like to drink, but not swim in and the fire would probably extinguish on the way if I decided to take the plunge, and so we have the perfect relationship.

  1. Dear Tabby: This comment is for Mrs Human, but my human is making me type it on my paw-pad, although I’m not sure our operating systems are compatible, given that yours is feline and mine canine and we know what trouble there can be when those two systems collide. My human reads your posts daily and usually laughs. Humans are difficult to understand and they have this thing called ‘humor’ which is, as you know, unnecessary in the world of dog (or cat). Anyway here’s the message:

    I’ve nominated you for the Mystery Blogger Award. Link is: https://sparksfromacombustiblemind.wordpress.com/2016/11/05/award-time/

    I really think you embody the requirements for the Mystery Blogger! 😀 (and Tabby too of course) 😉

    • In the name of my human I thank you for the nomination, but I am so perfect, that I do not accept blogging awards. If I did my site would be inundated with them and I would no longer have room for my other trophies. I appreciate the thought, and have included you in my canine fan club.
