Daily Feline Prompt: A Feline Echo


“Back in the bathroom Tabby? Looks like echoes of Winter are approaching.”

“There are seasons of feline happiness to be celebrated on a warm carpet in a warm bathroom surrounded by walls everywhere. No echoes of other felines wanting to infringe upon my territorial rights, just I, me and myself with a human now and again asking silly questions. And now give me a tummy tickle to make my contentment perfect.”

“Yes of course Tabby, how’s that?”

“Perfect, you may continue.”

“Sorry Tabby, I must go. I have other things to do.”

“Why all the stress Mrs. Human. I am not yet finished.”

“But I am, I cannot sit in the bathroom spending time on tummy tickles.”

“But they are necessary to my transcendetial whisker meditations. I was reflecting on the relaxing influences of a human massage in the right place at the right time and you have other things to do. What could be more important than me? I am the centre of your universe, the fulfilment of your human purpose. Without me you would be lost, no target in your human life, a wandering creature looking for a meaning to life. So now perhaps beneath the chin, slowly and carefully. Do not forget the side of the face. I particularly savour┬áthat. Where are you gong.?”

“Tabby I really must go. I cannot spend the next hour giving you tickle therapy when I must prepare your evening meal.”

“Oh, I see. That is no problem. I assume it will be something to endow my deigetive system with a purpose. Vitamin pellets need no preparion: open the bag and throw them into my food bowl – no consideration for my well being and no visual advantages. I assume in that case it will be an unfogettable meal, one worthy of a feline master chef reward.”

“Definately Tabby, Nothing can be good enough for my feline master. How is tuna fish, straight from the tin, not shaken, just carefully mixed, with a sprinkling of cat nip.”

“Exellent, but do not forget the juice. I like to have some licks of juice before digesting the main course. It makes it all worth while. And afterwards as a dessert you may continue the tummy tickle.”

“Or course Tabby. I sometimes have the feeling that I spoil you too much.”

“Too much does not exist in meow Mrs. Human.”

“Of course, how stupid.”
