Daily Feline Prompt: Feline Culture


“Has he gone yet Mrs. Human?”

“Who Tabby?”

“Roschti of course, the feline who lives across the path.”

“He is on his way Tabby. If you are quick enough you might just be able to catch up with him.”

“I beg your pardon. I definitely do not want to”catch up with him”, I prefer to avoid him.”

“You should really make an effort to be more friendly with him. I am sure he would be glad to have a colleague that he can play with.”

“Mrs. Human “play” does not exist in meow, we are more into “fight” and “paw swipe”. Roschti is different to me, so I am really not interested.”

“But he is also a feline.”

“Of course he is a feline, but different. I do not like how he smells and he does not have the MacDonalds “M” on his forehead. He is also different to the Tabby felines.”

“You do not want to tell me because his fur is a different colour.”

“Of course not Mrs. Human, we felines do not recognise “different colour”, we are colour blind. He is just different. If you were a feline you would know what I mean. Only felines understand the differences. Roschti does not have the particular essence necessary to form friendship. And friendship does not exist ….”

“In meow?”

“How did you know I was going to say that.”

“Tabby it seems to me that a lot of expressions do not exist in meow. Being a feline must be very lonely when you do not mix with each other and get to know each other better.”

“We are felines and you are human. And even humans do not always get on so well with each other, can you tell me why?”

“Some humans are sympathetic and others not.”

“You see we are not so different, it is just that all other felines are not sympathetic with no exceptions. I love spending time with my humans. The simplest things in life give me the most pleasure: eating tuna fish and sharpening my claws on the table leg. That is my culture and I am proud of it – definitely not mixing with other felines. It is all about I, me and myself Mrs. Human.

“Yes Tabby, of course.”

  1. Dear Tabby, I understand completely. I despise other canines unless I’m not on the leash with the job of protecting my human. Then they are fun to play with, but my main duty is the protection of my human from the mail man, the UPS delivery driver and other canines. Oh and her friends. Above all, I must protect her from her friends. That is unless they come inside the house and she’s happy to see them. Oh and Bob and Elizabeth. I like them. And Aunt Lois, I love her oh yeah, and Adriano. I love him, too. It seems your human does not understand the good service you provide her keeping pernicious other felines away. Yours forever and ever, Dusty T. Dog

      What a strange life canines lead. I protect no-one and need no-one to protect me. Now and again Mrs. Human helps out, thanks to my feline training programme. Sometimes other humans also enter my home, but I usually retire to a quiet place and leave her to it. I generally avoid other felines and they avoid me as well. Now and again there might be a territorial confrontation, but we deal with it on our own, unless I cannot reach the cat flap in time. It is then that the human training programme is activated and the human ensures that I arrive safely – just a human duty.
