Daily Feline Prompt: Liminal Felines


“Tabby, what are you doing in the bathroom?”

“I am endeavouring to make new experiences in life. I am in a liminal phase.”

“In a what?”

“A liminal phase. I thought even the human brain would digest that one. I am crossing a threshold into the unknown realm of things that happen beneath a cupboard in a human bathroom. It is an enlightening experience. I am endeavouring to discover the ambiguity of a feline life in an unknown cosmos. ”

“And have you found what you were looking for?”

“Not exactly. There are many equational discoveries to be made and many paths to cross before I arrive. By the way Mrs. Human, did you know that this place would be ideal for a comfortable sleeping area. Perhaps you could place one of my cushions here where I am sitting. I would be protected from any invaders.”

“Tabby we have no invaders, and I do not intend to make the bathroom another one of your sleeping places. Everywhere I go in this home, there is a corner with a cushion in case you want to sleep there.”

“I only want to help Mrs. Human. The more thresholds I cross the more space I have and the more I can expand my understanding of the limitations of the human race. It must be boring being a human and always sleeping in the same place. We felines extend our possibilities and overcome borders with no problem.”

“Of course you have no problem Tabby, because you have taken own everything. You even sleep on my bed during the day.”

“Just being liminal Mrs. Human.”

“Have you discovered a new word?”

“No, not me, I am just following a blog suggestion and find this is a very handy word. It has extended my understanding of overcoming the barricades imposed by the human race.”

“I do not impose barricades Tabby. You have a cat flap and and can come and go how you please.”

“But I cannot open a tin of tuna fish.”

“I do that for you Tabby.”

“But only when you want to, it is an infringement of my liminal abilities. One day, not so far away, when the golden sun sets on the horizon of the feline kingdom of earth, we will have our paw friendly tin opener and the threshold to independence and life without humans will be achieved.”

“Yes Tabby, but in the meanwhile you will have to wait until I open the tin for your next meal.”

“Ok, I suppose humans have to feel necessary sometimes.”

  1. Dear Tabby, I am also going through the same phase you see. You have to wait for tuna for next meal and I have to wait for my new curtains for sky high doors and windows. My old curtauns look like skirts in my new house. Be patient. Everything will fall into place.

  2. Dear Tabby, If you were as large as I, you could commandeer any place you wanted. Unfortunately, my human has decided she does NOT want me sleeping in her office/studio so she has put her bicycle there, barricading the warm, wool carpet I liked to dig into a nice warm nest. It’s not like she uses that room much. I’d come to regard it as a large, comfy cave away from my sisters. OH well. I’m getting even by sleeping in the kitchen and digging up the rug she uses from the back door. This is definitely a dominance situation and this time I aim to win. Yours forever and ever, Dusty T. Dog

      Yes humans can be fussy when we decide to improve our living quality. They do not realise we are also improving theirs as well but organising their lives. They can be very fussy sometimes. I find sleeping in high places is very positive as I can keep an eye on everything in my kingdom. One of the advantages of being light pawed and agile.They even put up a ladder for me to climb to the top of the cupboard, but I prefer to jump. Mrs. Human tends to get all worked up about me having an accident. I like to do it to further my studies in the human philosophy and for human reaction studies. I am pawing a guidebook to human behaviour, am sure it will be a best seller.
      In the meanwhile make the most of finding a sleeping place and have fun.
      Tabby T. Cat
