Daily Feline Prompt: The Feline Protest Movement


“Tabby, I opened the window, you can go out.”

“I leave my home when I want to, and not because you have opened a window.”

“Ok, then I will shut the window.”

“Mr. Human, what have you done?”

“I shut the window, because there is cold air coming into the room.”

“I did not give you permission to shut the window.”

“But you said you do not want to go out.”

“Of course not, I was making my point. I meowed nothing about shutting a window. I was enjoying the fresh air and the view in the garden. You were the creature that began to talk about going out. I made no mention of going anywhere. I was quite comfortable watching things outside and now I think I will go out. Open the window.”

“Ok Tabby it is now open, but you are still sitting in front of the window.”

“I changed my mind and will stay here, but do not jump to concluions and leave the window open. It is not cold, if you had a built in fur coat like we felines, we would find the temperature just right. One of the constructional human defects.”

“But we have opposable thumbs.”

“Of course you do, do you really think that we felines are going to do everything for the humans. Humans exist to obey the feline commands. If we felines had opposable thumbs, you would have no purpose to your human life. You would be bored and not know what to do with your time. That is why we allowed you the opposable thumbs, to open our tins of tuna fish and empty our litter tray, as well as refilling our water bowls. You may now close the window, I have seen all I wanted to see, and I am in the mood for a tummy tickle. Another advantage of opposable thumbs. A little more to the right, yes between the two front legs and mind my paws. Not so energetic, gently, yes that is perfect.

Imgine not having opposable thumbs Mrs. Human, something would be missing in your human life.”

“Yes definitely Tabby, I would not be able to give you a tummy tickle, or open a tin of tuna fish.  What a boring existence that would be.”

“Mrs. Human are you being ironic?”

“Oh no, of course not Tabby, I would not dare.”

“OK, then open the window again and no protests. You are here to serve.”

“Of course Tabby, of course.”

  1. Dear Tabby, Time was the back door was always open for us to go out and come in as we pleased. Now, thanks to my stupid little sister, Bear, those days are no more. Fortunately, Bear recognizes her culpability in this situation and frequently asks to go outside. When she comes in again, we all get cookies so I guess, in the long run, she did the right thing but… I miss my freedom. Yours forever and ever, Dusty T. Dog

      Drastic situtions call for drastic measures.Order a dog flap on your pawpad, with Mrs. Human’s credit card of course. When it arrives it will have a special magnet.You will have to attach it to your collar and then only you will be able to use the dog flap. The only problem is that I am not sure they make dog flaps big enough for your size. Even my litter sister Nera had problems, and he insisted it was not fat but just fluff.

    • There must be a wall outside. We felines love wall watching,one of our favourite occupations. Well done Meekah for following my instructions. Ignore the human,they have funny habits, like constantly opening doors.
